New to asset management?

Come together with other new asset management professionals to learn, share and network.

If you've recently started your asset management career, whether from another discipline, as a student or as a graduate, the IAM provides opportunities for new asset management professionals to learn, share and network through its NxtGen initiative.

NxtGen: Is it for me?

IAM NxtGen is aimed at anyone who is new to asset management – that includes individuals starting out in their asset management careers, people in related roles and those wishing to learn more about the subject, as well as students and graduates. Our members typically have less than 3 years’ professional or academic experience in asset management.

NxtGen is a lively, proactive community of professionals who are new to asset management with a great enthusiasm for the discipline. Whether a student, graduate or professional from another discipline, IAM NxtGen members beginning an asset management career come together to learn, develop their careers, share experiences and meet others in the industry.
