IAM Cycling is a Swiss registered UCI WorldTour cycling team, managed by former French road race champion Serge Beucherie.[1][2]
The title sponsor is IAM Independent Asset Management SA, a Swiss investment management company.[3]



The team was officially launched in January 2013.[4] IAM Cycling is a member of the Mouvement pour un cyclisme crédible. IAM Cycling was selected as a wild-card entry for the 2013 Paris-Nice race.[5]


On 22 August 2013 the team announced that it had signed Sylvain Chavanel and Jérôme Pineau from Omega Pharma–Quick-Step, Mathias Frank from BMC Racing Team and Roger Kluge from NetApp–Endura for the 2014 season.[6] On 28 January it was announced that IAM Cycling had been granted a "wild card" entry to Tour de France 2014, its first Grand Tour. It also raced the Vuelta a Espana. Subsequently in December 2014 the UCI announced that the team would be granted a WorldTour licence for the 2015 season.[7]



In May 2016, the team announced they would fold at the end of the season due to not being able to secure a secondary sponsor.[8]
