COVID-19 Coronavirus and IAM activities

The IAM has been following the recommendations made by the World Health Organization (WHO) and considering our response. This announcement is to provide clarity and more certainty for everyone involved for the coming months.

Our first concern is the health and wellbeing of our Members, staff and customers in the Asset Management community.

The situation is rapidly evolving, and the WHO now characterizes COVID-19 as a pandemic. Travel bans, restrictions and social distancing measures continue to expand globally. This will impact the IAM’s events and other work everywhere.

In light of the above, we have decided that until further notice all IAM events, technical projects and other activities should be held electronically or postponed. The extension of these measures will be reviewed and communicated as necessary. We are contacting everyone who has already booked events so if you do not hear from us, please let us know.

We have business continuity plans in place and hope to operate as normally as possible through this period. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you informed. Please contact the Office as usual if you wish to know more or need support for electronic events.

We realise that this is disappointing for many of our loyal volunteers and Members, but we know you will understand the reasons behind our decisions.

Our thoughts are with those people who are affected by this disease and we recognise and thank everyone around the world who continues to work and support their communities. We look forward to a time when we can, once again share, learn and network in person.
