The Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association (“CAIA Association” or “CAIA”) is a global professional body dedicated to creating greater alignment, transparency, and knowledge for all investors, including savers, beneficiaries and the general  public, with a specific emphasis on alternative investments. As the ultimate goal of the financial markets is to efficiently allocate investment capital to the most socially and economically-sound opportunities, it follows that diversification across the full-risk  premia spectrum, including private asset classes, is a founding principle of proper fiduciary responsibility. With strong evidence that professional and patient capital allocation serves to catalyze innovation, cultivate societal wealth, and ultimately contribute to more healthy and inclusive economic growth, the CAIA Association advocates for a sustainable, long-term and fair capital markets system that will improve investment and societal outcomes.
