In 2023, GCM Grosvenor combined the SEM Conference and Consortium, into a singular event with the sole purpose of elevating the small, emerging, and diverse investment manager community.


The goal of the newly branded “SEM Consortium” is to provide continued training and education to diverse and emerging investment managers and dedicated networking among institutional investors and consultants, who will gain a “first look” at top manager talent. 

Consortium 2023:
Celebrating 20 Years

2023 marked Consortium’s 20th Anniversary, and we celebrated in style by drawing from each event’s best content to provide attendees with a top-flight program and a memorable experience. Hear from those who were part of the journey from the beginning. 

Conf-2023 Highlights


In 2023, we saw over 700 attendees come together to celebrate Consortium’s 20th anniversary in New York. By uniting with the long-standing Small and Emerging Manager Conference, the event not only sold out quickly, it embraced the energy and scope of a large-scale event with the intimacy of a one-on-one meeting.

For 20 years, Consortium and the SEM Conference have built reputations as premier industry events dedicated to promoting the flow of capital to diverse and emerging investment managers. The goal of the combined conference is to deliver the best-of-the best content by and for industry thought leaders.

The program will continue to focus on the goal of advancing the industry while educating institutional investors and consultants on best practices of allocating to emerging and diverse managers, and providing managers with training and insights to help them fundraise and grow their businesses. 

"A diverse and inclusive industry is better for everyone. It is good for a lot of reasons, but mainly because we believe it drives investment returns."

– Jon Levin, President of GCM Grosvenor
