SEPTEMBER 15-16TH, 2021
@Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco
Your safety and wellbeing is our top priority as we host our first in-person event in nearly two years. We are implementing a number of COVID related measures to provide a healthy environment for our attendees. As part of our updated health and safety protocol, all event attendees will be required to provide proof of vaccination via an online screening system. In order for vaccination cards to be collected and verified by our 3rd party screening system, all online registrations must be finalized by Friday, September 3rd. Walk up registrations will not be permitted.
For more details on what we are implementing at this year’s conference, please read our updated protocol.
With the theme of “AAAIM Together,” we will once again reunite with our network of leading allocators, asset managers and industry experts. Because AAAIM works to maintain an intimate and family like environment, we plan to limit our registration to 350 attendees this year. AAAIM’s annual conference is the national platform for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) investment managers across the major asset classes of private equity, hedge funds, public equities, fixed income and real assets to meet, conduct business and learn from insightful leaders – and each other. This event gathers a broad range of investment professionals with common interests from public pension funds, other institutional limited partners, emerging managers and large investment firms.
The ‘Emerging Leaders Initiative’ (ELI) – previously Young Professionals – is a half-day session focused on professional development. Complimentary for Full Conference ticket-holders.
The main conference is a full-day of fast-paced and focused programming. Learn about domestic and global opportunities and network with speakers and attendees at the top of the industry.

Dear AAAIM National Conference 2021 Attendee:
Your safety and wellbeing is our top priority. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and are committed to following local, State, and CDC policy as well as implementing additional measures to provide a healthy environment for our attendees. As you may have seen last week, San Francisco is the leading the way for COVID public safety, and became the the first major US city to mandate proof of full vaccinations for certain indoor activities. We are thrilled to be hosting our conference in a location with some of the highest vaccination rates and most disciplined requirements. Please read on for our updated protocol:
- All event attendees must provide proof of vaccination within 72 hours of event check-in.
- Proof of full vaccination will be required to enter the event space. AAAIM attendees will be the only group in the conference space so you will not be interacting with other outside groups.
- A proof of vaccination will be collected in advance through a third party vendor (instructions forthcoming). Day-of registration will not be permitted for the conference unless you are fully vaccinated.
- All attendees must wear masks before and during the event check-in process. We will have masks available.
- At this time, per San Francisco regulations, attendees will also be required to wear a mask indoors unless they are eating/drinking, regardless of vaccination status.
- We will make accommodations for outdoor seating during all meals for attendees who do not wish to eat inside. General Session content will be live streamed to the outdoor area for those who wish to remain primarily outdoors.
- All attendees must practice proper hygiene. Hand sanitizer will be made available.
- All event vendors will follow strict COVID-19 protocols. We are working closely with the Four Seasons to ensure adherence to rigorous cleaning and hygiene practices. Learn more about Four Seasons’ policies here: https://www.fourseasons.com/leadwithcare/.
Additional updates and instructions will be distributed closer to the event. Thank you for taking the time to review this important information, and we look forward to seeing you in San Francisco.
Jim Park, CEO
