Meketa defines emerging managers within public markets as firms with majority employee ownership and fewer than $2 billion in assets under management (“AUM”). Furthermore, firms must not have exceeded at any time the $5 billion level in AUM nor have been in business for more than 10 years. Within private markets, Meketa considers emerging managers to be those in the process of raising their first, second, or third fund. Meketa categorizes 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 choose to meet virtually or in person with a Meketa research analyst or consultant to introduce their firm and investment strategies. Managers meeting the above criteria, with whom Meketa’s research team has not met in the past two years, are eligible to participate.
Meketa’s 2022 emerging and diverse manager research events, held in April and October, featured 67 and 73 managers, respectively, across domestic equities, global equities, fixed income, hedge funds, infrastructure, international equities, natural resources, private debt, real estate and venture capital. The participants included veteran-owned, women-owned, minority-owned and public and private markets emerging managers.
