Return on ResponsibilityTM new motto for one of Canada's leading responsible investment managers

Vancouver, BC - February 17, 2006 - Real Assets Investment Management Inc. today announces its name change to Inhance Investment Management Inc., effective immediately.

Inhance chose this new name to better communicate the company's vision and investment philosophy: to enhance long-term returns for investors by rigorously incorporating environmental, social and governance criteria into traditional financial analysis.

"Inhance speaks to the integration of our investment process with our enhanced analysis of environmental, social and governance performance. We also use constructive shareholder initiatives to enhance corporate responsibility and profitability among the companies we hold," says Inhance's CEO, Kerry Ho.

"We believe that by balancing responsibilities to shareholders, communities, customers and employees, companies can deliver long-term value to all stakeholders. We refer to our approach as Return on ResponsibilityTM."

Inhance has recently rounded-out its offerings by adding three new mutual funds to its family, for a total of five mutual funds. Along with the corporate name change, all Inhance's mutual funds have also changed names, while retaining their investment objectives. The following new mutual fund names are effective immediately:

  • Inhance Global Leaders Fund (formerly Real Assets Social Leaders Fund)
  • Inhance Balanced Fund (formerly Real Assets Balanced Fund)
  • Inhance Canadian Equity Fund (formerly Real Assets Canadian Equity Fund)
  • Inhance Monthly Income Fund (formerly Real Assets Monthly Income Fund)
  • Inhance Money Market Fund (formerly Real Assets Money Market Fund)
