Alternative Investment Management Association Representing alternative asset managers globally
Founded in 1990, we are the global hedge fund industry organisation that represents the interests of the whole industry - including hedge fund managers, fund of hedge fund managers, prime brokers, legal and accounting firms, investors, fund administrators and independent fund directors – around the world.
We are the destination of choice for firms and institutions that want joined-up global viewpoints.
The most valued service that we provide to you is making your voice heard by policymakers, regulators and the media.
AIMA has developed long-standing relationships with key global authorities.
With our public affairs work on the ground in Brussels, the UK, the United States and Asia we are able to engage in extensive advocacy in the best interests of the hedge fund industry.
We respond to regulatory and policy consultation papers on your behalf - incorporating your comments and making your views heard.
AIMA has an outstanding reputation and strong alliances. Our work has been endorsed by the G20, FSB, IOSCO, PWG, MFA and HFSB and is quoted in many major reports.
Hosting regular media/industry engagement events, we maintain our strong relationships with the media, resulting in more accurate and informed reporting on the industry.
With a specialised regulatory and tax department, we are able to provide you with guidance notes on complex initiatives, detailing how developments may affect your business and taking the appropriate action on your behalf.
Online resources at AIMA’s website are at your disposal: from members lists and useful websites to guidance notes and frequent policy and regulatory updates.
Members seeking to obtain our industry-standard due diligence questionnaires will be able to receive them via the website and those seeking to establish new businesses in the industry will be able to make use of an enquiry service to key service providers.
Our members benefit from weekly news emails, providing a round-up of news from around the world and details of upcoming events and special member discounts, and the AIMA Journal, our flagship quarterly magazine.
Our Annual Conference attracts leading speakers from the industry and among policymakers, and hundreds of delegates, from around the world.
You can get involved – either by joining one of our committees or working groups or taking part in one of our many events.
