Amid the COVID crisis, early stage and M/WBE emerging managers may have an uphill battle regarding opportunities in today’s current climate. However, the track record of select emerging manager’s innovative investment strategies and an overall ability to outperform can be a differentiator and attraction for LPs looking to garner yield in a dislocated market.

Even through this uncertainty, many institutional investors are either continuing to allocate or plan to allocate capital to this niche sector.

Join 200+ emerging managers, GPs and LPs on November 20 at Emerging Manager Connect for critical insight on strategies, techniques, opportunities, due diligence and risk management for M/WBE and early stage fund managers, as well as EM investor criteria and benchmarks demands.

Discussions will revolve around the most pressing topics and best practices affecting the EM and LP today including:

The LP view of the EM landscape:
• The rise of operational due diligence
• Constructing a diversified LP portfolio
• The vetting and selection processes
