Competitive Landscape

Franklin Resources BEN announced preliminary AUM by its subsidiaries of $690.6 billion for August. Results displayed a 2.7% decrease from $709.5 billion recorded as of Jul 31, 2019. Slight net outflows and net market declines led to this downside. Further, the reported figure went down 4.4% year on year.

Cohen & Steers CNS reported preliminary AUM of $69.6 billion as of Aug 31, 2019, up 3% from the prior-month level of $67.5 billion. Market appreciation of $2 billion and net inflows of $240 million were partly offset by distributions of $186 million.

Invesco’s IVZ preliminary August-end AUM of $1,175.1 billion decreased 2% from the prior month. The decline primarily stemmed from net long-term outflows, reduced money market AUM, foreign exchange, non-management fee earning AUM outflows and unfavorable market returns. These were partly offset by reinvested distributions. Notably, unfavorable foreign-exchange movement reduced the month’s AUM by $2.2 billion.
