Managed Funds Association Announces International Partnership With CAASA

The Managed Funds Association has added the Canadian Association of Alternative Strategies and Assets (CAASA) as the first international member of its MFA Partnership Program. 

“CAASA's membership features an impressive cross-section of the private funds ecosystem, including fund managers and allocators. Partnering with CAASA is an important step for the expansion of our regional partnership program,” said MFA President and CEO Bryan Corbett. “The inclusion of international partners supports MFA’s expanding global presence to better meet the needs of our globally-focused members and their investors—including pensions, foundations, and endowments."

CAASA is Canada’s largest association representing the alternative investment industry in Canada with more than 320 members — including alternative investment managers, pension plans, foundations, endowments, and service providers — and has organized more than 80 webinars in 2021 plus 6 multi-day conferences. Its membership and activities span all alternatives from hedge funds and venture capital to real estate and cryptocurrencies.

"Joining the MFA Partnership Program enables CAASA to expand further its extensive member offering, including events, educational resources, and networking capabilities, and provide a platform to showcase Canada as a global leader in alternative investment management," said James Burron, President and Co-Founder of CAASA. 

The MFA Partnership Program aims to enhance the collective power of national, regional, and state alternative investment industry networks. The program works to increase collaboration, promote information sharing, build key allocator relationships, and create a more efficient and effective network to support, educate, and connect in markets in the U.S. and around the world. 

"CAASA members will gain access to an unparalleled network of peer organizations in the U.S. through the relationship with MFA," said MFA Chief Commercial Officer Brooke Harlow. "The MFA Partnership Program will provide them the resources to stay on top of the latest policy, regulatory, and operational developments impacting alternatives and private funds investors and allocators."

Current members of the MFA Partnership program include the California Alternative Investments Association, Connecticut Hedge Fund Association, New York Alternative Investment Roundtable, Palm Beach Hedge Fund Association, and Texas Alternative Investments Association.
