NEW YORK (
has finished the acquisition of $14 billion in money market assets that were formerly managed by
's RidgeWorth Capital Management.
The assets were gradually transitioned into Federated money market funds beginning in September 2010, according to a press release.
Federated acquired the assets in July. The assets originally were composed of $17 billion in money market assets contained in nine RidgeWorth money market mutual funds. However, due to "market fluctuations" between July and November, the value of those assets depreciated to $14 billion, a Federated spokesman said.
The remaining assets were transitioned into six existing Federated money market mutual funds with similar investment objectives, according to Federated.
