We’ve been together for a while.
Now we’re making it official.

We’ve been part of BMO since 2014, and later this year we’re officially changing our name. 

You’ll be in good company

Founded over 200 years ago as Bank of Montreal, today BMO is the 8th largest bank (by assets) in North America and provides a broad range of financial products to over 12 million customers worldwide.

The same great service, and more

Just like F&C, BMO is focused on providing customers with a market leading experience, and being part of a larger global business means that we’ll be able to bring you even more routes to investment success.

You don’t need to do anything

Later this year you’ll start to hear from us as BMO – you don’t need to do anything. You’ll remain invested in exactly the same investments, speak to the same teams, and there are no changes to your accounts.

More information

We’ll keep you updated as we make the change, to ensure it is as seamless as possible – if you have any further questions about this or your investment(s) you can contact us on 0800 369 8562.

Our ambition is to complete the transition to BMO by the end of 2018.

Our customers are increasingly looking for strong global investment solution providers. Our goal is to provide effortless access to investments and having the majority of our investment capabilities under a single brand helps us to provide that as well as simplify the way we communicate.

BMO has a long, proud history and a very strong brand in North America and one that we have started to build here in Europe over the past three years. Under the BMO name we will continue with our ambitious plans to expand our business, and ensuring it is centred around our customers. 

Whilst we see the benefit of ensuring individual trust names align with the name of the savings plan accounts, ultimately, any decision to change the name of a specific trust is one for each of the independent investment trust boards to make at the appropriate time.

Investors in Foreign & Colonial Investment Trust please note that following shareholder approval in April, the directors will change the legal name of the Company to “F&C Investment Trust PLC” later in the year.

We continue to have ongoing dialogue with each of the investment trust boards in relation to the changes. The boards understand our ambition to align to a global brand, including changing the name of the savings plan accounts in which they are offered. However, any decision to change the name of a specific trust is one for each of the independent boards to make at the appropriate time.
