To inspire and create positive change
to better our world.

To further IMA’s commitment to protecting assets and making a difference, IMA will govern our business responsibly and act in a way that inspires positive change to ensure IMA remains independent, while helping our associates, our clients and our communities remain resilient as we face collective challenges.

While we are just beginning our journey in some areas, we are well down the road in others. Regardless of where we are, we pledge to listen, learn and lead to inspire and create positive change to better our world.
