“The transaction will allow Amundi to strengthen its presence in the US via a larger US investment and distribution platform. It will also provide Amundi’s clients worldwide with access to a broader range of high-performing US investment solutions. Thanks to this transaction, Amundi will become a strategic shareholder in a US-based asset management firm with a consistent track record of development. This is a compelling proposition for our clients and our employees. It is also a value-creating deal for our shareholders.”
