Since becoming CEO of the Managed Funds Association in early 2020, Bryan Corbett has focused on boosting the image and influence of the hedge fund and alternative investments industry with policymakers in Washington, D.C., and internationally.

Now MFA, whose member firms manage nearly $1.6 trillion, is looking to expand its brand and intelligence-gathering at the state and regional level.

The association announced the MFA Partnership Program on Sept. 15 with five partner associations in California, Connecticut, New York, Texas and Florida. Program members gain access to regulatory and policy briefings, networking opportunities and support for marketing, events and strategic planning. They also get a seat on the MFA Partnership Advisory Council.
