The AIA is Australia’s leading non-profit organisation providing assistance to its members to make improved investment decisions in all asset classes.

The AIA represents and advocates for a group of self-directed investors who choose to make their own decisions about their investments. Many of our members certainly utilize the skills of professionals such as financial planners, accountants and lawyers to assist them, but they strive to educate themselves to be better informed about key decisions affecting their financial future.

The AIA provides members with a smorgasbord of education, ideas and strategies for investors to consider as they make financial decisions in the context of their own goals, skills, resources and risk profile. The AIA does not hold a licence to provide financial advice and does not endorse or recommend any specific strategy or financial product.

As a community of self-directed investors the AIA provides many opportunities to network with other members, many of whom have considerable experience and success in investing over many years. Our motto is: “Investors helping investors”.

Regardless of your age or your present level of wealth, if you wish to improve your investment skills, the AIA can help you with education and information to make better investment decisions.

Every year I attend the Australian Investor Association's Gold Coast conference. For a busy bloke who has sworn never to be ''taken for a mug'' after once being presented with a coffee cup in return for giving a presentation on a weekend, it may come as some surprise - it surprises me - that I take the time to spend four days in the company of strangers.

“There are only a few organisations in the share market that the private investor can trust and perhaps unsurprisingly they all seem to be non-profit-making.  They include the AIA.”  This is an excerpt from Marcus Padley’s regular column featured on Saturday, 3 September 2011.

The Sharemarket Course DVD set

This 12 DVD and CD set includes approximately 13 hours of material, a CD with a workbook and activities and costs only $197 if a member of the AIA or $297 for a new member including the first year AIA subscription.  By doing this course you will learn about fundamental and technical analysis; understand and manage risk management; learn methods to control trade entry, trade management and trade exit; record keeping and more.  This is a unique learning tool produced by an independent association for investors
