MEDIA RELEASE: In Recognition of Asset Management Council Volunteers

Unsung heroes! Assets of the Asset Management Council! Whatever the description, there is no doubt that Asset Management Council volunteers are leaders of industry, who volunteer their time to enrich the services and products of the Asset Management Council, for the benefit of the greater asset management community.

Findings from a recent 2014 Stakeholder Survey showed the importance of volunteers and clear evidence from the asset management community for continued access to good quality information.
