The professional body for whole life management of physical assets


What we do and why we’re here...

The NxtGen is the IAM’s network for people who are new to asset management – students, graduates, people starting out their asset management career, professionals from other disciplines and anyone wishing to learn more about the subject.

The initiative was launched in June 2012 with the aim of growing the next generation of asset managers, by promoting awareness and understanding of the discipline, and to challenge the traditional school of thought.

We run regular informal events throughout the UK, including ‘Talk from the Top’ guest speaker events and social activities, which provide a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and discover what is happening in the world of asset management. View our 2015 Programme of Events

In addition to the NxtGen’s programme of events, the IAM has established a number of regional UK branches – open to all IAM members – which hold regional events. Email to find out what is taking place in your area and how you can get involved.

A large proportion of our members are based overseas and we are working on ways to make our activities accessible to everyone. We have started to publish footage from events on our website; see previous events. If you would like to run an event or establish a branch overseas, please get in touch via our contacts page and we will help you to do this.

Contribute to Assets magazine!

Recently completed some research or been involved in a project that might be of interest to the NxtGen community? Why not write an article for Assets magazine? This is a great way to share your work within the Asset Management community and will look good on your CV too! 

Primarily we are looking for honest stories about asset management implementation. Assets magazine is conversational, and we are looking for the story of asset management in asset intensive organisations: what prompted us to do this, what did we do, what were the outcomes and challenges, and what lessons did we learn. The more specific and tangible the story, the better. The Assets team will guide you through the process, and assist with editing and polishing your article. Assets is issued every quarter.

We are happy to accept articles from multiple contributors, if you would like to pair up with a colleague to co-author an article. Contact or for more information.
