Clich here for replay

AIMA invites you to join this webinar on Thursday, 29 October for the launch of the newest editions of two AIMA Guides to Sound Practices, each produced with the support of experienced member volunteers.

Covid-19, mass protests and wildfires have been among the numerous unusual challenges investment managers have had to contend with in the last 18 months.  These events have caused investment managers, investors, regulators and the media to focus more intently than ever on the day-to-day operational risk management (‘ORM’) and business continuity management (‘BCM’) processes and controls employed by asset managers.  Over the last 12 months AIMA volunteers have been working on the timely updates to the AIMA Guide to Sound Practices for Operational Risk Management and the AIMA Guide to Sound Practices for Business Continuity Management.
