More about the Investment Recovery Association.

Investment Recovery Association (IRA) is unique. IRA helps fulfill an important role by bringing people together from disparate industries…all focused on sharing best practices and improving the knowledge and skills necessary to properly perform the wide-ranging responsibilities required of investment recovery practitioners.

We also provide important networking opportunities. Corporate IR managers share ideas with others who also work on the ‘corporate side’ of the equation, or meet with the many providers of specialized services often required in the valuation or disposition of surplus. All with the goal of helping to achieve the highest-possible value from otherwise idle assets–turning the value of idle assets into bottom-line revenue that can be re-utilized somewhere else in the organization.

There are two types of membership in the Association.
Membership for a business or governmental entity, foreign or domestic, with an ongoing investment recovery program that is ancillary to the entities’ principal business activity.

Persons who are employees or agents of certain business, education, and governmental entities like brokers, dealers, contractors, consultants and others who are actively engaged in providing services or information with respect to the disposition of surplus asset.
