AIF is dedicated to connecting Armenian financial professionals and creating an integrated community from which all members benefit.
New comers in our industry seek mentors, while senior delegates look for new business partnerships, investors and investments. Our mission goes beyond standard networking, and over the recent years, the network has grown to include members working across the broader industry and around the world, connecting us with one another and our common Armenian roots.
Our last event, in November 2017 gathered over 150 Armenian delegates and friends of Armenia, working across more than 20 countries. In addition to an extended networking session, members enjoyed keynote addresses and forums featuring Pierre Gurdjian, Gagik Apkarian, Anoush Simonyan and Arnaud Attamian, amongst others.
Our Summer 2018 event will consist of a workshop and summer gala dinner, to be held at 8 Northumberland Avenue on 14th July 2018. The workshop will last approximately 4 hours, and will feature keynote speakers, forums and a light meal. The focus will be on themes relevant to the financial sector, with a specific focus on how finance interacts with Armenia today, as well as on the future of the Armenian community within the industry. After a short interlude, this will be followed by a Drinks Reception and Gala Dinner.
