Mission: The Active Investment Company Alliance (AICA) will be the premier 501(c)(6) non-profit trade association for listed closed-end funds, business development companies, interval and tender offer funds. Membership will be broad-based globally across fund sponsors (member firm who manages a closed-ended management company, BDC or equivalent), or product sponsors (member firm who manages an investment product: open-end, UIT, ETF, CEF, SMA, LP where the underlying investments are focused on closed-ended management companies, BDC or equivalent).

We will work to engage, educate, connect and offer transparency for investment professionals and investors; seek to gain better advocacy and guidance from regulators to protect investors and to support quality fund managers and sponsors.

Vision: High quality staff, events, and content, creating rich and meaningful investor engagement to meet the needs of the CEF / BDCs / iCEF ecosystem.

* Regular articles, podcasts, videos, webinars, live events and conferences
* Educate Individual and Investment Professionals on CEFs, BDCs / Non-listed funds to increase demand and use
* Unify and maintain consistent standards for data reporting
* Stabilize the shareholder-base of US Funds like UK for listed CEFs
* Model the success of trade associations like the AIC in London and NAREIT in the US
* Maintain a high level of transparency within the organization by providing members with detailed financial reports semiannually
