GLOBAL INSIGHTS FROM WORLD-RENOWNED THOUGHT LEADERS
JOIN INDUSTRY EXPERTS FOR A DISCUSSION ON INVESTMENT OUTLOOKS, TRENDS, RISKS, AND OPPORTUNITIES IN THE ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENT MARKET. NETWORK WITH A SELECT GROUP OF INVESTMENT MANAGERS AND INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS AT THE HISTORIC FARMINGTON COUNTRY CLUB IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA.
Following the disruptive movements around the world from the Brexit referendum last summer to the unexpected victory of Donald Trump in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, global investors scrambled to adjust their strategies to deal with the impact of the global economy and investment environment in this new era. In addition to the shift in geopolitical forces, investors are dealing with excess levels of money supply contributed by central banks around the world and growing pressure to maintain a targeted level of risk adjusted returns in an environment of low interest rates. Join our renowned speakers as they analyze the current state of investing and uncover domestic and global investment opportunities. We will be examining the rise in artificial intelligence & machine learning and their implications for the hedge fund industry. In addition, we are collaborating with the Richard A. Mayo Center for Asset Management at the Darden School of Business to deliver a deeper analysis of the current debate between active vs. passive investing. Simply put, this is a conference you can't afford to miss!
