  • Background:
    With roots dating back to 1927, Van Kampen Investments attracted a significant amount of attention in the 1990s and 2000s. Though it had a fully-diversified fund lineup, it was later known for its value equity and municipal bond products.

    First, in June 1996, the firm -- known as Van Kampen American Capital at the time -- was acquired by Morgan Stanley for $1.2 billion.

    Morgan Stanley put Van Kampen on the block in 2009. Invesco jumped at the opportunity, and in October 2009 agreed to purchase Morgan Stanley's asset management business (including Van Kampen) for $1.5 billion. The deal closed on June 1, 2010.

    Invesco rebranded Van Kampen's funds while retaining the firm's original name, calling them the Invesco Van Kampen Funds.

    The merger eliminated 60 sales jobs, but the number of retirement consultants increased from nine to 12. Van Kampen sales chief David Linton left the firm, and product and marketing head Elizabeth Hughes Eginton moved to Morgan Stanley Smith Barney.
