It’s not the end of the world as we know it and we do feel fine. There has been a lot of interesting news this week about hedge funds and those who manage them and frankly a lot of it has not been positive.
But fear not, dear reader, our research shows that the industry is poised for great things in the second half of 2012 and beyond. Investors are looking to allocate to enhance beta, create alpha and most importantly protect their portfolios.
However, before they write the check or send the wire, they are spending a lot of time on due diligence. They are kicking tires, and looking under the hood to make sure the engines they fuel run properly. Our Investor Ops Series kicked off today, this is a first event of its kind allowing investors to get together and discuss: the who, what, where, why and how to complete operational due diligence on alternative investments.
The investor-only summit is a deep dive into the ops side of investing. Our next program in the series will be later this fall so be on the look-out for because if you are an institutional investor you are not going to want to miss it. Click here to see a bit more about the program.
The InAlternatives blog will not publish next week. We are going to take an extra day off for July 4th. We will be back on the 11th.
