Millissa Allen has joined the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association as director of business development for the Americas.

Allen comes to CAIA from Hatteras Funds, where she spent eight years managing client relationships and orchestrating marketing campaigns.

In her new role she will oversee strategic initiatives to promote the CAIA program and deepen industry relationships throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“There is no equivalent educational program in the world today focused exclusively on alternative investments,” said Allen, in a statement. “The CAIA charter communicates to employers and clients that you have demonstrated a high-level of expertise in alternative investing. I am delighted and honored to join the CAIA team in meeting our objective and providing the best of alternative investment training and world class service to our members.”

CAIA, which was established in 2002,  grants its charter to alternatives industry practitioners upon successful completion of a two-level qualifying exam.
