In September 2011 Troika Dialog, then the largest independent investment bank in Russia & CIS, Baker Botts, a leading international law firm and three investment professionals formally established our Association which was duly registered as a non-profit partnership in December 2011. This initiative was a culmination of a series of meetings and discussions among local market participants who shared the same vision and interest in the long-term development of the Russian private equity & venture capital industry. Subsequently a number of local GPs and service providers joined NAIMA. Over the years it expanded into other alternative sub-asset classes, incl. hedge funds and real estate.

Today, we are a leading trade body advocating for the growth of entire spectrum of alternative investments in Russia and representing both local and international investment funds, development finance institutions, legal and tax specialists, family offices and high net worth individuals.
