Why You Should Attend

6th Edition Nordic Asset Allocation: Investing in Alternative Asset Classes

This marcus evans event will take a comprehensive overview of the alternative assets dominating the market. It will explore their true risk profile, future trends and the use of alternatives, such as infrastructure, real estate and private equity as a tool to diversify your portfolio. The event will also explore risks associated with alternatives, with particular focus on liquidity.

One of the key issues sweeping life insurance and pension funds is the low rate environment as it continues to make it difficult for firms to meet their yield target. In the search for yield a new trend has risen, involving investment in alternative assets. Alternative have become increasingly desirable with their ability to give higher returns, but of course this comes at the price of higher risk.
