And the Leading DWS Bidders Are

News summary by MFWire's editors

Who's going to snap up DWS Investments [profile] here in the U.S.? Douglas Appell of Pensions & Investments reports that, according to unnamed bankers, Claymore and Rydex acquirer Guggenheim Partners [profile] and Delaware [profile] acquirer Macquarie led the pack as of Friday, with Putnam parent Power Financial trailing.

Last week Reuters put Guggenheim and Macquarie, along with Columbia parent Ameriprise and with State Street, on the shortlist in the auction, which includes all of Deutsche Bank's global asset management business, minus the Asian and European mutual fund arms [see MFWire.com, 2/14/2012].

P&I says Power may have fallen behind because its focusing on just the American piece of DWS, while Guggenheim and Macquarie are both bidding for the whole shebang, which also includes institutional, insurance and real estate asset management businesses.

Yet the trade pub isn't counting Power and Putnam out of the running just yet. The article offers a look at what a DWS deal would mean for Putnam chief Bob Reynolds and his team.
