Through an online voting portal, six C-Suites from local IAMs were elected to serve Singapore’s Independent Asset Management industry from 2018 to 2020.
Established in 2011 as a non-profit association, the Singapore Association of Independent Asset Managers (AIAM) has appointed a new committee at the recently concluded Annual General Meeting 2018. Through an online voting portal, six C-Suites from local IAMs were elected to serve Singapore’s Independent Asset Management (IAM) industry from 2018 to 2020.
The newly elected AIAM committee members are Steve Knabl, Chief Operating Officer and Managing Partner at Swiss-Asia Financial Services; Edwin Lee, Chief Executive Officer at Covenant Capital; Etienne Billaud, Senior Relationship Manager at SingAlliance, Lucie Hulme, Chief Executive Officer at TriLake Partners; Chiara Bartoletti, Chief Operating Officer at Oclaner Asset Management and Philipp Piaz, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Finaport.
President in November
The incoming President and roles of each committee member will be announced at the annual gala dinner on 22 November 2018.
«AIAM has come a long way since 2011. I look forward to having new members on the committee this year. This is a welcome change as we need fresh dynamics to rethink and reinvent our business. I am sure that these changes can better sustain our presence as the professional body for IAMs in Singapore, and reenergise the events calendar for our members,» outgoing AIAM President Steve Knabl said.
In this relatively new industry, AIAM facilitates regular, two way dialogues with the Monetary Authority of Singapore to relay information and direct IAMs in terms of regulation and best practices. The non-profit association also consolidates all members’ needs and group wise, develop and share important resources to help IAMs start and succeed in their business.
With IAMs coming together at AIAM, members are better equipped to face industry challenges. To date, there are over 70 ordinary and associate members from IAMs and service providers in Singapore.
Looking ahead, compliance matters, which spans from complex business practices and multi-jurisdictional regulations, become an integral part of wealth management. As a licensing requirement and operational obligation, IAMs, especially smaller firms, can better navigate regulatory challenges to ensure client advisory is done in the most professional manner with support from AIAM.
