Hundreds of jobs are coming to Atlanta as Invesco, one of the world’s leading investment managers, expands its global headquarters in Midtown.
Invesco will move to a new building in Midtown Union, currently under development by MetLife Investment Management & Granite Properties and scheduled for completion in August 2022.
Officials say the expansion represents a $70 million investment that will increase its workforce by 500. Invesco first came to Atlanta in 1978, moving its global headquarters in 2007.
“We’re excited by the opportunity to build on our 40-year presence in the city and meaningfully expand our local team to nearly 1,200 professionals, which will enhance our ability to meet client needs here in Atlanta and across the globe,” said Invesco President and CEO Martin L. Flanagan. “We’re also pleased to join MetLife Investment Management & Granite Properties in the development of one of Atlanta’s premier locations at the corner of 17th Street and West Peachtree Street. To further strengthen our global operating platform, we will make a significant, $70 million investment in our business here for the benefit of our clients, employees, and shareholders, while continuing to play an active role in our community.”
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms thanked Invesco for its commitment to Atlanta.
“This expansion is a testament to the role public-private partnerships play in creating new jobs and economic opportunity for Atlanta residents,” Bottoms said.
Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp praised Atlanta for its track record in attracting the global headquarters for many companies including Invesco.
“Georgia’s unmatched pro-business environment has repeatedly served as a magnet for many global headquarters, but there is no greater endorsement than when one of our own chooses to grow and invest in the Peach State,” said Kemp.
