What You Need to Know about Alternative Investments – Seminar

While some of you might be surprised to find this out… knowing us only in the digital realm of blogs, twitter, and such – there’s actually real life people on the other end of this blog, researching, writing, and scouring the internet for all things alternatives. And we know real flesh and blood alternative investment managers as well. We talk with them every day, hearing their thoughts on where markets are going, what new opportunities they see ahead, and more.

Which led to this bright idea – maybe some of you interested in Alternative Investments might want to meet these managers face to face and hear from them directly. The world’s not all video conferencing and virtual reality just yet – there’s still room for human interaction, right?

So why not get out from behind the computer, and shake a hand or two at our quick half day seminar “What you need to know about Alternative Investments” on May 5th. Yes, we know its Cinco de Mayo – but how many of you are doing a Tequila Bar Crawl anyway… And we will have cocktails following the event!

We’ve got three short presentations for you:

First: Vice President of Evestnet, Ryan Tagal as the keynote speaker. He’ll discuss the popular Liquid Alternatives choice, compared to  possible benefits of private funds and direct access. He’ll also discuss trends among investment advisors and some of the best performing alternative investments of the year.

Next, alternative investment service providers (think non-boring accountants and lawyers) will hold a panel on “What’s new in Alternatives.”  Since the panel is on the “front lines” each day working with managers, they’ll discuss what’s working with alternative asset managers, what new products are being traded, where the growth in assets is coming from, and what best practices investors should be looking for.

Finally, our second panel will dive into the nitty gritty of alternatives with managers themselves;  observing how the managers go about identifying areas of opportunity and alpha in markets around the world.  Topics will range from why these managers selected managed futures and commodities as their Alts vehicle of choice, to where they think the U.S. Dollar and stagnant commodity markets might be going.

If all that will make you a little thirsty – the event will end with a networking and cocktail hour, allowing to speak directly to the panelists and other investors  attending the event.
