FleetBoston Financial announced today that it has completed the process of acquiring the asset management units of Liberty Financial Companies. Last summer FleetBoston agreed to acquire those businesses for $900 million. The firm also assumed about $110 million in revolving debt.

The completed transaction adds $47 billion in assets under management to the company’s total assets, which now total at about $170 billion. Thirty-four percent of those assets are allocated in mutual funds, the company said. The company also offers institutional and high-net-worth accounts.
