“An excellent opportunity to gain further experience of financial services regulation”
AIMA is a global membership organisation for the alternative investment industry. In 2016 AIMA established the Alternative Credit Council (ACC) to specifically represent private credit managers and support the sustainable development of this growing part of the financial sector. The ACC is the sole global trade association representing the interests of private credit and non-bank finance providers within the asset management sector. Our membership base has grown strongly over the last 5 years, in line with the growth of this sector more generally, making for an exciting and stimulating working environment.
