AIMA Canada publishes new AIMA Canada handbook

Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: AIMA Canada, the Canada National Group of the Alternative Investment Management Association, the global hedge fund industry association, today released the AIMA Canada Handbook 2012 covering all aspects of the Canadian hedge fund industry.

The 106-page Handbook was compiled by AIMA Canada over the past year. Development of the Handbook was overseen by a team of senior AIMA Canada committee members. Content was provided by a selection of the 35 AIMA Canada service providermembers, including accountants, lawyers and prime brokers with extensive knowledge of their areas of expertise.

The Handbook contains an overview of the Canadian hedge fund industry, background on AIMA Canada, as well as essays on the stability of Canadian banks and fund administration for the global hedge fund industry. And, for the benefit of the international investment community, it also profiles Canada’s major financial centres and includes sections on regulation, compliance and structuring, and raising capital.

“A key purpose of the Handbook is to remind international investors about the depth of the Canadian hedge fund industry. Investors will be interested to know that Canada is home to more than 125 hedge fund management companies with over $30 billion in assets under management across a broad range of strategies,” said AIMA Canada COO, James Burron in launching the new Handbook.

The AIMA Canada handbook, which provides a comprehensive overview of the Canadian hedge fund landscape, its participants and service providers, is available free of charge in both hard copy (available direct from AIMA Canada or through its many members) and electronic format, the latter being available via AIMA Canada’s website at: http://aima-canada.org
