BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Meketa Investment Group (Meketa), a global investment consulting and advisory firm, today announced the firm will host virtual Public and Private Markets Emerging & Diverse Manager Research Days on Wednesday, October 21 and Thursday, October 22, 2020. Originally scheduled as an April in-person event, the research day was refashioned as a two-day virtual event due to Covid-19. To date, Meketa has hosted six emerging and diverse manager research events; this will be the seventh event overall for the firm.
Highly experienced in working with such organizations, Meketa will host the event to further expand the firm’s professional relationships with emerging, minority-owned, women-owned and disabled-owned business enterprise (“MWDBE”) investment managers. Meketa defines the emerging managers category 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 $5 billion in AUM nor have been in business for over 10 years. Within private markets, Meketa considers emerging managers to be those in the process of raising their first, second, or third fund. Meketa defines 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 meet virtually with a Meketa research analyst or consultant to introduce their firm and investment strategies. Managers meeting the above criteria, with whom Meketa has not met in the past two years, are eligible to participate.

All firms that applied for the April event will be automatically registered for the October event, and a Meketa representative will reach out to those managers directly.
