Invesco Ltd.IVZ reported preliminary month-end assets under management (AUM) of $977.3 billion for May 2018. The figure reflects slight increase from the prior month.
This rise has been mainly driven by favorable market returns, improvement in money market AUM, net long-term inflows and non-management fee earning AUM inflows. However, FX decreased May AUM by $5.1 billion.
Invesco's preliminary average total AUM for the quarter through May 31 was $977.3 billion, while preliminary average active AUM came in at $733.3 billion.

Additionally, Balanced AUM of $58.5 billion declined 2% sequentially. However, Alternatives AUM increased slightly to $147.9 billion compared with the last month.
While the company has been witnessing continued growth in AUM for the past few years, supporting revenue growth, an overall challenging operating environment seems to be weighing on investors' mind, at present.
