The Alternative Investing Summit will bring together trustees and representatives of institutions as well as money managers and consultant to explore the roles of alternative opportunities and strategies. As a strategy, alternatives offer investors a method to obtain the returns they require to break the paradigm of the 60/40 rule, however not all aternatives are the same nor do they come without certain risks. Participants and delegates of this alternative investment conference will investigate a range of critical investments issues, including discussion of the risks and benefits of various asset classes and investment vehicles such as hedge funds and private equity, examining means cutting costs associated with implementation of absolute returns strategies, reviewing the future of commodities and surveying the landscape of emerging international markets. With the current struggle of obtaining these returns, the questions of fees has become of particular relevance, especially within the field of of alternatives as investors measure their risk v. rewards. We will also look into impact investing as a way of obtaining returns that are socially responsible as well as many issues involved with fund management and the importance of education for trustees and other investment officers.

This conference will exclusively feature dialogue driven panel discussions led by consultants and family offices.
