What are the benefits of IIF membership?

  • Access to economic analysis and reporting on the key emerging and developed markets around the world. The IIF produces two monthly publications, the Global Economic Monitor and the Capital Markets Monitor, which analyze global economic and financial market developments; and the Daily Comment, which provides members with a succinct daily email briefing on the global economic outlook. We also recently introduced the Euro Briefing which is a publication designed to provide a comprehensive, but manageable survey of the Euro Area crisis and its likely evolution.
  • Members are eligible to accompany IIF staff on formal missions, and our economists and policy advisors are available for informal consultations at any time. They also brief members via teleconferences upon return from countries where developments are of broad interest.
  • Outstanding opportunities to network with IIF member firms and many of the emerging markets’ senior policymakers and regulatory authorities. Through a growing array of events, members can exchange views on a wide range of economic and financial topics. IIF Annual and Spring Membership meetings particularly bring together several hundred of the most senior representatives of our member firms to discuss current issues of concern to the global financial community. Members also receive invitations to local and regional events and discounts on IIF conferences.
  • For full members, invitations to participate in many of the over 20 working groups and activities groups the IIF has formed to explore industry consensus on regulatory and policy issues (including Basel II).

How much are membership dues?

Membership dues for full members are based on total assets. For Associate members, dues are based on the type of organization. If you are interested in joining the IIF, please fill out the membership information request form and a membership representative will contact you with specific dues information.

What are the steps to become a member of the Institute?
