iGlobal Forum is pleased to announce the 2nd ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS SUMMIT due to take place on May 4th, 2011 in New York City. The Summit  will evaluate investment opportunities in the major alternative asset classes including hedge funds, private equity, M&A, venture capital, managed futures, distressed debt and credit markets.  Leading experts will discuss and determine which alternative strategies have been most successful and which hold the greatest promise for the future.  The event will also examine the economic and regulatory climate and how they may impact the attractiveness of alternatives going forward.

 

Investors have clearly recognized the benefits of diversification and how alternative assets can help them achieve their goals—higher risk-adjusted returns with reduced volatility.  Following the economic meltdown and market crash of 2008-2009, institutional investors have continually increased their allocations to alternatives—including hedge funds, private equity and commodities—because their performance is generally uncorrelated to traditional investments such as stocks and bonds.  By diversifying their portfolios across both alternative and traditional investments, investors expect to generate consistently greater returns across any economic scenario.

 

Join us in New York City as the leading players in the Alternative Investments space convene—institutional investors and allocators, fund and asset managers—to discuss the most lucrative opportunities and critical challenges in the alternative investments arena. 

 

Key topics that will be covered at the upcoming 2nd ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS SUMMIT:

  • Evolving State of Alternative Investing in the Current Economic and Regulatory Climate
  • Investor Concerns, New Asset Allocation Models, and the Role of Alternative Investments
  • Hedge Fund Trends: What\'s Hot, What\'s Not?
  • Private Equity Prospects - Identifying the Most Promising Opportunities
  • Strategies for Fund Formation
  • Secondary Markets for Hedge Funds and Private Equity Funds
  • Trading ETFs: Factors to Consider
