Introduction: ConsortiumEAST 2015

In its 12th Year ConsortiumEAST continues to be the premier gathering of institutional investors with emerging and diverse managers for education and real relationship building. No other forum focused on emerging managers matches our concentration of attendees, action-oriented session content and facilitated networking. Each year our theme correlates to what is most relevant in the EM space. For 2015 our focus is on the Four V’s: Vision, Validate, Value and Victory. All four are necessary to building and expanding EM opportunities.


  • Explore strategies
  • ...for building + growing a focused EM initiative,

  • Connect and move forward
