Structure and agenda
Founded in 1989, IAG is constituted as a non-profit making Association under Dutch law, though its common language is English. Members meet frequently, getting to know each other well as colleagues and building understanding of each other's countries and their legal and commercial frameworks. Three assemblies are held annually, each hosted by a member firm in a different city. The Committee and various sub-groups also meet separately in order to plan future developments.
IAG plans to be represented in all major centres of commercial activity. Great care is taken in the selection of new embers on the basis that only firms of the highest calibre are admitted to IAG. High standards of professional and service quality are expected by IAG members of one another, and are maintained through stringent admission procedures and mandatory compliance with the groupfs Quality Standard. A Quality Control Committee exists in order to deal with any problems which may arise.
Enhanced client services
Each IAG member remains completely independent and free to make referrals to non IAG firms. No referral fees are paid within IAG. The most important criterion in advising a client is always the client's best interests. As well as providing its members with a wider understanding of the world, IAG enhances the services which member firms are able to offer to their clients. This is the main reason for the existence of IAG and for its continuing growth and development.

IAG membership enhances the advisor’s capacity, making it:
- Multi-disciplinary, including lawyers, accountants, tax advisors, real estate advisors, fiduciaries and others.
- International, and worldwide rather than limited to any area or trading bloc.
The ability immediately to consult the right advisor in the relevant country, knowing them as an individual and knowing that they share the same high standard of professional competence and business skills, is of major benefit to the clients of IAG member firms.
