About the IAM


IAM chapters are organized groups of IAM members from one country who provide an immediate interface for members to engage with the IAM on a local scale. Chapters organize local work, events, and other activities. They are a means of enabling members to act locally but think internationally as part of the IAM, sharing in and contributing to the success of our objectives.

Chapters are incorporated into the Institute as legal entities rather than a freestanding or separate activity or organization. Chapters are represented on the Council and all IAM committees.

Chapters may be established wherever existing members wish to associate to pursue the IAM’s Objectives, provided there are enough members in the area to make it viable in the long term.

Members are assigned to a chapter based on the country of their home address. If a chapter does not exist in their country, they are assigned to the Rest of the World. However, members can attend events run by any chapter, irrespective of their country of residence.



Branches are regional groups within a chapter that allow for the discussion of ideas and best practice on a more local level to develop a strong local network of like-minded professionals and advance the industry. Branches organize their own regional events and meetings. Unlike the chapters they belong to, branches are not legal entities, and their associated chapters are accountable for them.

Chapters and their branches will have various committees and project teams according to their numbers and interests.

Together, as an asset management community, we are making the world a better place. Become a member today!
