About the Investment Company Institute

The Investment Company Institute (ICI) is the national association of U.S. investment companies, including mutual funds, closed-end funds, exchange-traded funds, and unit investment trusts. Membership in ICI is available to any SEC-registered investment company (open-end or closed-end), its investment adviser, and its underwriter. ICIís mutual fund members serve nearly 90 million individual shareholders and manage approximately $8 trillion in investor assets.

Since its founding in 1940, ICIís mission has embraced three objectives:

  • encouraging adherence to high ethical standards by all industry participants,
  • advancing the interests of funds, their shareholders, directors, and investment advisers, and
  • promoting public understanding of mutual funds and other investment companies.
