We propel human potential.
The SEO Alternative Investments program is designed to help high-achieving young professionals from underrepresented populations gain positions of economic influence.
The initiative includes the SEO Alternative Investments Fellowship Program (AIFP); the SEO Private Equity Clinic for undergraduates interested in finance careers; internships with alternative investments firms; and the SEO Alternative Investments Conference. Together these opportunities provide education, exposure, training, and mentoring to talented professionals historically underrepresented in the alternative investments sector.
In 2015-16, nine Fellows were chosen from 89 applicants; 129 undergraduates attended the SEO Private Equity Clinic; 13 interns were placed with alternative investments firms; and 500 individuals attended SEO’s 2016 Alternative Investments Conference. Since inception, nearly 90% of eligible fellows have received full-time job offers in the alternative investments sector.
