Power Financial will acquire Putnam Investments from Marsh & McLennan for $3.9 billion, the companies announced Thursday. The deal includes MMC’s 25% stake in private equity firm Thomas H. Lee Partners.

While Putnam has lost 60% of assets in the past five years, its remaining $192 billion will give the Canadian acquirer a presence in the U.S. mutual fund market.
