The Association of Solicitors in Investment Management (Asim) recently held a strategy meeting to draw up plans for the organisation and its members. Top of the agenda was the issue of how firms could increase the amounts of money being invested through their firms. A spokesperson said it was fairly easy for firms to get between £10m and £15m in investment funds from regular business. But she added that it was much more difficult to improve on this level. The meeting resolved to set up a workshop for firms who have that level of investment fund to help them increase their business. Future subjects on the agenda include the setting up of an internet site for the organisation.
