EDUCATION SESSION #1048
Allocator Perspectives - Investing in Alternative Funds
This year’s highly anticipated 100WF European FundWomen conference will open with an investment panel.

How are investors positioning their alternatives portfolios given today's macro-economic climate and political tensions ahead? Over the past few years we have seen significantly more capital being allocated to established managers, what is the investor perspective on the future of the hedge fund industry and supporting new talent? Looking across the liquidity spectrum, how are investors perceiving the opportunities and challenges of highly liquid and illiquid alternative solutions in the current low interest rate environment? Practically speaking, how are investors selecting and evaluating funds given increased emphasis on ESG and what is their view of, in particular, a gender-lens investment approach when it comes to women who manage funds?

Our panel of institutional investors will discuss these topics and share practical takeaways to help you in your portfolio selection or your fund marketing.

This is an Education panel open to all 100WF members preceding the invitation-only 100WF European FundWomen Conference.
