Formerly known as the Securities and Derivatives Industry Association (SDIA), the Stockbrokers Association of Australia is the peak industry body representing institutional and retail stockbroking firms and investment banks in Australasia.

The Association states that it "strives to promote the high standards, skills and knowledge of securities and derivatives professionals," listing a number of key priorities it defines as its mandate.

These are to:

  • effectively represent the stockbroking industry on policy and issues with Government and regulatory agencies
  • represent the industry customer-supplier - relationship issues with exchanges, clearing houses and other suppliers
  • provide professional recognition for industry practitioners
  • promote the stockbroking profession
  • provide professional education and training
  • facilitate to discuss and resolve industry-wide issues
  • ensure members are better informed on issues likely to affect their business; and
  • collect and publishing statistics on the industry.

Since forming in 1999, the Association has been hard at work on delivering on these priorities, while actively engaging members, regulators and other market participants to further strengthen the stockbroking profession.

Members of the Stockbrokers Association of Australia include institutional and retail stockbrokers and investment banks of all sizes across the entire breadth of the industry, in addition to individual practitioners.

Structurally, the Stockbrokers Association of Australia has a set of standing committees that support the board in prescribed areas. The Association has also established a network of committees and advisory panels that provide a forum for industry specialists to discuss and resolve issues important to Association members.
