CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 3, 2013) - Mawer Investment Management Ltd. is pleased to announce that it is expanding its global presence to include a location in Singapore as of August 2013.

The Singapore location is a continuation of the Firm's focus on world class global equity management. While Mawer has been investing successfully on a global basis for over 30 years, the Firm believes this endeavour will meaningfully enhance its ability to do so by providing a much greater understanding of the Asian region in general. It will also enable more direct access to companies for research, monitoring and meeting purposes, and allow the Firm to have 24-hour coverage of global events.

Peter Lampert, an international equity analyst who has been with the Firm for five years, will be relocating from Mawer's Calgary location to Singapore. His focus will be exclusively on research.

Mawer is very excited about this new chapter in its evolution and looks forward to the benefits it will bring to clients.
