The transaction is due for completion in the first quarter of 2013.

Michael Dobson, Chief Executive of Schroders, said STW's long-term investment strategies and strong performance track record would be a valuable addition to the company.

"This acquisition increases our assets under management in US fixed income by 50% to $35bn, broadens our product and service platform in fixed income and extends our institutional client base in the US," he said in a statement.

William H. Williams, founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Information Officer of STW, said the deal was a perfect fit.

"We have been determined in our efforts to partner with a firm that values clients the same way as STW has for over three decades," he said.

"I believe that this transaction is the best decision for STW clients and employees. I look forward to the continued success of the combined business in the years ahead."
