BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Meketa Investment Group (Meketa), a global investment consulting and advisory firm, today announced the firm will host a Public and Private Markets Emerging & Diverse Manager Research Day in its Westwood, MA office. The event will take place on Thursday, April 2, 2020. In addition, the firm will be expanding this event to include a networking reception, sponsored by Meketa, which will allow participating managers to meet with senior consultants and research staff on the evening of April 1, 2020. This will be the seventh event overall for the firm, and the first of two events for the year.
Highly experienced in working with such organizations, Meketa will host 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 the emerging managers category within public markets as firms with majority employee ownership and fewer than $2 billion in assets under management (“AUM”). Furthermore, firms must never have exceeded $5 billion in AUM nor have been in business for over 10 years. Within private markets, Meketa considers emerging managers to be those in the process of raising their first, second, or third time fund. Meketa defines diverse managers as firms with majority ownership by women, minorities, and/or people with a disability. There is no limit on AUM size or tenure in business for MWDBE firms.
Each participating manager will meet with a Meketa research analyst or consultant to introduce its firm and investment strategies. Managers meeting the above criteria, with whom Meketa has not met with in the past two years, are eligible to participate in the research day.
