Hedge fund, fund of funds and managed futures fund managers of all sizes, structures, domiciles and strategies are the primary constituents of MFA membership. MFA has created three membership categories based on size and level of benefits.
Sustaining members are generally large fund managers (typically with at least $1bn AUM) who wish to be instrumental in helping MFA structure its goals and agenda. Sustaining members provide vision, opinion and consensus views that help MFA form policy on issues affecting the industry. Sustaining members have the opportunity to provide substantial impact on MFA initiatives through participation on a wide range of active committees and working groups. For a list of complete benefits, please contact MFA here.
Capital members are generally mid- to large-size fund managers. This category is the lowest at which a fund manager with at least $500 million AUM may join. Capital members are able to participate in significant ways on MFA committees and working groups. Capital members also receive a continuous flow of information on myriad issues. For a list of complete benefits, please contact MFA here.
Basic members are fund managers with less than $500 million AUM. Basic members participate in MFA’s member-wide activities such as conferences and seminars and other valuable Members-only educational and networking opportunities. While not involved in shaping MFA’s policy, Basic members are kept abreast of MFA initiatives and events. For a list of complete benefits, please contact MFA here.
Subscriber members include start-up and emerging managers with less than 18-months in the business or less than $20 million under management.
