ICMA is one of the few trade associations globally that includes both buy-side and sell-side representation. ICMA’s buy-side members include asset managers, institutional investors, private banks, pension funds and insurance companies, among others.
In addition to buy-side members being engaged across the work and committees of the association, ICMA has a dedicated Asset Management and Investors Council (AMIC) which was established in 2008 to represent the views of and add value to its buy-side members by discussing investment issues of common interest, reaching a consensus and recommending any action that ICMA should take. The AMIC, among its activities, organises virtual events, quarterly Executive Committee meetings and manages subcommittees/working groups.
The AMIC Executive Committee comprises of co-opted members of AMIC, and the chairs of the permanent working groups. It meets quarterly to discuss regulatory and market topics of interest to the buyside. The AMIC Secretariat manages several working groups. The AMIC exclusively invites buy-side only members to its various sub-committees/working groups.
