Dear Members,

We hope you had a good summer break to recharge and gear up for the rest of the year! We are writing to touch base on important matters and updates.

AIAM has been striving to organise better quality events and networking for all to thrive. Members need to get actively involved.

As EAMs, we juggle many things at the same time. Running an entrepreneurial business, keeping up with banking trends, ensuring client needs are always met, and coming together as an industry must also be on the top of our list.

It is not only to share a good glass of wine, but to also exchange knowledge and increase our professional know-how. From time to time, we learn from one another.

We ought to keep up with this engagement. One step at a time, we can foster yearly highlights for all to remember.

Be part of the action!
