The combination of Meketa and PCA has brought together two of the
industry’s most experienced and highly-regarded firms, known for
providing creative investment solutions to leading institutions and
organizations. The firm’s collective client assets under advisement now
represent approximately $1.8 trillion, including over $100 billion in
private markets and real estate assets. Meketa serves a variety of
public and private institutional investors, including defined benefit
and defined contribution plans as well as non-profits and corporations,
in non-discretionary and discretionary capacities.
“Having collaborated on client relationships for many years, and with a
similar approach to capital markets and institutional investing, we
believe the combination of Meketa and PCA is a logical step in the
evolution of both organizations,” said Stephen McCourt, Co-CEO, Meketa.
“We thank all those at both firms who worked so diligently over the past
several months to make this combination a reality, and sincerely thank
our clients for helping make possible our continued success.”
In keeping with the planned integration, PCA Founder and Managing
Director Allan Emkin, and PCA Managing Director Christy Fields, have now
joined Meketa’s Board of Directors, while PCA Managing Directors Judy
Chambers and Neil Rue are now members of Meketa’s Executive Committee.
In addition, other management committees now include representatives

shareholders. Meketa will continue its tradition of extending ownership
to top-performing employees, with staff of both legacy firms eligible to
become Meketa shareholders. New Meketa shareholders will be announced in
the coming weeks.
“We believe the sharing and building upon of best practices developed by
Meketa and PCA over many decades offers an opportunity to enhance our
organizations’ resources, geographic coverage, and services,” said Peter
Woolley, Co-CEO, Meketa. “We remain confident that leveraging our
combined institutional knowledge and client experience will help ensure
we continue as thought leaders in the industry and further our goal of
consistently providing best-in-class service to our clients.”
