History

The origins of the firm date back to December 1935, when Invesco was first incorporated. The company assumed its current form in 1997 with the merger between Invesco PLC and AIM Investments.[3] Upon completion of the merger the company adopted the name Amvescap.

Invesco has grown significantly through acquisitions since the turn of the century, gaining control of asset managers such as the ETF firm PowerShares Capital Management and the Wilbur Ross-led restructuring specialist WL Ross & Co.[3] Invesco allows its investment centers to run their investment strategies independently, and differentiates itself by focusing exclusively on asset management and not offering brokerage, custody, or other services commonly offered by other asset managers.

In 2004, the company agreed to a $450 million settlement with the Attorneys General of New York, Colorado and the SEC after allegations of improper trading practices.[4]

In 2005, Martin Flanagan was appointed Chief Executive Officer.CEO[5] Since that time the company has been restored to profitability. In May, 2007, along with shareholder approval, the company changed the name back to Invesco PLC.

After the close of trading on 3 December 2007, Invesco PLC moved its primary stock market listing from the London Stock Exchange to the NYSE and became domiciled in Bermuda, adopting the new name Invesco Ltd.[6] As a result, the company's shares were withdrawn from the FTSE 100 Index and added to the Russell 1000 index.[7] Total assets under management at the end of June 2008 were $461.3 billion.[8]

It announced the anticipated listing of the PowerShares Global Progressive Transportation Portfolio (PTRP) on Sept. 18, 2008, on the Nasdaq Stock Market. The PTRP is based on the Wilder NASDAQ OMX Global Energy Efficient Transport Index.[9][10]

On October 19, 2009, Invesco bought Van Kampen Investments from Morgan Stanley for $1.5 billion.[11]
