Washington, D.C.— MFA today unveiled the next evolution of its brand, which recognizes its leadership role in the alternative asset management industry and the growth and dynamism of its membership.
The new brand offers a modernized look and feel that celebrates MFA’s development into the leading, global association representing the alternative asset management industry. In recent years, MFA expanded its membership, extended its geographic footprint by opening offices in Brussels and London, and cemented itself as the industry’s top advocate amid unprecedented global policymaker scrutiny.
“MFA and the alternative asset management industry have evolved considerably, and our new brand mirrors that,” said Bryan Corbett, MFA President and CEO. “This brand evolution is not just a change in aesthetics but a reaffirmation of our commitment to our members and the industry.”
Specific changes to MFA’s brand include:
- Introducing a new visual identity, including an updated logo and color scheme.
- Transitioning to using “MFA” exclusively, dropping the full “Managed Funds Association” name.
- Launching a redesigned website at MFAalts.org.
- Adopting a new tag line: “Shaping the future of alternative asset management.”
MFA’s mission remains unchanged – advance the ability of alternative asset managers to raise capital, invest, and generate returns for their beneficiaries. This new brand celebrates what MFA has become and positions MFA for continued success.
