Our Organization

The Performance Measurement Networking Group (PMNG) was founded in 1999. The goal of the organization was to provide investment professionals with varying backgrounds an opportunity to:

  • Attend affordable educational conferences featuring acknowledged experts in their fields

  • Network and learn from their peers in the investment community

  • Keep informed and updated on current industry issues

  • Participate in furthering the adoption of professional standards and best practices
PMNG is committed, as an organization, to providing our members with the educational and industry resources to increase their knowledge and professional standing within their own organizations.

Our Members

Our over 650 members represent professionals in all aspects of the investment community including performance, compliance, operations, marketing and portfolio management. The success of our organization relies on the active and thoughtful participation of our members. Our conferences are strengthened by the attendance of our members who have varying backgrounds and industry experience in the investment community. Their thoughtful suggestions and comments lead to substantive and informed discussions.

Our Organizations's Leadership

PMNG is overseen by a Board of Directors. All members of the Board are volunteers who handle the strategic planning for the group, including developing new membership, organizing educational events, publishing the newsletter, and maintaining an official PMNG website for members.
