OneAmerica Closes Acquisition of BMO's U.S. Retirement Services Business

Fast-Growing Industry Leader Adds $26 Billion in Assets

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - September 30, 2015) - OneAmerica announced today that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of BMO Financial Group's Milwaukee-based, U.S. retirement services business, now part of OneAmerica Retirement Services LLC. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"We welcome BMO Retirement Services' clients, advisors and associates to the OneAmerica family, and we look forward to working together to achieve the retirement dreams of each plan participant we serve. This is our most important goal," said OneAmerica President and CEO Scott Davison, who took the helm as CEO last year. "Adding BMO's award-winning service team enhances OneAmerica's already strong position as a leader in the retirement services industry and complements our high-touch, relationship-based service model."

The acquisition increases OneAmerica's assets under administration by approximately $26 billion, bringing the company's total to more than $70 billion -- double the total less than two years ago.

"We're excited to grow our business with a team that shares our values and aligns with our business philosophy," said Bill Yoerger, president of the retirement services division for OneAmerica. "The acquisition reinforces our open architecture, defined contribution recordkeeping services, deepens our individually directed account leadership and creates additional scale."

BMO's U.S. retirement services business has more than 200 professionals serving approximately 830 plans. The retirement services businesses of OneAmerica serve more than 11,000 plans and have more than $30 billion in retirement assets under administration.

OneAmerica has announced that it will continue business operations from BMO Retirement Services' current locations, and most clients will continue to work with their current service teams.

In 2014, OneAmerica announced an agreement to acquire City National Bank's San Diego-based retirement services business, with 240 plans and $6.5 billion in assets under administration.

OneAmerica is the marketing name for the companies of OneAmerica.
