Committees

Committees

Our committees are formed by different representatives from our member firms. They champion different agenda within the industry with regulators and policymakers, through activities like participation in forum discussions, closed door discussions. They also drive our IMAS Talks and Events, providing insights and timely updates on current topics in investment management. Details of each committee and their working groups can be found in the category below. 

The Development Committee pursues initiatives to address infrastructural gaps, improve industry practices, and provide further support for growth. Always forward looking, the Committee will be forming a China sub-committee and aims to enhance the Association’s support system for Chinese fund houses looking to join IMAS. 

Working Groups include:

The Digital Innovation Committee (DIC) advocates and promotes the adoption of digital technology and innovation within the asset management industry. One of the key programmes that DIC undertakes is the Digital Accelerator Programme (DAP), a platform which provides technology firms an opportunity to be mentored and rapidly commercialise their business ventures by working closely with leading fund houses and gain great exposure across the asset management industry. 

To pave the way forward for industry-wide digitalisation, the Committee seeks to forge partnerships with global key fintech centres to foster cross border collaborations; create a one-stop platform and digital ecosystem for fintechs and corporates to interact; showcase and identify technology solutions; and introduce curated digital skills training programmes to upskill the workforce. 

Promoting and enhancing professional capabilities within the asset management industry and education of investing public remains at heart for the IMAS Human Capital Committee.  

Previously known as the Education Committee, the Committee was renamed as the Human Capital Committee in 2020 to reflect its focus on initiatives that would help the industry upskill and reskill to meet challenges ahead, as well to enhance the education of the investing community in Singapore.
