New York Alternative Investment Roundtable Expands Reach Nationwide Through MFA Partnership Program

New York, NY, September 17, 2021 -The New York Alternative Investment Roundtable is excited to announce that it has entered into a nationwide partnership program with the Managed Funds Association, which will provide Roundtable members with enhanced networking and educational opportunities within the alternative investment arena.

The MFA Partnership Program is a collaborative effort among fivegional and state associations that have come together to enhance their collective resources and overall impact on the alternative investment industry. By sharing information, strengthening collaboration, and fostering greater connections between industry participants and markets across the country, we can more effectively strengthen our impact on the overall alternative investment industry. Under the new partnership, each industry organization will hold a seat on the MFA Partnership Advisory Council and will have a voice in the group’s collective efforts.

“We are excited to join the MFA Partnership Program because of the opportunity it provides us to strengthen the Roundtable’s existing education and best practice efforts within the alternative investment industry,” said Alessandra Tocco, president of the New York Alternative Investment Roundtable. “Combining our resources and initiatives with those of our peer organizations throughout the U.S. gives us all a stronger voice and benefits our members by enhancing the reach of our networking capabilities.”

Benefits of the new partnership include access to global policy and regulatory briefings; collective marketing support for both events and strategic planning; enhanced networking opportunities with peers and industry leaders across the country; and the opportunity to be part of collective advocacy initiatives at both the state and federal level.

Tim Selby, chairman of the New York Alternative Investment Roundtable, added: “Education and best practices have been the cornerstone of the Roundtable since our inception. The MFA Partnership Program provides an opportunity to significantly broaden the reach of our organization’s efforts on this front and to ensure that our members have the best possible access to the educational resources that will help to shape the industry’s future.”

Added MFA president and CEO Bryan Corbett: “The launch of the MFA Partnership Program serves as a critical capstone moment for MFA and our regional partners as we work together to carry forward the important work of creating value for our member firms and the investors they serve—including pensions, foundations, and endowments.”

Other members of the MFA Partnership Program include the California Alternative Investment Association; the Connecticut Hedge Fund Association; the Palm Beach Hedge Fund Association and the Texas Alternative Investments Association.
