TORONTO, Jan. 26, 2016 /CNW/ - In an effort to enhance the investment experience of clients, Invesco Canada announced changes to the structure of its Trimark Canadian Equities team. Effective today, the team will be split into two distinct groups while retaining the highly collaborative Trimark investment philosophy.

The Canadian Equity team will be led by Alan Mannik and Clayton Zacharias, both Vice Presidents of Trimark Investments, while the Canadian Equity Income team will be led by Brian Tidd, Vice President, Trimark Investments.

Combined, Trimark Investments will include 13 investment professionals focused on Canadian equities, who also leverage the knowledge and expertise of the 19-member Trimark Global Equities and Fixed-Income teams.

As a result of this change, Invesco is pleased to appoint Mr. Mannik as lead manager of Trimark Canadian Fund/Class and Invesco Select Canadian Equity Fund, replacing Ian Hardacre in this role. Mr. Mannik will be supported by Mr. Zacharias and Mark Uptigrove on these funds.

Mr. Mannik is currently lead manager for Trimark Select Balanced Fund and Trimark Canadian Opportunity Fund/Class, and Mr. Zacharias and Mr. Uptigrove will also join him on these funds.

The Canadian Equity team, consisting of three established portfolio managers, Mr. Mannik, Mr. Zacharias and Mr. Uptigrove and a pool of four analysts, will be responsible for:

  • Trimark Income Growth Fund
  • Trimark Canadian Endeavour Fund

  • Trimark Select Balanced Fund

Mr. Hardacre, Head of Canadian Equities, will help transition the portfolios to the new team before leaving Invesco Canada to pursue other interests. Over the past 18 years, Mr. Hardacre has been a consistently strong advocate of the Trimark discipline and a key contributor to the culture of the firm. He has played a significant role in the development of talent, building a great team and instilling the values of collaboration and accountability. We thank him for his past service and wish him the best in his future endeavours.
