Diverse Manager Week at SURS

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Diverse Manager Week is an opportunity for diversely-owned investment management firms with greater than 50% ownership by minorities, women, or people with a disability to present to the SURS investment team, its manager-of-manager partners, and its consultants. The goal of this event is to increase SURS asset allocation to MWDB firms both directly and through its manager-of-managers partners (for smaller, newer managers).

This year’s event will be Aug. 3-7 and will be held remotely via video conference. Each day will have a focus on a particular asset class:

Firms not selected will also be notified and an introductory conference call may be setup with the appropriate SURS investment officer.
