The Charles Schwab Corporation today announced the completion of its acquisition of ThomasPartners, Inc. The acquisition agreement, originally announced October 15, 2012, includes an upfront payment of $85 million in cash and the opportunity for additional payments contingent on future growth in assets under management. "We are pleased to be able to provide our retail and investment advisor clients with convenient and cost effective access to ThomasPartners' investment acumen," said Walt Bettinger, Schwab president and chief executive officer. "Their approach to the construction of growth-oriented investment portfolios that generate dividend income streams makes enormous sense as our population ages, and will be an important addition to our existing money management line-up." Headquartered in Wellesley, Massachusetts, ThomasPartners is a growth and dividend income-focused asset management firm with $2.2 billion in AUM as of November 30, 2012, that has outperformed relevant benchmarks cumulatively since its inception in March 2003.
