During the Global Alpha Forum, we will be hosting a Symposium dedicated to exploring the unique issues, benefits and opportunities offered by Liquid Alternative products. The use of a Mutual Fund structure to offer a diverse and robust array of investment strategies to a broader audience has forever changed how and who invests in Alternative Investment strategies.
Now, Financial Advisors, RIA’s, Family Offices, and even Institutional Investors, have the opportunity to take advantage of more sophisticated trading strategies while maintaining the ability to liquidate an investment on a daily basis. While Liquid Alts are not appropriate for everyone, they do provide a unique benefit to most well-structured portfolios. At the Liquid Alts Symposium at Global Alpha, we will explore how to best integrate the product into a portfolio.
Additionally, we will delve into the issues that Fund Managers face when deciding to launch a Liquid Alts product, hearing directly from Managers and Service Providers that have gone through the process. We will explore each phase of the process, from launch to execution and marketing to, exploring fully industry best practices.
