“Our overarching value is to always seek the long-term client satisfaction and peace of mind for the clients we work with.”

Our Story

It all started with an optimistic dream that asset management can be run cohesively, with long term goals while, at the same time, daring to be human and enjoyable. A group of experienced bankers set out on a journey to change the ways of traditional asset management. Saying good riddance to quick fixes and short-term goals pleasing only the CEO’s of banks, our Independent Asset Managers made a promise, that forever, they would stay accountable to their clients only.

IAM.ASIA, short for Independent Asset Managers, was born in 2020, with the strong belief that the person is more important than the asset itself. Going beyond traditional asset management, IAM.ASIA seeks to create value and to make things simple for their clients to decide and act according to their needs and requirements.

At the same time, IAM.ASIA allows Independent Asset Managers across the world to join their platform, to benefit from their network and to share practices, so that all asset managers can help their clients the best way possible.
