Global capital allocation is the engine for delivering pension benefits and individual retirement goals as well as preserving university, foundation and sovereign savings. Efficiently distributing both financial and human capital across the investment industry catalyzes innovation, cultivates societal wealth, and raises the integrity and quality of human flourishing. That virtuous purpose is incumbent on a properly functioning capital market system where training is robust, ethical conduct is consistent and enforced, and incentives of all parties are aligned. It is also dependent on a long-term, diversified approach to allocating that patient capital.
Since 2002, CAIA Association has sought to serve investors by educating industry stakeholders on the most current knowledge and best practices across the ever-changing landscape of alternative investments. Through credentialing of investment professionals, advocating with regulators and senior leaders, and developing world class thought leadership, CAIA aims to raise the standards of the industry.
