Membership criteria

To become a PEWIN member, a current PEWIN member must first nominate you.

Members need to be in decision-making roles at their organizations, and are Managing Directors, Partners, Chief Investment Officers or Asset Class Heads. For GP professionals, that requirement includes membership on the firm's investment committee. As a guideline, we look for ~10 years of relevant experience;
private equity investment-focused professionals (memberships outside of our core LP and GP target are very limited); and sponsored by an existing PEWIN member.

Eligible asset classes include: private equity, private credit and venture capital (Excluded: real estate, real assets and infrastructure).

How to nominate

Current PEWIN members can nominate new members through the member portal. Log in to the portal and complete the nomination form.
