Since 2008 the MidSouth Alternative Investment Association ("MSAIA") has been an educational and networking nonprofit organization. In 2022, the MSAIA, along with seven other regional associations, began collaborating more formally under the MFA Partner Program.

We offer a professional environment for constructive dialogue and sharing among members, through quarterly educational programs, networking events and other services designed to facilitate communication and to promote ethical standards within our community of institutional investors, high net worth investors, family offices, alternative investment money managers, professional service providers and academics.

Quarterly events charge $50 which is paid directly to select charitable organizations.

Asset allocator attendees include decision makers on at least $75 billion in assets. Staff attend from Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System (TCRS) (~$55 billion), Vanderbilt University endowment (~$10 billion), Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County (~$6 billion) and several ultra high net worth families.

Membership has grown to approximately 800 members. The target members are alternative investment professionals in Nashville, Memphis, Birmingham, Huntsville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Louisville and points in-between.

Our corporate sponsors have shown their multi-year commitment to supporting the alternative investment industry in the region with their participation at events and generous financial contributions since 2008.
