This phrase best described our unwavering commitment and determination to build an organization that can achieve consistently superior financial results for our clients. AIMCo was created in 2008 on the premise that, with $70 billion of assets, we had the critical mass to create an investment organization that could rank among the best.
Our starting point was not ideal. The investment organization was under-resourced. revamping our systems and achieving best practice for operational effectiveness will take another two years. Guided by a strong Board, we have made the most of AIMCo's freedom to attract and retain the best. Our efforts to achieve better than market returns are paying off in listed assets. AIMCo targets long-term results. We are putting in place the foundation necessary for success. In a few years it should be clear we are achieving our goals.
