Events

New York City, NY
2011 RG & Associates Consortium

More than 300 investors all committed to exploring opportunities with minority and woman owned firms and emerging managers gathered in New York at Consortium 2011. In its eighth year, the gathering has become the forum for emerging managers to “make their case” and begin a dialogue with institutional investors, including many of the top public pension plans, corporate pension plans, foundations, endowments and Taft-Hartley plans. The energy was high and the conversations plentiful during the day and a half gathering. Citing industry trends and issues facing emerging managers—insights gathered via a joint RG & Associates and Emerging Manager Monthly survey of managers across the country—many of the speakers and interactive sessions helped to crystallize the advantages emerging managers bring to an investment relationship. From different strategies and operating models to varied cultural experiences, the talent and track records of emerging managers in attendance were center stage.
