    Goals / Remit

    The UK investment management industry plays a major role in the economy, helping millions of individuals and families achieve their life goals by helping grow their investments (mainly through workplace pensions). In fact, 75% of UK households use an investment manager’s services (knowingly or unknowingly). The industry also invests billions of pounds in companies and the financing of transport networks, hospitals, schools and housing projects. The industry supports 115,000 jobs in the UK, including over 14,000 in Scotland. It’s the largest industry of its kind in Europe, and the second largest in the world, after America.

    Our members range from small, independent UK investment firms to Europe-wide and global players. Collectively, they manage over £10 trillion of assets on behalf of their clients in the UK and around the world. We act as their voice and represent their interests to policymakers and regulators, (...)

    Main EU files targeted

    All dossiers relating to investment management, whether via funds (e.g. UCITS) or for institutions such as insurers and pension schemes, and covering related matters including tax, accounting and disclosure and investor protection as it relates to these and all other investment products. Equally, we track developments such as MiFIR, touching on the wholesale markets that investment management makes accessible to customers, together with related issues such as operations and prevention of market abuse. In addition, The IA follows EU work on risk and risk management, including the systemic risks posed by institutions such as CCPs (clearing houses) as well as banks.

    Although strictly not an EU “initiative”, we have decided to include our work in relation to “Brexit” also.

    Communication activities

    We assist members in implementing EU legislation and host or sponsor occasional events in London and Brussels, such as conferences, to which EU officials, policy makers and MEPs and staff may be invited.

    Other activities

    The IA works to promote a legal, tax and regulatory environment which makes investment better, in the UK, Europe and internationally. Better for clients of investment managers, so they achieve their financial goals. Better for companies, so they get the capital they need to grow. Better for the economy, so the country prospers.
    In Europe we work to help the EU’s policy agenda, where the asset management industry can play a part. For example, we seek to maximise the potential for the Capital Markets Union initiatives.
