About AIA

The Australian Investors Association’s investment courses, discussion groups, national investors conferences, investment presentations, Investors Voice newsletter, AIA Investor Updates, and website provide the opportunity for members to connect and learn both from experts and each other’s experience.

Regardless of where, why and through which structure you invest, the AIA can help you develop the skills to take ownership of your financial future.

The AIA was formed in 1991 by a small group of investors who recognised there was a need for an organisation which could represent the interests of private investors across the broad spectrum of investment products available in the retail market. The Founding President was the late Austin Donnelly, author of many books on investing.
