Private Equity Association of Los Angeles


The Private Equity Association of Los Angeles (PEALA) was established with the mission to support, educate and connect the relatively fragmented community of private equity associates in the Los Angeles area.

Membership in PEALA is open to any member of the Los Angeles investment community, with the belief that a breadth and diversity in membership will enhance the experience for all participants. PEALA's programs and events are tailored towards junior and mid-level professionals working in principal investing roles at private capital firms, including private equity, mezzanine, credit and BDC investing.


PEALA's founding objectives are to:

Provide opportunities for social networking with industry peers 

Connect finance professionals with non-profit and community service groups 

Host educational forums and workshops for professional development 

Coordinate and host information sessions with leading MBA programs
