Alternative Investing Forum Spring 2010

19th April 2010

The Harvard Club New York  

 

The second annual Alternative Investing Forum Spring 2010 will gather key industry leaders from the alternative investment community in a business oriented asset allocation, investment management and current sector opportunity event.

 

 THE TOPICS

The purpose will be to explore, discuss and investigate the most pressing critical investment issues for alternative asset managers and their investors. Topics will include the impact of the government on investors and managers, how investors identify and select alpha managers, inflation, gold and currency issues in asset allocation, single vs. multi-strategy funds, and the state of the US and the world economy.

 

Moreover, the talk panels will discuss how does the investing industry protect itself from fraudulent/bad practice managers, and investor consultants vs. fund of funds; who should investors use?, as well as give updates on investment terms and what changes to expect in 2010. The state of capital raising will also be discussed.  

 

 THE SECTORS

 

                The forum will showcase current sector opportunities, including, Emerging Markets, Energy/Commodities, Credit/Distressed Debt, Value/Equity strategies, Convertible/Merger Arbitrage, Quantitative strategies and Macro/Event driven strategies.

 

AUDIENCE AND VENUE

The forum is especially centered on growing and mid-sized managers and provides an excellent platform to gain direct exposure to a wide plethora of active investors and to network with industry participants.

 

As our previous investor forums, this one-day event is mid-sized, fast-paced and held at the Harvard Club in New York to promote an intimate, easy-to-network environment while keeping prices to attend attractive. Over 130 participants with 45 investors and 70 managers are expected.
