IAIM works with key public and private sector stakeholders on the development of national and international policy. We are committed to responsible and reasonable dialogue with all parties.
IAIM is actively engaged with the Departments of Finance (DoF) and of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP) and with other industry bodies in shaping the future of the pensions industry in the light of government’s intention to introduce auto-enrolment and to reform the suite of existing products already on offer within the industry.
IAIM works with the IFS Ireland Network, Skillnets and the Central Bank of Ireland to ensure the availability and quality of personnel. The association supports initiatives to facilitate the development of high-level skills particularly by:
- supporting professional skills development
- third-level programmes
- promoting tax policy initiatives to attract and retain talent
- encouraging students to pursue a career in the area.
Association members are committed to promoting responsible best practices. The association is working to develop an understanding and to promote sustainable investment across the industry. The emphasis will be on a) decarbonising the economy b) promoting investment into clean/green infrastructure and c) promoting good ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) behaviour of investee companies within portfolios.
IAIM supports the achievement of a credible, responsible and proportionate regulatory regime that is aligned with international best practice.
The regulatory and business environment for investment management is increasingly set through EU institutions. The association works with national and international stakeholders, including international trade associations, to represent the interests of the industry on EU issues and to ensure that members are fully informed of new developments. We engage, on a continuous basis, with the Central Bank of Ireland (The Regulator) on a range of issues, domestic and European generated, that determine the shape of our industry.
