Welcome to the Association for Asian American Investment Manager’s (AAAIM) 2014 National Conference scheduled for October 7-8, 2014 in the heart of Silicon Valley! The annual AAAIM Conference is the premier industry event focused on supporting and engaging Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders throughout the investment industry.

Founded in 2006, AAAIM’s mission is to provide greater access and leadership mobility for Asian Americans in the world of investment management.
