TORONTO, Feb. 20 /CNW/ - AIM Trimark Investments today announced that
Trimark Advantage Bond Fund, which had been closed to new investors since
May 30, 2003, is reopen to new investors effective immediately.
Managed by the award-winning Trimark fixed-income team of Rex Chong,
Anthony Imbesi, Alfred Samson and analyst Gary Lew, the Fund invests primarily
in Canadian high-yield fixed-income securities. Through their investment
discipline, the team applies rigorous credit analysis and relative value
analysis to identify securities whose fundamental values they believe are not
yet reflected in their prices or credit ratings.
As a result of more compelling valuations in the high-yield market, the
portfolio management team has begun to find attractive investment
opportunities that were previously unavailable. The team is also uncovering
more opportunities because of an increase in the Fund's foreign content limit
from 30% to 49%. This increased limit is designed to benefit investors over
the long term, as a broader set of investment opportunities can enhance
diversification and potential return.
Trimark Advantage Bond Fund's investment objectives and strategies will
not change with the reopening of the Fund to new investors.
Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses may all
be associated with mutual fund investments. Mutual funds are not guaranteed,
their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
Please read the simplified prospectus before investing. Copies are available
from your advisor or AIM Trimark Investments.
