Invesco Has Something in Common with McDonald's and Coca-Cola

Reported by Armie Margaret Lee

Invesco [see profile] recently tapped Leo Burnett as its agency of record. Leo Burnett, which has created campaigns for brands such as Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble, McDonald's and Kellogg's, will handle Invesco's brand positioning and strategy in North America.

An Invesco spokesman told The MFWire.com that the company's new ad campaign will be out later this year or early next year.

Leo Burnett's appointment as agency of record comes in the wake of Invesco's purchase of Van Kampen Investments and the rest of Morgan Stanley's retail asset management business.

Leo Burnett's offices in Chicago and Toronto will work on Invesco's Masterbrand program.

One of Invesco's subsidiaries, Invesco Aim (into which the Morgan Stanley's business was merged), dropped the "Aim" from its name in April.
