Coming together

BMO GAM (EMEA) is becoming part of Columbia Threadneedle Investments, unified in a common goal – your success.

In November 2021, BMO GAM (EMEA) became part of Columbia Threadneedle Investments, bringing additional capabilities in areas such as investment solutions, alternatives and responsible investment, as well as a range of investment trusts.
Since then, we have been working hard to bring together the best of both organisations in a considered and thoughtful way with a focus on client outcomes. From 4 July 2022 we will be united under one brand, unified in a common goal – your success.

By coming together, we can bring even greater benefits for all our clients

  • even deeper research capabilities, meaning sharper insights and smarter investment decisions
  • even broader capabilities across equities, fixed income and alternatives, meaning a broader range of funds and solutions
  • even stronger Responsible Investment commitment

What changes will I see?

We are removing the BMO name and brand from our business on 4 July 2022, bringing the business under the Columbia Threadneedle Investments brand and look and feel. This is a significant milestone in our transition to become one integrated organisation, following the acquisition of BMO GAM (EMEA) by Columbia Threadneedle’s parent company Ameriprise Financial, Inc. last year.

This will impact a number of areas:

Whatever world you want, we can help you reach it

We are excited to present our expanded range of products and solutions under one unified brand.

There is a strong cultural fit between the two firms, which will be further strengthened as we come together under the Columbia Threadneedle Investments brand. We share a client-centric culture, a collaborative and research-based investment approach, and a long-held commitment to responsible investment principles. The world is continually changing, and with it our clients’ needs, which is why we are always evolving. Whatever world you want, our purpose is to help you achieve it.
