Strengthening its position as the world's largest association of investment professionals, the Association for Investment Management and Research (AIMR) has zoomed past the 50,000-member milestone.
Demand for the organisation's chartered financial analyst curriculum and examination program and the globalisation of the investment industry have ignited the growth of the organisation, which now has members in 101 countries and territories.
AIMR's president and CEO, Thomas Bowman, said: Anyone with an interest in efficient, fair and transparent markets can be encouraged by the growth in AIMR membership.”
Every single AIMR member must abide by the AIMR code of ethics and standards of professional conduct, which require us to put the best interests of our investing clients above our own.
All 50,000 members are required every year to affirmatively restate that commitment and to disclose any formal professional complaints that have been filed against them. “
* The AIMR is creating two sub-committees from its task force on analyst objectivity. One will create a new set of research standards while the other will do a series of case studies. The task force aims to examine the inherent conflicts of sellside research.
