AIM Trimark Investments evolves brand identity; becomes Invesco Trimark



    TORONTO, Aug. 11 /CNW/ - As part of a broader brand strategy used by
parent firm Invesco Ltd., AIM Funds Management Inc., carrying on business as
AIM Trimark Investments, today was renamed Invesco Trimark Ltd. The new name
reinforces the bringing together of the strength of Invesco's global
resources, including distinct investment management capabilities from around
the world, with the proven 27-year history of the Trimark investment process.
Invesco is one of the world's largest independent investment managers, with
more than 5,300 employees in 13 investment centres worldwide serving clients
in 100 countries.
    "We believe Invesco Trimark can meet client needs through a range of
distinct investment capabilities that are unmatched here in Canada," said
Peter Intraligi, President and Chief Operating Officer of Invesco Trimark. "We
are building upon our strong Canadian heritage while drawing on Invesco's
global strength."
    "I have great respect for the legacy of the Trimark tradition and how the
team has helped investors build and protect wealth over the long term," said
Invesco President and CEO Martin L. Flanagan. "Invesco Trimark's new brand
identity in Canada reflects our commitment to complementing the tremendous
value that the Trimark discipline provides our clients, with the combined
power, resources and investment management capabilities of our global
organization."
    In keeping with many of the Invesco businesses, Invesco Trimark has
adopted a new logo fashioned after Ama Dablam, one of the most impressive
mountain peaks in the Himalayas that symbolizes our strength, endurance and
stability.
    Additionally, to reflect the depth and breadth of the broader global
organization, Invesco Trimark's fund names will now reference the specific
Invesco investment centre where each fund is managed. There are no changes to
the investment objectives, strategies or philosophies of these funds as a
direct result of the re-branding.
