The Association of International Wealth Management AIWM is a non-profit association established to encourage, promote and strengthen global education in the private banking industry and to set a globally recognised standard for the qualification of private banking professionals. Private banking/wealth management is a fast growing and increasingly global industry. Serving today’s wealth owners requires a thorough understanding of their individual needs and of the tools that can be applied to meet these needs. The Association of International Wealth Management was established to respond to the growing demand for sophisticated products and professional client service, to identify and meet the needs of wealth owners, and to assist in navigating the increasing regulation and general complexities of globalised financial markets. The AIWM awards the Certified International Wealth Manager Diploma (CIWM®) and offers private banking professionals a platform for high-quality education, knowhow transfer and international networking. The Association was founded in 2007 by AZEK, the training centre of the Swiss Financial Analysts Association. The SFAA was established in 1962 and now has more than 2,800 members including financial and investment fund analysts, asset managers, wealth managers and fund managers. Based in Switzerland, with its Head Office located in Zurich, the AIWM operates on a global scale.
