Manager Searches

Meketa Investment Group regards each search as unique, driven by specific client needs, and requiring a fresh and comprehensive review of the marketplace. To facilitate our searches for appropriate managers, we use eVestment Alliance and Morningstar databases to conduct broad initial screens of the manager universe. Additionally, we compile our own proprietary manager database of approximately 2,000 investment managers and over 3,500 of their respective investment products. Each search is conducted in an open, competitive manner, consistent with our role as a fiduciary.

We post RFPs for certain investment manager searches. If you are interested in participating in a search, please download the RFP and submit it, as described below.
