About the IIMI
The Independent Investment Management Initiative is a think tank that offers an independent, expert voice in the debate over the future of financial regulation.
Founded in 2010 as New City Initiative and relaunched as IIMI in 2021, IIMI counts amongst its members some of the leading independent asset management firms in the City and the continent. IIMI gives a voice to independent, owner-managed firms that are entirely focused on and aligned with the interests of their clients and investors.
Over the last decade, an old fashioned “client-centric” approach has enabled entrepreneurial firms in the Square Mile and beyond to emerge as a growing force in a financial industry dominated by global financial giants. Now, more so than ever, these firms play a key role in preserving the stability and long-term focus of the financial sector, which is of benefit to society at large. Today IIMI is comprised of 43 leading independent asset management firms from the UK and the Continent, managing approximately £500 billion and employing several thousand people.
- To serve as an independent, expert voice in the debate over financial reform;
- To restore society’s trust in the financial sector;
- To promote the values and practices of owner-managed firms which align their interests with those of their clients; and
- To raise awareness of the positive, stabilising contribution small entrepreneurial firms make to the economy and society as a whole.
