The Alternatives Investment Programme (AIP) has been developed alongside a range of leading European and global private equity and asset management firms. The AIP recognises the need for diversity across its professional teams and the programme is dedicated to supporting that process by helping under-represented groups access and develop career opportunities to transform D&I outcomes.
Through ten comprehensive workstreams, the AIP will provide intensive training, mentoring, job opportunities and ongoing career support. High priority actions are already underway relating to secondary school engagement and training of junior associates through the AIP’s flagship Fellowship programme. The Fellowship builds on the outstanding success of a similar programme established in 2009 by SEO London’s predecessor entity in the United States. The US programme has developed into an industry-wide community and has successfully placed over 90% of its Fellowship programme participants into permanent positions within private equity and alternative asset managers.
