How do you set yourself apart as a new fund manager? What do fund managers wish they knew when they first started and how do you navigate the private markets?

Hear from what words they live by to ensure success in their ventures.

Alberto Chalon, Founding Partner, Giano Capital

"Be resilient in reaching for your goals but be open to changing your trajectory if you are unhappy with the results."

Yasmine Lacaillade, Managing Partne, Sinefine

 "Invest in your genius."

Kevin Moore, Founder and Managing Partner, Serac Ventures.

"Growing up as a kid my father would always tell my brother and I to “do the best with what you have”. What he meant was that we should never let our circumstances or lack of resources prevent us from giving things our maximum effort. This is a mindset I adopted early in life and adhere to today."

Gabriel Gallegos, President, and Andrew Parmet, Portfolio Manager, Rocky Mountain Private Wealth Management, LLC

"Meditation and breath work are tremendously underrated and misunderstood. Personal growth allows for career growth. Never stop dreaming and chasing those dreams. If you can dream it you can do it.

Theo Dickens, Managing Partner, Prefequity.

"Fund management is a marathon, not a sprint. I want to be doing this for the rest of my career, so everything we do is done with an eye on our long-term success."
