David Logan, head of Distribution, BMO Global Asset Management said: “Customers are increasingly looking for strong international investment opportunity providers, and our goal has always been to provide our clients with easy access to investment solutions, and our global and local capabilities, combined under one single brand, help us achieve that and communication to further simplify with our customers in all our regions.
“The investments we have made in EMEA’s BMO Global Asset Management business and brand over the last three years provide us with a solid foundation to take another step toward our unified brand claim as we grow in the UK , EMEA and continue worldwide.”
