Invesco (IVZ - Free Report) has announced its assets under management (AUM) for July 2019. The company's preliminary month-end AUM of $1,198.7 billion increased slightly from the prior month.

The rise was mainly driven by non-management fee earning AUM inflows, favorable market returns, increase in money market AUM and reinvested distributions. These were partly offset by net long-term outflows. Also, foreign-exchange movement lowered the month's AUM by $4.6 billion.  

Invesco's preliminary average total AUM through Jul 31 was $1,202.8 billion while preliminary average active AUM totaled $929.7 billion.

At the end of the month, the company's Equity AUM decreased marginally to $572.9 billion from June. Also, Alternatives AUM declined 1.2% to $187.6 billion.

However, Balanced AUM and Fixed Income AUM for July were $64.7 billion and $274.3 billion, increasing nearly 1% and 0.3%, respectively. Also, Money Market AUM of $99.2 billion grew 3.7% sequentially.

Improving AUM balance, strategic acquisitions and increasing global presence augur well for the company's prospects.
