To our clients:
As part of our ongoing efforts to provide timely information to our clients, I need to inform you of certain
developments in AIM’s Investments Department.
Effective today, Chief Investment Officer Ed Larsen has been placed on a voluntary leave of absence at
his request to allow him to resolve regulatory inquiries related to his role in the market timing
investigations into AIM. As we communicated to you on Sept. 7, the settlements which resulted from
those investigations are pending final approval by the SEC.
Meanwhile, Chief Equity Officer Phil Ferguson and Chief Fixed-Income Officer Bob Alley will continue
to focus on their respective areas of expertise. Phil and Bob will report directly to me.
Combined, these professionals have more than 50 years of experience in investment management. They
know our people and processes well and are well-respected within our industry. They remain committed
to ensuring our investment professionals deliver on our promise to build investment solutions for our
clients and shareholders.
