Welcome to the Australian Investment Council

Everything you need to know about our new direction 

As the Australian Investment Council we are excited to launch, not only our new name and logo, but one that is backed up by a new strategic direction. 
We are now positioned to equip, lead and connect the private capital industry with reinvigorated purpose to support the success and strength of our industry into the future.
We will have a more prominent voice through front line policy and advocacy work, deliver market-leading knowledge and skills development programs and build transformative relationships within our community made up of private equity, venture capital and private credit funds, alongside institutional investors and leading financial, legal and operational advisers.




In the coming months, you’ll hear about the following new initiatives which are all designed to better connect and share knowledge in our community. 

A brand new suite of professional development programs 

It’s vital we lead the industry in equipping professionals to better understand our industry and our revitalised professional development program will do just that. These are currently being developed and we expect to launch the new Foundations of Private Capital Investment course, which will replace our PE and VC101 courses, in mid-2019. Further programs will be rolled-out in the remainder of 2019.

Events designed specifically for Emerging Leaders 

Understanding our role to lead our industry into the future, we are creating a series of events for our emerging leaders who have not had enough opportunity to engage with their peers in our community. Given there are various groups which make up our dynamic ecosystem, it’s important they connect for now and in their future careers. We expect to launch this program in June. 

Member Forum 
This member only forum will be a great way to interact with the Australian Investment Council on hot button issues, provide input on upcoming policy submissions and to give feedback on specific events and activities. This will be rolled out in the coming months and you will be notified by email when you have been invited to participate in a forum group. 

We’re looking forward to the journey we’ll take as an industry and a big part of that is your experience as a member.  From now, the new home for the latest insights, industry news and stories and events to connect our community, will all be found at aic.co
For more detailed information about the things which are a little different, we have prepared some FAQ's.
