BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Meketa Investment Group (Meketa), a global investment consulting and advisory firm, announced the firm will host a Public and Private Markets Emerging & Diverse Manager Research Day in their Westwood, MA office. The event will take place on Thursday, November 7, 2019, and will be the second Emerging & Diverse Manager Research Day of 2019 and the sixth event overall for the firm.
Highly experienced in working with such organizations, 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 $2 billion in assets under management (“AUM”). Furthermore, firms must not have ever exceeded $5 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 or consultant 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 two years, are eligible to participate.
