ASIF (Asian Securities and Investments Federation)

ASIF was first formed by a group of dedicated securities analysts in 1979 under the name of ASAC (Asian Securities Analysts Council), which was incorporated and renamed ASAF (Asian Securities Analysts Federation) in 1995. To reflect the change in career interest in securities research and investment as well as to accommodate a broader membership, the federation adopted its present name in 2008. The stronger representation at the regional and global level will help promote the exchange of views and constructive dialogue among practitioners, professional associations, and regulators within the region.
