Invesco Aim’s site also ranked No. 6 and earned the distinction of “very good” among the 25 mutual fund firms reviewed for the Financial Professionals category.
“Recent branding changes, improvements to the site and additional tools and services on InvescoAim.com are proving to be successful in building strong relationships and putting investors first, which are two of our strategic priorities,” said Brent St. Pierre, Officer, North America e-Services for Invesco.
InvescoAim.com underwent changes associated with the launch of the firm’s new brand on March 31, 2008, which led to easier navigation and a cleaner look with a new logo, color scheme and font selection. A redesigned literature center and new types of content have also been introduced, including videos and webcasts, as well as enhancing access to such third-party investment tracking software as Microsoft Money and Quicken.
