This is an exciting time
to be an Asian American investor.

For AAAIM's 4th national event, we are delighted and honored to host a distinguished set of speakers and institutional investors in Washington, D.C. While the U.S. embarks on a strengthening recovery thereby generating opportunities closer to home, our cultural ties serve as a platform for accessing Asian capital and investment opportunities. With Washington as a backdrop, the event highlights influential political players you need to know. Capital, politics and the movers and shakers: this event has it all.

What is different this year:

AAAIM is promoting and educating members and conference participants about the tremendous opportunities being offered by the national financial institutions to enhance diversity participation as a result of the Financial Reform Act that was passed in 2010.

Whether you are an emerging talent or have fully emerged, whether you work for someone else today and have dreams of coming out on your own tomorrow, and especially if you think you are the height of your career, join us for an event that promises expand your knowledge, network and horizons.

Why Washington Matters:

A year since the sweeping Dodd-Frank bill was signed into law, the investment business has experienced reverberations in transparency requirements, regulation and increased oversight. While many managers view this as an increased cost of doing business, we may look back on Dodd-Frank as an important and innovative change in the financial services industry. What is the report card for Dodd Frank? What are some of the pending changes you MUST know? Meet and question the people who make the rules.

The National Press Club: A Washington Institution

The National Press Club, a private club for journalists and communications professionals, has been a Washington institution for more than a century. It is also a world-class conference and meeting facility that hosts thousands of events each year for sophisticated clients from around the globe.
