Global Alpha Forum provides industry leading content including both topical keynote speakers and issue driven panel discussions. These panels and speakers cover far more than the current state of the alternative investment industry; they take a deep dive into where our sector is moving and cover the latest and biggest trends. Allocator and managers alike will find it extremely productive to explore new directions in fund investing.
The conference will have two days of 30 minute 1-on-1 meetings. We use a proprietary online meeting scheduler to allow you to pre-plan your meetings during the designated time blocks (see agenda). To maximize the efficacy of these meetings, investors, fund managers and prospects will upload basic investment criteria, and uniform one page “tear sheets” to the scheduling portal.
For the 2016 edition of the Global Alpha Forum, we will be also be hosting four topic specific symposiums to more precisely address distinct alternative investment segments. In addition to providing targeted content, these symposiums will allow for companies to directly network with Venture Capital, Private Equity and Family Office investors.
