Alternative Investments: Continued Forecast of Blue Skies?

Tuesday, May 3, 2011 / 8:00 am - 9:15 am

Alternatives finished strong in 2010, in terms of both performance and asset flow. What lies ahead for the rest of 2011? What kind of inflows will this asset class attract going forward? Are investors prepared for new regulations to take effect? Will compliance costs prove to be prohibitive? Which exchanges will capture most of the swaps market? Will we see changes in fee structures? Is more industry consolidation in the cards? What are the current levels of leverage and risk appetite? Which sectors and strategies will generate the best returns? A panel of industry veterans will share insights and predictions.
