The alternative assets industry has continued to grow and is now a mainstay of the modern investment landscape. Example strategies include private equity, hedge funds, real estate, infrastructure, private debt, venture capital and more esoteric aspects such as cryptocurrency. Market volatility, record low rates and a search for potentially attractive risk adjusted return profiles continues to drive the alternatives landscape. In addition, once seen as only available to premier investors such as pensions, foundations & endowments and other institutions, recent regulatory change has sought to expand the reach of alternative assets into the more retail community.
As such, the alternatives industry is expected to continue its rapid expansion and improvement driven by technology, increasing global competition, a focus on diversity and inclusion as well as other factors.
Leading experts in this field will discuss the history, growth trajectory and opportunities in the alternatives space.
