Current Trends in Raising and Investing Capital in Alternative Investments

Sponsored by Ogier
Technology, the search for alpha, ESG concerns and the COVID pandemic are all affecting how fund managers structure their offerings and which opportunities investors decide to pursue.

Learn what lies - or should lie - at the top of the agenda for managers and for investors - and does that always align. Is a niche strategy the next wave? Are hybrid funds the new normal? Is there a trade-off between impact investing and returns?

Consider how you will incorporate these insights into your firm’s funds or into your recommendations to your clients, not to mention your own portfolio.

Please email your questions to cayman@100women.org by Monday, September 27, 2021 or you may submit them during the webinar.
