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. 

SEPTEMBER 15

The ‘Emerging Leaders Initiative’ (ELI) – previously Young Professionals – is a half-day session focused on professional development. Complimentary for Full Conference ticket-holders.

SEPTEMBER 16

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.
