Global institutional fund manager, IFM Investors has announced that its investment outperformance has led the firm to announce a fee rebate to clients globally delivering lower costs and higher net returns to people in 19 countries.
The firm also said it would continue to invest in expanding its capabilities to support its clients’ focus on investing globally and would aim to retain funds to ensure a resilient financial balance sheet position, given the range of uncertainties across global markets.

“We want to send a very clear message to our investors, and indeed, our competitors, we are determined to set world-class standards that genuinely put investors first.”
