The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) is opening a new office in Washington, DC. The office, which opens this week, will support the association’s growing membership and government affairs work in the United States.

The DC location expands AIMA’s existing US footprint and complements the association’s regional headquarters in New York. It will allow AIMA to deepen relationships with local regulators and work collaboratively with other industry bodies on behalf of the alternative investment industry. The additional resources will also facilitate the expansion of local committees, peer networks other practical tools for members in the US.
Jiri Krol, Deputy CEO of AIMA and its Global Head of Government Affairs, will relocate to lead the Washington, DC office. He will continue to maintain his responsibilities, including overseeing policy and regulatory engagement in Europe and APAC. In addition, Jiri will take on the position of Global Head of the Alternative Credit Council (ACC), AIMA’s private credit affiliate and the leading representative of the private credit industry. Jiri will work closely with Michelle Noyes, Head of AIMA Americas, in deepening our services to US AIMA and ACC members.
AIMA CEO Jack Inglis (pictured) says: “The US is by far the largest alternatives market in the world. Over USD1trilllion – more than half of our manager members’ assets – are managed by firms headquartered in the US. It is also the world’s largest private credit market, where many of our ACC members are headquartered.”
“We believe this opening will deliver excellent support to members and build on the success that our Americas offices, led by Michelle Noyes, have already achieved.”
“Jiri has led our government and regulatory affairs work during a period of intense change in the global landscape. He will continue to lead this global effort and provide important support to our many members in the Americas, where we continue to grow. He will work closely with me, as our Deputy CEO, on all our strategic initiatives and lead the ACC at a time of rapid growth for private debt funds.”
AIMA Deputy CEO Jiri Krol says: “It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to participate in AIMA’s growth and success which is founded on a simple philosophy of being member-driven, collaborative, and entrepreneurial. I look forward to working with members and colleagues to expand our offering in the Americas and to strengthen the voice of the alternatives industry in government and among key stakeholders, especially the investor community. To do so, I hope we can grow our ties with all the existing associations and who are active in this space.”
