About us

Australian Shareholders' Association (ASA) is Australia's largest independent not-for-profit, shareholder association and has representation in all states of Australia. Founded in 1960, the organisation is driven by its mission to be the voice of retail shareholders through educating investors and standing up for shareholder rights.

ASA is funded entirely by membership subscription, donation and sponsorship and independently represents its members through providing independent resources and proactive advocacy. ASA safeguards shareholder interests in Australian equity capital markets, helps its members to improve investment knowledge and fosters a connected retail investor community.

Members are also supported through member meetings, discussion groups, weekly webinars, conferences, workshops, and ASA’s monthly Equity magazine.

The thriving investment community ASA provides includes access to investment managers, CEOs and thought-leaders, professional educators and like-minded investors. ASA protects the rights of its retail investor members and makes their vote count and is committed to keeping the market fair for the everyday, independent investor, championing the rights of Australian shareholders and supporting its valued members on their investment journey.
