08:31 EDTFIIFederated Investors to acquire $91M in assets from Touchstone Ohio
Federated Investors and Touchstone Advisors have reached a definitive agreement regarding the acquisition by Federated of certain assets relating to Touchstone's management of the Touchstone Ohio Tax-Free Money Market Fund, a series of Touchstone Tax-Free Trust. In connection with the acquisition, approximately $91M in tax-free money market assets will be reorganized from the Touchstone Ohio Tax-Free Money Market Fund into Federated Ohio Municipal Cash Trust, a portfolio with a similar investment objective. Federated Ohio Municipal Cash Trust has approximately $391M in net assets and is a portfolio of the Federated Money Market Obligations Trust, which has approximately $184B in aggregate net assets. With approximately $19B in tax-free, state-specific money market assets under management, Federated offers more tax-free state money market products than any other investment manager. The reorganization is expected to be tax-free and is anticipated to be completed in the second quarter of 2015. Closing of the transaction is subject to shareholder approval and certain other contingencies.
