AIBI is a voluntary association of Investment Bankers in the country. It was formed in 1990’s at the initiative of Indian Capital Markets regulatory body, SEBI. All Merchant Bankers, registered with SEBI are eligible to be members of AIBI. AIBI is India’s only association representing the investment banking industry.
On January 21, 2012 the name of the Association was changed to “Association of Investment Bankers of India” to encompass all the activities carried out by the Investment Bankers other than Issue Management. Currently, there are fifty seven members of the association.
AIBI-in a new direction: AIBI is now reinventing itself. AIBI strives to be an objective Industry body with a credible action plan. AIBI balances its role as an industry body with its role of an influencer so that there is never any conflict of interest for the members and ensure that its activities are not confined to selected few but are available and are beneficial to all members.
AIBI is represented, through its Chairman, on SEBI’s Primary Market Advisory Committee, a forum that provides an opportunity to present the industry’s viewpoint on various issues. In the last one year AIBI has made significant strides in enhancing its capabilities. We have been working closely with SEBI in the recent times in improving the efficiencies of the Indian Capital Markets.
AIBI has a dedicated website (www.aibi.org.in) and plans to make this website content rich to showcase our industry.
