CIE’s Alternatives Forum explores the role of alternative investments in institutional
portfolios at a time when investors are looking to diversify the sources of risk and return
away from interest rates and equity market beta.

The Forum examines some of the key factors to successfully investing across private
and alternative markets domestically and abroad. It focuses on effective implementation
of investment strategies, explores various approaches to portfolio construction and
highlights the key trends taking place now and into the future across the spectrum
of alternative investments.

Some of the other issues the Forum looks to address relate to methods of accessing
private and alternative investments, the associated fees, risks and opportunities for
investors, due diligence considerations, strategies for managing illiquidity and the different approach required when dealing with a counterparty compared to a public exchange.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Exchanging ideas and views on various approaches investors can take to diversify
    their portfolios
  • Exploring global investment opportunities across private and alternative markets
  • Assessing the challenges investors face in allocating capital to alternative assets
  • Strategies for deploying capital and optimally implementing alternatives into institutional portfolios
  • Trend analysis: highlighting the differences and similarities between regions and global markets
