Asset Allocation Forum in Alternatives 2009



The second annual Asset Allocation Forum in Alternatives 2009 will gather key industry leaders from the alternative investment community in an asset allocation, portfolio management and current sector opportunity event.


The focus will be to investigate a spectrum of critical investment issues for investors in alternative assets, and the challenges and opportunities they face. Topics will include the next phase for hedge funds and their reexamined role, inflation, gold and currency issues, the importance of operational due diligence, asset allocation for a world on different recovery paths, and the power play between investors and managers in setting terms.


The forum will showcase current sector opportunities, including, Emerging Markets, Energy/Commodities, Credit/Distressed Debt, Value/Equity strategies, Niche Strategies, and Macro/Event driven strategies, as well as Private Equity.


The forum is especially centered on growing and mid-market managers and provides an excellent platform to gain direct exposure to a wide plethora of 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 40 investors and 70 managers are expected.
