Get involved

The NxtGenPlus mentoring scheme allows you to connect one-to-one with an experienced asset management professional in a relationship based on mutual trust and confidentiality.

Key benefits

  • Support with objectives: Take responsibility for your professional development by setting yourself goals under the guidance of your experienced mentor. With your mentor’s support, you will set the agenda and shape your mentoring sessions according to your needs and interests. This relationship will last until you feel ready to continue at your own pace.
  • Reflect on your development: As you progress with your objectives, you will engage in reflective learning which you can discuss with your mentor to consider what is working and how to move forward.
  • Receive valuable feedback: Your mentor will provide valuable feedback and advice from a position of experience and knowledge. You’ll benefit from this guidance by being receptive and willing to discuss your weaknesses alongside your strengths; this is how you can make significant improvements to your practice.

Mentee application form

Once your application has been received, we aim to respond within ten working days. If your application is successful, you will be matched with a mentor and will receive a guide on getting the most from your mentor/mentee relationship. We make matches based on geography and try not to match any competing organisations. If you are assigned a mentor that may represent a conflict of interests please contact our mentoring team at Mentoring@theIAM.org and we will find another suitable match. The mentoring scheme is continually reviewed based on your feedback.
