Our Objectives

Developing the Funds Industry in Ireland

The objective of the Irish Funds Industry Association (Irish Funds) is to support, complement and develop the funds industry in Ireland. 

The Voice of the Funds Industry

Irish Funds represents the industry in discussions with Government, its departments / agencies and the Central Bank of Ireland to ensure that the environment and infrastructure available can support the continued development and growth of the industry.

An Information Resource for the International Funds Industry

Through the development of industry policy, guidance papers, technical briefings and the output of our working groups, we assist in the defining of practice across a range of complex areas such as compliance, valuation, accounting, share dealing and registration. The partnership between members ensures that a full range of perspectives and insights are represented in the formulation of guidance papers. In doing so, we provide a valuable service in generating and disseminating information in an effective and complete way. View Publications & Media.
