Claire Van Wyk-Allan of The Alternative Investment Management Association is part of this year's Wealth Professional Canada's Hot List.
Head of Canada
THE ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION
As alternative investments grow worldwide, so too does the scope of the Alternative Investment Management Association. AIMA has members in more than 60 countries, including Canada, and leading its operation here is Claire Van Wyk-Allan. Replacing the outgoing James Burron, Van Wyk-Allan came into the role after serving as business development manager for advisor channel sales at RBC Global Asset Management, and she’s excited to see AIMA extend its reach in this country.
“The organization has made considerable strides in Canada in recent years, in terms of growing its events and membership, and building a highly effective advocacy and educational program,” Van Wyk-Allan said upon her appointment. “I look forward to building on those activities going forward.”
