Invesco's (IVZ) April AUM Rises Marginally on Favorable Markets

Invesco IVZ announced preliminary assets under management (AUM) for April 2023. The company’s month-end AUM of $1,484.3 billion represented a marginal increase from the previous month.

AUM was positively impacted by favorable market returns, which increased it by $5 billion. Money market net inflows were $1.4 billion. The company experienced net long-term outflows of $2.2 billion and non-management fee-earning net outflows of $2.1 billion.Owing to foreign exchange rate movements, AUM decreased $0.4 billion.

Invesco’s preliminary average total AUM in the quarter through Apr 30 was $1,469.4 billion and its preliminary average active AUM came in at $992 billion.

At the end of the reported month, the company’s Equity AUM was $696.7 billion, marginally up from the previous month. Fixed Income AUM of $322.2 billion was slightly up. On the other hand, Money Market AUM improved marginally from the prior-month end to $212.8 billion.

Alternatives AUM was marginally down to $185.6 billion.  Balanced AUM for April was $67 billion, falling 1.3% from the March 2023-end.

Invesco’s strong global presence, solid AUM balance and initiatives to capitalize on investors’ demand for different investment strategies poise it well for growth. However, despite the cost-saving efforts, the company’s expenses have been increased , which will likely hurt profitability to some extent.

Over the past six months, shares of Invesco have lost 18.1% compared with the 14.4% decline recorded by the industry.
