Introducing the AIMA NextGen Emerging Manager Group in the US

By Romuald Beneche, Director, AIMA

Published: 11 October 2021

Throughout my 21-year career, a passion of mine has always been helping emerging managers get to the next level. Whether it’s helping an emerging manager through the launch process or providing guidance to existing managers, I fully immersed myself in the success of my emerging manager clients. My goal was always to be viewed as a partner by my clients and not just a service provider.

When I joined AIMA a month ago as a Director in the New York office, I jumped at the opportunity to bring AIMA’s NextGen manager group to the US. While manager members of all sizes are welcome to take part in our peer groups for IR/Business Development professionals, Ops/Finance and Legal/Compliance, the NextGen group is a platform for managers under US$500mm to exchange ideas and discuss issues that specifically relate to their size and stage of development. The group will include:

  • Investor-focused meetings with discussions on allocation trends and information on investor needs and preferences
  • Meet the allocator series that will provide emerging managers with the opportunity to ask questions to an investor who allocates to funds at their stage and size
  • Presentations by subject matter experts on current and relevant topics that directly impacts the emerging manager community

I look forward to interacting with all of our emerging managers and helping them get to the next level. Please reach out to me directly to learn more about the US NextGen Manager Group.
