Announcement from BMO Asset Management

BMO’s recent announcement that it has reached an agreement to sell its EMEA Asset Management means the Company’s Manager will, subject to completion, become part of Columbia Threadneedle Investments; the global asset management business of Ameriprise Financial Inc. Our focus, as always, will be on the delivery of the highest levels of performance and standards of service for our shareholders as this new relationship develops.
Chairman, Beatrice Hollond
