REISA, a trade association serving the alternative investment and securities industry, will change its name to the Alternative and Direct Investment Securities Association (ADISA).
“The change to Alternative and Direct Investment Securities Association better reflects our organization’s mission and what we provide to the alternative investment industry,” said ADISA executive director/CEO, John Harrison. “Our association represents thousands of individuals in alternative investments from all types and sectors, and we strive to provide the best education, networking and advocacy for these professionals.”
Harrison added, “Founded in 2003 as TICA, the organization grew beyond a single investment product type (tenant-in-common programs) to broader real estate based products, and was given the name REISA. REISA’s new name, ADISA, shows the evolution to handling even more areas of investment products.”
ADISA influences more than 20,000 professionals who offer and manage alternative investments, such as non-traded REITs, private placement programs, oil and gas interests, securitized real estate investments, BDCs and more. Members include sponsors/issuers, broker-dealers, registered representatives, investment advisers, registered investment advisers, due diligence officers, accountants, mortgage bankers, institutional lenders and others. The organization promotes education, networking and advocacy, and connects members directly to key industry experts through intimate forums providing timely trends and education that help create a diversified portfolio for members’ clients.
