The AFA Investment Fund exists to manage and grow the assets of the AFA which are surplus to operating requirements on a year by year basis. Investment decisions will be made with emphasis towards preservation of capital.  This approach aligns to the purpose of the Fund, being to secure the financial future of the Association for its current and future members. The AFA Investment Fund is a trust. The Association of Financial Advisers is the sole beneficiary of the investment fund and the Investment Fund Board, as the corporate trustee, will at all times act in the best interests of the AFA and its members over the long term. The Board of the AFA Investment Fund is comprised of seven directors, with one representing each of the Australian states, and one as a representative of the AFA.
