AMC Institute DETROIT – August 9, 2015 – During the ASAE Annual Meeting, the AMC Institute released new research confirming the immense value Association Management Companies (AMCs) bring to their clients.

As illustrated in the below infographic, key findings from the study indicate that, on average, AMC-managed associations experience more than three times the growth in net assets and 31 percent more growth in net revenue regardless of size and tax status.

“Given the wide variety of associations surveyed, and the random sampling applied, the findings are remarkably consistent,” said Gaskin, a professor of information systems at BYU. “When we analyzed the data, it was clear that associations of all types and sizes using the AMC model tend to be the strongest financially.”

Additional findings indicated that, on average, AMC-run associations have:

  • Less liabilities as a percent of revenue
  • Lower expenses as a percent of revenue
  • Higher surpluses as a percent of revenue

An executive summary of the research is available on the AMC Institute website.
