Investment Discussion & Special Interest Groups


Investment discussion group (IDG) meetings are organised by many A.I.R branches. These IDG meetings are usually held separate to the regular branch meeting.

These groups are attended by members with special interest in investment information or who might be managing their own investments.

Discussions topics can include current investment issues, various asset classes or member experiences.  Presentations are usually given by local financial advisors, investment specialists or group members.


Special interest groups (SIG) serve the needs of particular membership cohorts. Specific issues and matters of interest to members of each group are circulated to group members. Members can belong to more than one special interest group.

To be attached to a special interest group you must be an A.I.R. member with email access.
