The National Association of Active Investment Managers or NAAIM was formed in 1989 as a non-profit association of registered investment advisors who provide active money management services to their clients, in order to produce favorable risk-adjusted returns as an alternative to more passive, buy and hold strategies. Originally called SAAFTI and comprised of a small group of successful, passionate firms, NAAIM has grown to include roughly 200 member firms nationwide, managing an estimated $14 billion. NAAIM's purpose is to promote the common interests of those investment advisors who provide active investment management services to clients.
NAAIM defines "active investment management services" as taking an active role in the ongoing process of investment selection and risk management with the objective of improving a portfolio's risk/reward relationship. The active management strategies used by our members are diverse, and utilize a broad range of securities including mutual funds, variable annuities, equity baskets, index-linked, exchange-traded securities, futures and other innovative products.
