California Bound!

When I set out this year as the President of AAAIM I had the goal of making AAAIM a resource for the AAPI investment community and to make it more accessible to the community. That’s why I launched this President’s Corner this year to bring you more information and more insights into what we are doing as an organization, and it’s also why I have been working hard to get the word out about our events and other opportunities to engage with the organization.

So far, the response has blown me away. So far AAAIM has held incredibly successful events in Austin and New York City. We’ve had great speakers engaging with AAPI investment managers talking both about their personal development as a professional, networking with plan sponsors and hearing from industry experts.

So what’s next? AAAIM’s shifting its attention to the west coast and heading to California! We’re excited to announce speakers for our LA regional event as well as the first round of speakers for the AAAIM national conference! For our LA regional event on July 31st we’re excited to announce that Rod June, Chief Investment Officer for the Los Angeles City Employees Retirement System will be joining us! Rod’s going to share his insights on the industry and talk about how emerging managers can get into the pipeline for his program.

We’re also incredibly excited to announce the first round of confirmed speakers at this year’s AAAIM national conference! This event is the only national convening of AAPI investment professionals and plan sponsors to meet, network and do deals. So far a great slate of leaders in the industry have confirmed including:
