"U.S. Bank Acquires PFM's Asset Management Business," says a press release published Thursday. It explains, "U.S. Bank announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase PFM Asset Management LLC under its subsidiary, U.S. Bancorp Asset Management. PFM Asset Management will continue to operate as a separate entity. PFM Asset Management and U.S. Bancorp Asset Management had combined assets under management and assets under administration of more than $325 billion on March 31, 2021." Eric Thole, head of U.S. Bancorp Asset Management, comments, "PFM Asset Management brings a wide array of client relationships and product offerings, including local government investment pools, outsourced chief investment officer services and separately managed accounts in both fixed income and multi-asset class strategies. These services complement U.S. Bank's current book of business, and we're thrilled to have the opportunity to increase our presence nationally and solidify U.S. Bank's position as a leading provider of investment solutions." Marty Margolis, head of PFM Asset Management, adds, "This sale combines the resources of two organizations who recognize the importance of providing clients with exemplary customer service; our commitment to clients will remain a priority throughout the transition. We're also very pleased that U.S. Bank aligns with our fundamental belief in creating a diverse, inclusive and ethical culture." The release also says, "PFM's financial advisory business is not part of this acquisition and will continue to operate independently as the nation's leading independent financial advisor in terms of transactions and par amount. For the year ended Dec. 31, 2020, PFM advised on 995 overall transactions totaling more than $69.7 billion in par amount, according to Ipreo."
