The Investment Association


The Investment Association represents UK investment managers. We have over 200 members who manage more than £5 trillion for clients around the world. Our aim is to make investment better for clients so they achieve their financial goals, better for companies so they get the capital they need to grow, and better for the economy so that everyone prospers.

We cover every link in the investment chain:

  • We work with investors, helping them to understand the industry and the options available to them. We know investing can seem daunting, so we work hard to make it clear and accessible.
  • We work with investment managers, promoting high standards and the need to put clients first. Our work includes helping members to manage money efficiently and communicate effectively.
  • We work with the companies we invest in, helping them to achieve better long-term results and, ultimately, greater returns for investors and the economy.
  • We work with regulators and governments around the world. We’ve built close, trusting relationships with these bodies and play an active role in shaping the rules that govern the industry.

The Investment Association’s purpose is to ensure that investment managers are in the best possible position to help people build resilience to financial adversity, achieve their financial objectives and maintain a decent standard of living as they get older. It is also to help investment managers maximise their contribution to economic growth through the efficient allocation of capital.
