Integrated Asset Management Corp. Announces Launch of River Plate House Capital Management Inc.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 7, 2010) - Integrated Asset Management Corp. ("IAM") (TSX:IAM) announced today the launch of River Plate House Capital Management Inc. ("River Plate House").

River Plate House was founded in May 2010 by Michael H. Hyman, President, CEO and CIO, Julian C. Smith, Executive Vice President and COO, and majority partner IAM. River Plate House is located in the IAM Toronto offices.  River Plate House is registered with the Ontario Securities Commission as an Investment Fund Manager, Portfolio Manager and Exempt Market Dealer.

River Plate House is a unique, solutions-based global alternative investment manager offering macro global government bond long / short investment strategies focused on real interest rates, as well as customized solutions for managing asset / liability and longevity risk.

Michael Hyman has long been an innovator and pioneer in global fixed income and risk management. He is the author of two books "Power of Global Capital" and "New Ways for Managing Global Financial Risks".

In 1987, Michael founded, built and ultimately sold GH Asset Management in London, England. He was the top-ranked global fixed income manager in a 500+ manager universe for 5 consecutive years and achieved an annualized rate of return of 16.7% over a 10 year period. River Plate House focuses on adding "real" value to the single currency return in diversified and liquid multi-currency global government bond portfolios.

Michael Hyman said "we are in a generation where rising real interest rates will be at the forefront of investors' minds and with the support of IAM, River Plate House is poised to take advantage of opportunities in the global government fixed income markets that have not been available for a long time".

Victor Koloshuk, Chairman, President & CEO of IAM, said "The timing of the launch of River Plate House is ideal as pension funds re-focus on real rates of return and LDI, and insurance companies seek to contain longevity risk and achieve more effective asset / liability matching."
