New York Alternative Investment Roundtable Names 2023 Leadership

NEW YORK, N.Y., January 6, 2023 – The New York Alternative Investment Roundtable today announced that it has chosen its leadership for 2023. Following is a list of the NYALT Board of Directors, officers and Management Committee members who will steer Roundtable initiatives for the year ahead, including expansion of the organization’s young professional’s initiative.

Some of the Roundtable’s leadership spots have changed, but the organization’s dedication to fostering awareness of the most topical and important issues within the alternative investment industry, and nurturing in-person connections between industry participants, endures.

“After shifting our focus to virtual content during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Roundtable returned to dynamic in-person programming over the past year in a major way. We even introduced an initiative dedicated to helping young professionals enhance their networking skills and develop key relationships within the alternative investment industry –which we plan to double down on in the year ahead,” said Alessandra Tocco, president of the New York Alternative Investment Roundtable. “And we are happy to have a great group of active sponsors from within the industry, including Ultimus Leverpoint our newest sponsor, who help to guide content and provide us an early glimpse of emerging trends that may not yet be visible to the industry as a whole.”

The Roundtable’s sponsors include Alston & Bird; Baker Tilly; Bloomberg; Deloitte; Grant Thornton; New Mountain Capital and Ultimus Leverpoint, along with non-profit sponsors CAIA and Fordham’s Gabelli School of Business.
