Individual Membership

Individual Membership enables you to collaborate with other professionals in our global community. Through our best practice publications, knowledge development projects, qualifications, events and networking opportunities, you can enhance your professional knowledge, gain recognition and further your career. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to the development of asset management and promote good practice. 

You may wish to become a member simply because of an interest in asset management. Alternatively, you may be actively engaged in the profession and wish to gain and demonstrate competence through access to continuing professional development.

Grades of Membership

Depending on where you are on your asset management journey, you would normally initially join as an Associate (or Student, if applicable). As you gain knowledge and experience during your professional development, you can progress to higher grades of membership and become a Member, then a Fellow. Our Members and Fellows are also ‘Voting Members’ and, in effect, own the Institute.

Adherence to our Code of Conduct is a condition which applies to each grade of IAM membership.

If you are unsure about membership, you may wish to join as an Affiliate. This option gives you limited access to resources for 12 months free of charge.
