Founded in 2015 by a group of investment managers, the Guild was created to combine the benefits of a modern, diverse and dynamic network organisation with the traditions of the livery world.
Furthermore, it provides the means for asset management professionals to engage more deeply with each other, increase wider understanding of the industry and contribute positively to society through associated charity.
The Guild is run by working and retired members of the investment management community, who each volunteer their time to help build an organisation which makes a long-lasting contribution to the personal and professional development of current and future members of the profession.
Created by investment management professionals, for investment management professionals.
CREATED BY INVESTMENT MANAGERS, FOR INVESTMENT MANAGERS
We aim to create a powerful, lasting legacy that will continue to exist in the City of London long after we are gone.
Our Guild will allow the asset management industry to pass along values, wisdom, integrity, and business excellence from one generation to the next.
A SEAT AT THE TABLE
Our members will have the opportunity to join the ranks of Freemen, Liverymen and Aldermen, participating in the governance of the City of London and supporting the Lord Mayor.
Members will also enjoy participating in the pageantry and traditions that are part of Livery traditions.
TOGETHER WE STAND
Diversity & inclusion represents a significant challenge to our industry. We will be vocal campaigners for gender equality, and will seek to promote asset managers from LGBT, BAME and other communities to high profile roles within our ranks, and to help fight for increased representation at the highest levels of the industry.
