The Standards Board for Alternative Investments (SBAI) has established a new regional committee focusing on the SBAI’s work in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA Region) with Elena Manola-Bonthond, CIO of CERN Pension Fund, appointed as Chairman.

The 11-member committee, which is equally split across asset owners and investors, includes Angela Borrett, Partner, European ODD, Albourne Partners.

Managers from Europe (including the UK) account for 35% of the SBAI’s Signatories and institutional investors account for 32% of the SBAI’s Investor Chapter Members. The SBAI’s EMEA Committee is the third regional committee following the creation of its Asia Pacific and North American Committees in 2016 and 2018, respectively. 

Mario Therrien, Chairman of the SBAI said: “We’re excited about the launch of the EMEA Committee and are grateful for the support of the industry leaders who agreed to serve as its members. While the SBAI’s Alternative Investment Standards are universal in nature, it is important that we have industry leaders to address unique topics and facilitate the dialogue between regional asset owners, managers and regulators.”
