The Alternative Investment Management Association, a hedge fund lobby group, has launched the AIMA Brazil Network.
The network will feature a series of networking events for AIMA Brazil members and guests, kicked off by a working lunch series in Sao Paulo, covering subjects such as fund regulation, shareholder activism, operational due diligence, AIFMD and international investments.
“There has been a tremendous appetite for AIMA’s networking events in Brazil, said Michelle Noyes, AIMA’s Brazil representative. “It’s very heartening that some key members of the Brazilian industry have already joined AIMA. We are liaising closely with the Brazilian industry, the Brazilian authorities and with the Brazilian trade body ANBIMA, whose work we very much support.”
AIMA has over 1,300 corporate members worldwide, based in over 40 countries. Members include hedge fund managers, fund of hedge funds managers, prime brokers, legal and accounting firms, investors, fund administrators and independent fund directors.
