Eric Upin, Former CIO of the California–based investment firm Makena Capital Management, uses his skills as a practitioner of multiasset, endowment-style investing to help the firm’s clients — endowments, foundations, sovereign wealth funds and family offices — navigate global markets. The Chicago native honed his skills in the same role at Stanford Management Co. and joined Makena in 2009, four years after the investment firm was founded by Michael McCaffery, SMC’s former president and CEO, and two of Upin’s SMC colleagues. In 2019 Eric co-founded Main Post Advisors LP, an asset management and private equity firm.
