US – Membership of the Association for Investment Management and Research (AIMR), the world’s largest association of investment professionals, has exceeded the 50,000 mark.

AIMR was formed 11 years ago and has members in 101 countries and has seen growth in its membership numbers as a result of increasing interest shown in its chartered financial analyst education programme and the globalisation of the investment industry.

AIMR has offices in Charlottesville, Hong Kong and will open another soon in London.
