Mission and Vision
NICSA is a not-for-profit trade association that connects global asset management industry participants in order to develop, share, and advance leading practices.
For over fifty years, the Association has offered a collective, timely view on evolving themes shaping the financial services industry. Deep expertise and unique perspectives come together in an open and collaborative environment to tackle the strategic implementation of the industry’s most vital issues.
Our goal is to help asset management firms and financial service providers meet the changing needs of their clients and our industry by aligning and educating industry participants through:
• Formal education programs that provide collaborative insights from diverse perspectives
• Interactive forums that allow members to exchange ideas and business solutions

We seek to provide industry executives the tools to gain industry knowledge and make informed decisions about strategic business development and best practice implementation. In addition, NICSA provides the opportunity for individuals to develop professional leadership skills and make a meaningful impact on the industry we serve via committee volunteer work.
NICSA was founded in 1962 as an informal forum for operations and shareholder service professionals in the mutual fund industry, under the name National Investment Company Service Association.
Richard L. Casey of State Street Bank & Trust Company in Boston was its founder and first president. Edward D. Windsor of Fidelity Fund (now Fidelity Investments) served as its first secretary, while John R. Vaughn, Jr. of Old Colony Trust Company (now part of the Columbia Management family of funds) was its first Treasurer.
