Your Future, Your Super - Implications for Alternatives

In partnership with CAIA Association and hosted by Credit Suisse Private Bank
Your Future, Your Super (YFYS) has important implications across investment portfolios and especially within the alternatives allocation.

Join the discussion with a panel of experts, representing different industry perspectives as they delve into YFYS in terms of its objectives and unintended consequences. Learn how this legislation will impact alternatives portfolios, asset managers, super funds and members' outcomes overall. The panel will explore whether this will push portfolios towards indexing and away from alternatives or whether alternatives will continue to be an important source of return and diversification.

Hear which alternative strategies may benefit from proposed reforms and which will likely fade into obscurity. Find out which industry players may become the winners and the losers on the revised playing field. 

This event will be a webinar, an in-person event in Sydney and a watch party in Melbourne. Both the Sydney and Melbourne events will offer networking with colleagues and new connections over drinks and canapes at a reception generously hosted by Credit Suisse Private Bank.

100 Women in Finance follows local government guidance in producing in-person events. Note that, should local government guidance change in advance of this event, we shall notify guests of any changes or cancellations.

Please check here for local health guidelines for Sydney and for Melbourne.

Produced by the 100WF Sydney Committee.
