Global Alpha + Risk is CIE’s inaugural one-day event bringing together a senior delegation of institutional investment professionals and organisational decision makers, giving participants a unique opportunity to engage in a dialogue with global investment experts, discussing global alpha opportunities and risk.  

As we near the end of a very long market cycle, valuations across asset classes are at heightened levels. This is challenging investors in search of alpha to find attractively priced opportunities across a range of asset classes and geographies, as a means of meeting their return objectives. At the same time, the extended low interest rate environment has led investors higher up the risk curve, which has spurred a renewed focus on better understanding, measuring and managing risk inherent within their portfolios. This is particularly relevant now as we are seeing interest rate cycles between major global economies decouple, the process of which could be the trigger of market dislocation as investors reposition their allocations in response.

 Topics to be covered include:

  • Exploring new investment ideas and active strategies in pursuit of alpha

  • Global investment insights on investing across asset classes and geographies in search of yield

  • Looking for alpha opportunities in private markets

  • Reviewing asset specific and macro associated risks on the horizon

  • Developing the toolkit for better understanding risk embedded within portfolios

  • Assessing risk management strategies and effective implementation

Who should attend?

Chief investment officers, head of strategy, head of asset class, senior investment staff, chairs, chief executive officers and trustees of institutional investor entities.


Approximately 30-35 representatives of institutional investor entities.
