Investment Analysts Society of South Africa (NPC)

The IAS is a non-profit making body and was registered in 1968 as an “association not for gain”. We function as a liaison body for the investment analysts profession.

The IAS currently has 1800 members drawn from all walks of the analysts profession including Investment Banks and Houses, Fund Managers, Brokers, Insurance Companies, pension Funds, etc. In order to qualify for membership applicants must be employed in the field of investment analysis and must have either a post graduate business qualification or at least 3 years experience as an investment analyst.

We adopted a “Code of Good Practice”, a copy of which is presented on this website for your information.

Each year, the IAS promotes a prestigious awards ceremony in recognition of the skills of those listed companies who win the award for “Best Communicating and Reporting”.
