Chronicles: Issue 1, February 2020

Dear CAIA Members and Investment Professionals,

We’re excited to introduce the inaugural edition of Chronicles of an Allocator. This monthly newsletter has been carefully curated to provide you with a selection of thought leadership pieces, designed to assist and inform the capital allocation process.

As we continuously journey through our now 100 country reach, we have the privilege of interacting with some of the largest and most influential allocators and managers around the world. The dialogue and debate generated in these interactions are invaluable and result in a broad array of blogs, webinars, events, articles, and white papers. We know that navigating the sea of content from the CAIA Association, along with other sources, can be overwhelming. That’s where Chronicles can help.

On a monthly basis, our Content Strategy team will choose a handful of the most relevant industry material to help you chart your own course. Regardless of your current seat, LP or GP, buy-side or sell-side, consultant or service provider, traditional or alternative, we aim to equip all investment professionals to think like an allocator.

As the professional body for the alternative investments industry, our mission begins with ethics and standards. Still, producing relevant content is also a crucial ingredient and this newsletter is just one example of our determination to ensure that the CAIA Association is a trusted voice in the industry. We would greatly appreciate any feedback or counsel on our efforts as we endeavor to serve you better.

Hope to see you in our travels,
