    The Alternative Investments Forum 2024

    In today’s rapidly evolving financial landscape, traditional investment options are no longer sufficient to meet the diverse needs of modern investors. As a result, alternative assets have gained prominence as a strategic choice for portfolio diversification and risk management.

    Following the success of the Alternative Investments virtual conference held in 2020 and 2021 and in-person in 2023, we are excited to present the Alternative Investments Forum 2024. The conference will be brought to delegates by The Collaborative Exchange, with Premier Miton as the lead sponsor. The Alternative Investments Forum is the only conference focused on alternative assets and investing.

    Four broadest categories of alternative assets

    There is no uniform definition of Alternative Investments or a definitive list of alternative assets. The four broadest categories include;

    • public equity (property via REITS, investing in the shares of infrastructure companies)
    • public debt (property via commercial-backed securities, infrastructure via railway bonds)
    • private equity (core property and value add and greenfield infrastructure)
    • private debt (mezzanine loans, often unlisted and unrated).

    What to expect

    Subjects covered during the Alternative Investments Forum include;

    • Navigating the new horizons in private equity
    • looking at the yield landscape
    • unconventional strategies for fixed-income assets
    • using hedge funds and beating the efficient frontier.

    Guest speaker, GG Alcock will join us as he unpacks the booming informal and township economy, its scale and the drivers of growth. During the day, several panel discussions occur, including a panel with pension fund trustees on the challenges and how best to utilise Alternative Assets in a pension fund.

    This premier event aims to provide investors with a comprehensive platform to gain valuable insights into the world of alternative assets.
