Aim Management Group has launched a Web site so that investment representatives can contact the Houston-based mutual fund company on the Internet.
The site was designed so that investment reps can order sales materials electronically. They can also listen to current commentary from Aim portfolio managers through the use of audio technology.
Customers of investment representatives can submit questions about their accounts to Aim through their computers. In addition, customers and their financial advisers can access reports on the performance of the company's portfolios.
Aim is "committed to applying cutting-edge technology to meet the ever- changing needs of shareholders," said Mark E. McMeans, Aim's director of electronic commerce.
Aim, which earlier this week announced merger plans with London-based Invesco PLC, manages $58 billion in assets.
