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.
