Organized in 2001 as the Southeastern Hedge Fund Association, Inc. (SEHFA) and renamed in 2019 as the Southeastern Alternative Funds Association, SEAFA is a regionally focused tax-exempt 501(c)(6) trade organization dedicated to professionals active in the alternative investment industry in the Southeast.

Through its programs, events and activities, SEAFA’S mission is to provide education, interaction, and advancement of its members.

Beginning in mid-2019 the name of our association changed from the Southeastern Hedge Fund Association (SEHFA) to the Southeastern Alternative Funds Association (SEAFA) to reflect our focus on the rapidly expanding and dynamic alternative investment industry. We believe the name change and re-branding efforts better reflect our value proposition to SEAFA’s growing membership and stakeholders in the Southeast region.
