Conversation and Networking with Diverse Managers
A gathering for diverse investment managers, institutional allocators and consultants
The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, as part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion in all aspects of community philanthropy, hosted a conversation and networking event to support diversifying the asset management business.
Held Thursday, April 27 at The Blake Hotel, the event featured special guest Connecticut State Treasurer Eric Russell. It included interactive panel discussions and a "fireside" interview between a representative from a national consulting firm and a leader in the asset management business.
Participants shared successes and ways to address the challenges of competing in the institutional asset management business. The program was followed by a reception.
In addition to promoting diversity within the asset management industry, The Community Foundation engages diverse managers for its endowment investments. While only 1.5 percent of assets in the investment management industry are under the management of diverse investment managers, 20 percent of The Community Foundation’s assets are managed by diverse managers.
