At the SBAI, we partner with leading organisations in the financial industry, who support our mission of improving industry outcomes by advancing responsible practices, partnership and knowledge. We believe that we can achieve the best results by collaborating globally with like-minded organisations on education, industry resources, transparency tools and sharing knowledge.
The CAIA Association (the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association) is the global professional body dedicated to alternative investments. The missions of CAIA and the SBAI are strongly aligned, focusing on driving better standards and professionalism in the alternative investment industry. Areas for collaboration are education, industry resources and transparency tools on topics, including due diligence, ESG and culture & diversity.
SBAI Signatories and Investor Chapter Members are eligible to receive a 10% discount on CAIA's first-time exam fees.
The Financial Markets Standards Board (FMSB) is a practitioner led standard-setter for the wholesale financial markets. The FMSB and the SBAI both work with market participants in their respective areas to improve industry outcomes, complementing rules and regulation.
We have been involved with the FMSB since its formation in 2015 and supports its mission to improve transparency, fairness and effectiveness of global wholesale markets.
The International Forum of Sovereign Wealth Funds (IFSWF) is a global network of sovereign wealth funds and custodian of the Santiago Principles, which set out the Generally Accepted Principles and Practices (GAPP) for sovereign wealth funds and are voluntarily endorsed by all IFSWF members.
The IFSWF and the SBAI have established a Mutual Observer relationship to help ensure that SWFs are active participants in our activities and our standard-setting process. The Mutual Observer role will enable us to foster a constructive dialogue between alternative investment managers and SWFs, collaborate on issues of mutual interest, make our resources accessible to the SWF community and invite SWFs to take an active part in our process.
