Emerging & Diverse Manager Exchange is a full-day event targeted at women and minority owned alternative investment firms and investors in those firms. A diversity event that doesn't discuss diversity, Emerging Manager Exchange will provide a forum for women and minority investment firm owners to better understand the capital raising process and investors to connect with these managers.

Who Should Attend?
Women and Minority-Owned alternative investment managers who are raising capital, and institutional and family office investors who allocate money to third party money managers.

Why Should Attend?
Attendees at Emerging & Diverse Manager Exchange will learn what family offices and institutional investors are looking for in alternative investments, including:

Their decision-making trees;

Average time to investment;

What makes a deal vs. what breaks a deal;

Getting and keeping an allocation;

Whether diversity makes a difference;

And much more!

Furthermore, investment managers will benefit from investor networking, both from those with a mandate to invest in women and minority owned businesses and those looking at implementing policies to direct capital towards these managers.
