The Asset Managers Forum (AMF) was formed in 1997 by securities processing professionals at major asset management firms. The forum was formed in response to a longstanding need on The Street, namely, the opportunity for buy side, sell side and custodian bank professionals to jointly pursue the development of industry-wide processing and operations best practices, mutual challenges such as STP, fails and corporate actions, and development of processes for new products such as OTC derivatives.[1]

In 2006, the AMF Corporate Actions Committee recommended industry guidelines in order to reduce operational, financial and reputation risk related to corporate actions processing.
