Meketa Investment Group to host Public and Private Markets Emerging & Diverse Manager Research Day
Meketa Investment Group is to host a Public and Private Markets Emerging & Diverse Manager Research Day in three of the firm’s US offices (Chicago, IL; Westwood, MA; and Carlsbad, CA).
The event will take place on Tuesday 2 October 2018, and will mark the second time this year that Meketa is hosting an Emerging & Diverse Manager Research Day.
Highly experienced in working with such organisations, Meketa is hosting the event to further expand the firm’s outreach to engage professional relationships with emerging, minority-owned, women-owned and disabled-owned business enterprise (MWDBE) investment managers. Meketa defines emerging managers as firms with majority employee ownership and less than USD2 billion in AUM. Furthermore, firms must not have ever exceeded USD5 billion in AUM and must not have been in business for over 10 years. Diverse managers are defined as firms that are majority owned by women, minorities, or people with a disability. There is no limit on AUM for MWDBE firms.
Each participating manager will meet with a Meketa research analyst to introduce its firm and investment strategies. Managers meeting the above criteria, with whom Meketa has never met or has not done so in the past three years, are eligible to participate. The Chicago office event will focus on International and Global Equity managers, the Boston office event will concentrate on US Equities, Marketable Alternatives, and Private Markets managers, and the Carlsbad office event will centre on Fixed Income and Private Markets managers.
