Since the financial crisis of 2008, investors have shown an increased focus on alternative investments that offer liquid, non-correlated assets as they seek to mitigate risk in their portfolios without giving up on performance. Answering these investor needs, there has been a recent proliferation of Liquid Alternatives, structured as 40 Act hedge funds that provide the advantages of increased transparency and liquidity.

Join us to learn more about some of the innovative funds currently available and the regulatory issues associated with them. Our panel of experts will lead an informative discussion and provide practical guidance to help you understand how your firm can raise assets through registered fund vehicles.
