Short & Sharp Stage (Day 1) - Alternatives Becoming Mainstream: Trend or Fad?

sponsored and presented by

State Street is sponsoring the Short and Sharp Stage on Tuesday 6 March at 1.15 p.m. to discuss the new Private Equity and Real Assets and hedge products resulting from the convergence of traditional and alternative strategies.

Join our interactive session where experts from State Street and Deloitte will discuss the increase of allocations and exposure to real estate and other alternatives.

  • Will institutions continue to embrace hybrid funds such as the unregulated RAIF?
  • Will alternative managers further increase the use of parallel fund structures?

Discover the drivers behind these trends and the operational considerations for asset managers and their service providers.

Learn more about:

  • How hybrid funds offer different investment strategies
  • The increase in parallel fund structures coupling a Luxembourg AIF with one or more Limited Partners (LPs)
  • Operational considerations for asset managers and their service providers

New Rules of Engagement: Adapting for Growth in Alternatives. State Street commissioned Longitude Research to conduct a global study of more than 500 investment industry executives, including 93 respondents from the alternative asset management sector during March and April of 2017.
