Columbia completes integration of BMO GAM UK funds

Columbia Threadneedle has rebranded and integrated BMO Global Asset Management (EMEA) UK funds into its portfolio.

The rebranding of the asset management firm, acquired in November 2021, brings together its products and savings plans, website and legal entities under a single global brand.

As part of the integration, all UK-domiciled funds now start with the prefix CT replacing the previous BMO and Threadneedle names.

For example, the £256 million BMO LGM Global Emerging Markets Growth and Income Fund has been renamed to CT Global Emerging Markets Growth and Income Fund.

All BMO-branded EU-domiciled funds will also be rebranded with the CT prefix.

Threadneedle Luxembourg SICAV funds will also adopt the CT prefix at a later date.

Pyrford International will continue to operate independently within Columbia Threadneedle Investments.

Nick Ring, CEO of EMEA at Columbia Threadneedle Investments, said: “Bringing our products and strategies under the Columbia Threadneedle Investments global brand is an important step in the integration of BMO GAM (EMEA) into our business.

“Together we can bring even greater benefits for all our clients: creating deeper research and better investment insights, offering a wider range of investment capabilities, and continuing our responsible investment commitment.”

Together, Columbia manages £531 billion across a range of equities, fixed income and alternatives strategies, and a suite of solutions
