Bringing managers and investors together to set standards for the alternative investment industry

What is SPARK?

The Standards Board for Alternative Investments Platform is a new programme from the SBAI for small and emerging asset managers. It provides:

  • Advancement of networks through connection and collaboration with peers and allocators,
  • Robustness of business operations through the SBAI Alternative Standards, and
  • Knowledge of key industry trends and issues through access to SBAI working groups, global events, and guidance memos in the SBAI Toolbox.


The Platform

SPARK is built on the foundation of the SBAI, the Alternative Investment Standards, which were developed over time through extensive consultation with both allocators and asset managers. SPARK provides access to the SBAI community, guidance, and content, adding value across your entire firm.

The Resources

SPARK offers a number of resources for small and emerging managers including transparency tools, guidance and best practice memos, and dedicated events where you can hear directly from institutional allocators on their expectations from these managers.
