The Standards Board for Alternative Investments (SBAI) is a neutral standard-setting body for the alternative investment industry and custodian of the Alternative Investment Standards (the Standards). It provides a powerful mechanism for creating a framework of transparency, integrity and good governance to simplify the investment process for managers and investors. The SBAI’s Standards and Guidance facilitate investor due diligence, provide a benchmark for manager practice and complement public policy. The SBAI is a platform that brings together managers, investors and their peers to share areas of common concern and develop practical, industry-wide solutions.
