AIF Women Investors’ Forum, Initiatives Highlighted in Industry Research Report

KPMG participated in the 2018 AIF Women Investors’ Forum in preparation for its sixth annual research report on women’s advancement in alternative investments. In collaboration with AIF, KPMG gathered insights from female executives in the industry to shine a light on key initiatives making a difference and to examine the best practices driving progress.

Melissa Waller, president of the AIF Institute, was one of the primary contributors to the white paper, which focuses on data, reinventing the culture, and removing obstacles to attract, retain, and advance women in the alternative investment industry.

“The data for increased decision-making roles for women within alternatives continue to reveal the substantial value created across the spectrum. It is imperative that we engage in thoughtful discussions and connect both women and men to these critical data to foster the success of both women in leadership and the industry as a whole,”
