Our West Coast program historically focused on emerging markets and macroeconomic themes, but this year we are excited to go further and delve deeper.
Of special consideration will be hedge fund seeding, private equity, mainstreaming alternatives, the growth of the family office, and more. The agenda and content is developed in partnership with leading industry professionals who represent the best of the global investment community.
With cutting-edge content and fresh perspectives from a Who's Who in the hedge fund space, we anticipate another top class conference experience for our stakeholders, with the strongest asset allocator-to-fund manager ratios the event has seen to date.
