BMO Global Asset Management is focused on meeting the needs of investors, both locally and globally, with capabilities in virtually all public markets. The business is characterized by specialized, regional investment teams providing a range of investment solutions to clients across North America, Europe, Asia/Pacific and the Middle East.
The firm was originally established in 1982, subsequently acquired by Burns Fry Limited in 1991, and as a result of the Burns Fry merger with Nesbitt Thomson in 1994, became part of the BMO Financial Group.
In 2014 BMO acquired F&C Asset Management plc through its wholly owned subsidiary, BMO GAM (Europe) Limited. This acquisition positions BMO GAM as a globally significant money manager, enhancing its investment platform capabilities and providing attractive opportunities to service wealth markets all around the world. We have been recognized as one of Pension & Investments Top 100 Money Managers based on worldwide assets.
With this acquisition, BMO GAM now has 20+ offices in 14 countries serving clients across five continents, and is better able to leverage ideas cross-border and bring more comprehensive solutions to our clients around the world.
