Hedge Fund Association (HFA) Midwest Chapter Presents:
Alternative Investment Investing in an Era of Record Corporate Profits
We are living in an era of both record corporate profits and extreme profit margins on a historical basis. Is this the true new normal or is this the time for institutional investors to reexamine their exposure to alternative investments? The symposium explores alternative investment strategies which may have the potential to perform amidst declining stock or bond markets.
The keynote presenter will discuss the performance of managed futures during various market periods and the variety of managed futures strategies available. Our manager panel will provide insights about some of the key opportunities that they see within the global financial markets.
A cocktail reception and professional networking opportunities follows the panel discussion.
