Emerging & diverse manager roundtable discussion

May 2021

As Meketa is committed to making a positive impact within the asset management industry, we continue our efforts to include more emerging and diverse managers into our pool of managers. Our semi-annual Public and Private Markets Emerging and Diverse Manager Research Days enable us to discover new managers and new opportunities.

As part of our April 2021 Research Day, we were pleased to include a roundtable discussion for the second year in a row. This year’s roundtable discussion featured four panelists from leading endowments and foundations who discussed a number of issues related to establishing and administering emerging and diverse manager programs. Roundtable participants included Zia Ahmed, Director, United Negro College Fund; Mary Cahill, CEO & CIO, Acansa Investment Management (Former CIO, Emory University); Andrew James, Senior Portfolio Manager, Public Markets and Absolute Return, The University of Chicago, Office of Investments; and Matthew Sapienza, Senior Vice Chancellor & CFO, The City University of New York.
