ICMA is one of the few trade associations with a European focus that has both buy-side and sell-side representation.

To reflect the growing importance of the buy-side in the marketplace in general and add substance to ICMA output to public authorities, ICMA decided in 2008 to set up the Asset Management and Investors Council (AMIC). The Council was established to represent the views of and add value to the buy-side members of ICMA by discussing investment issues of common interest, reaching a consensus and recommending any action that ICMA should take. The AMIC is a fully structured Council encompassing 230 contacts. The AMIC now organises biannual conferences, quarterly Executive Committee meetings and manages subcommittees/working groups.

Covered bonds

Specific regulatory issues


Current regulatory and market priorities of the ICMA Asset Management and Investors Council include fund liquidity, covered bonds and securitisation.  

The AMIC is the only independent voice for the buy-side within ICMA, and the most representative in terms of numbers. However, buy-side members are also welcome to be involved in other ICMA activities that have traditionally only involved the sell-side.

A weekly market and regulatory update is sent to AMIC contacts, sign up to the mailing list.
