Alternative Investment Management (AIM13), a privately owned investment management firm, has appointed Jason Klein, Senior Vice President and Chief Investment Officer of Memorial Sloan Kettering, to the firm’s Chief Investment Officer (CIO) Advisory Council.
As CIO of Memorial Sloan Kettering, Klein (pictured), oversees more than USD5 billion in long-term global investment assets and leads the asset allocation, manager selection and risk management efforts. Under his leadership, since 2008, the Memorial Sloan Kettering team has achieved peer-based recognition for innovation, portfolio construction and investment achievement.

He is also a current member of the Investment Advisory Group of The Council on Foreign Relations, the Global Capital Markets Advisory Council for The Milken Institute and The Economics Club of New York.
AIM13’s CIO Council serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas and insights among the members and AIM’s investment team. The Council’s existing members are some of the most respected professionals that have served in the endowment and foundation CIO world: Paula Volent, Chief Investment Officer, Bowdoin College; Larry Kochard, Chief Investment Officer, Makena Capital Management; Erik Lundberg, Chief Investment Officer, University of Michigan; and Michael Condon, former Chief Investment Officer, Southern Methodist University.
“We are very excited to welcome Jason to the Council and expand the depth of its expertise,” says AIM13’s CEO Jonathan Harris. “Jason’s investment experience and institutional relationships will strengthen our ability to source and evaluate new investment opportunities and provide our partners with additional access to other investors in private markets.”
