AltFi Summit 2014

Event : AltFi Summit 2014

Tue, 11/03/2014  
Conducted by : AltFinanceNews
Contact : Ryan Weeks

P2P lending, investing in online invoices and crowdfunding - the Alternative Finance space is growing at a phenomenal rate with 2014 likely to be the biggest year yet for investors!

Every week seems to bring new opportunities (and talk of tax breaks!) and that means that professional advisers and investment managers need to understand the true scale of opportunity represented by this disruptive sector.

What are the likely returns from lending to businesses and consumers through P2P platforms?

Can investment managers construct short duration diversified portfolios of invoice based investments?

Can crowdfunding opportunities sit alongside EIS structures and venture capital?

Which platforms will be tomorrow's dominant brands and how can I invest in them?

AltFi aims to answer all of these questions and much more! We'll feature all the major platforms from Europe as well as some of the biggest VC and PE investors in this fast growing, disruptive space.

Platforms speaking at the event will include Prosper, Zopa, Ratesetter, Funding Circle, RebuildingSociety, Market Invoice, Platform Black, Crowdcube, Trustbuddy and many more! We've also got nearly all the major investors and advisers to the platforms including P2P Capital Solutions, GLI Finance and Liberum.

Our exclusive audience of industry leaders and sector investors includes nearly all the major platforms in Europe, key venture capitalists, private equity firms and leading wealth sector investors looking to put money onto these new platforms.

It's the definitive European event for this fast growing sector, with a focus towards investors, investment opportunities and business development for the sector.
