The purpose will be to explore, discuss and investigate the most pressing critical investment issues for alternative asset managers and their investors. Some of the topics include transparency and risk management in alternatives, the pro and cons of alternatives in the asset allocation mix, and is the only way to capture alpha by selecting high performing managers, with historic hedge fund returns being so dismal.


Moreover, the forum will give a macro-economic discussion on the state of the US

vis-à-vis the rest of the world, and in what sectors the US still beats the growing competition. It will also give updates on the state of capital raising in 2011.
