Washington, DC, April 25, 2014 – The Association of Asian American Investment Managers (AAAIM), a national non-profit dedicated to the advancement of Asian American & Pacific Islanders in the field of investment management, congratulates One Rock Capital Partners, LLC on its recent final closing of One Rock Capital Partners, LP. A New York based private equity firm, One Rock Capital, LLC surpassed its fundraising goal of $300 million to close with $431.5 million in capital commitments.
“We at AAAIM are extremely excited for Tony, Scott and the One Rock Capital Partners team for their great success in raising this first fund,” said Chris Chan, President of AAAIM. “Their success is a clear demonstration that there is a strong appetite for diverse and emerging managers across the country and the world. We extend our heartfelt congratulations on their success to date and look forward to seeing the great work they will be producing in the years to come.”
Tony W. Lee, managing partner at One Rock Capital, noted “At One Rock, we’ve seen firsthand how AAAIM can open doors and connect firms like ours with institutional investors. AAAIM has undoubtedly helped attract capital to our new firm from institutions with whom we did not have a prior relationship.”

Founded in 2006, AAAIM’s mission is to provide greater access and leadership mobility for Asian Americans in the world of investment management. Challenged with a lack of diverse leadership in the field, AAAIM advocates with institutional investors to hire qualified minority and women investment professionals and select minority owned fund managers. The organization’s goal is to help Asian Americans break through this ceiling and establish a successful pipeline for AAPIs to grow into the next generation of leaders that reflect a more inclusive economic society.
