AUM at September 30, 2010 were relatively unchanged from fiscal 2009. Private Corporate Debt and Real Estate Asset Management were active in deploying outstanding commitments in their funds during fiscal 2010 and did not close any new funds in the fiscal year.

Subsequent to the fiscal year end, in October 2010, Private Corporate Debt announced the closing of a new fund with total commitments of $275 million. In November 2010, the Corporation announced the launch of a new real estate fund targeted to raise between $150 million and $200 million with the first close expected in March 2011.

Performance fees of $4.8 million were realized in fiscal 2010; the majority of which were in Real Estate Asset Management. In fiscal 2009, performance fees of $0.3 million were realized, the majority of which were in the Managed Futures operations. The Corporation expects to realize a scheduled performance fee in fiscal 2011 from Real Estate Asset Management and performance fees in Retail Alternative Assets which have the potential for a significant contribution to earnings in fiscal 2011.

In September 2010, the Corporation announced the reinstatement of a regular cash dividend and a dividend of $0.04 per common share was paid in October 2010.

Victor Koloshuk, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IAM said "While Retail Alternative Investments still face challenges in building AUM back to the levels of 2007 and 2008, we are making progress in both retail and institutional businesses. This year, Real Estate Asset Management and Private Corporate Debt are well positioned to grow further. Also this year, we acquired the Northern Rivers group of funds to add to our retail product offering and, in September 2010, we announced the launch of River Plate House Capital Management Inc., our global government bond long/short investment strategies asset management company".
