About the Conference

The 14th Annual Emerging Manager & MWBE Conference is an opportunity for attendees to connect with New York State Common Retirement Fund investment staff and partners. In a new virtual environment, this year’s Conference will continue to offer investment managers the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the Fund's investment process and manager selection.

Small breakout sessions, while virtual, will allow our staff and partners to establish new relationships with highly qualified MWBEs in the investment arena, and continue to build a pipeline of investments and service providers that enable the Fund to reap the benefits of diversity for members, retirees and beneficiaries of the New York State & Local Retirement System.

At the conference, you’ll learn about:

  • The Fund’s selection and onboarding process of investment managers;
  • Current areas of the Fund’s investment focus; and
  • Common attributes of successfully on-boarded asset management operations.
