WPiAM's Mission and Vision for Certified Asset Management

WPiAM is a global partnership of national not-for-profit professional associations that was founded in late 2014 to enable individuals and organisations to develop, measure, and recognize competence in Certified Asset Management for the benefit of their members and the global society.


The WPiAM's three primary objectives are to

  • Maintain a database of questions and answers appropriate for certifying ISO55001 auditors and assessors in the bare minimal knowledge and awareness of asset management;
  • To serve as a global certifying body for personnel in the marketplace; and
  • Demonstrate the ideals of honesty, teamwork, and public service.

WPiAM has issued a statement outlining the distinctions between WPiAM and the GFMAM. This message can be viewed in your favourite language by selecting it below.


World Partners in Asset Management (WPiAM)

Originally created in 2014 to facilitate the establishment of the CAMA Exam, WPiAM is now an Australian-registered not-for-profit organisation. Currently, participation is limited to GFMAM members, but may expand to include other organisations that match the WPiAM selection requirements in the future. The WPiAM is governed by a five-member Board of Directors elected by the membership and a Management Company that is responsible for administering the CAMA test, Global Certification Scheme, and other administrative responsibilities.
