Digital Assets


AIMA serves as the global voice of the alternative investment management industry in the digital assets space.

AIMA members are increasingly looking at how digital assets may be incorporated into existing and new strategies. Members and the broader investment management industry are also looking closely at the potential opportunities and economic cases for incorporating various distributed ledger technologies (DLT) into their operational processes and how it may be used by markets, post-trade institutions, administrators, custodians and other service providers to create cost-efficiencies, enhance transparency and reduce risk.

AIMA’s work in digital assets is overseen by our global Digital Assets Working Group (AIMA DAWG).  The AIMA DAWG is a cross-section of senior industry experts including fund managers, allocators, custodians, exchanges, lawyers, consultants and other service providers. The group is tasked with driving AIMA’s regulatory engagement, thought-leadership initiatives and operational guidance in the area of digital assets.

AIMA has also set up digital assets sub-groups on taxation, regulation, operational due diligence, and cybersecurity.
