SeSSion 1 What are the advantages of institutional and retail investors allocating to alternative UCiTS? The negative interest rate environment has brought challenges to many investors meaning that alpha is crucial. For many institutional investors, unable to access offshore hedging strategies, they have to access hedge fund strategies via a UCITS or onshore structure. Also retail investors who are thinking beyond cash, equities and bonds to build their portfolios will turn to alternative investments for capital protection, alpha and diversification. This session will explore the implications for investors of all types. SeSSion 2 Who has the best strategy ideas for alternative UCiTS today? What is the impact of markets, regulation or the UCiTS wrapper itself? Volatile and risk-on/risk-off markets mean that equities have lost some of their appeal. How are asset managers responding to this challenge? Will strategies that dont need to be domiciled offshore come onshore? This session will discuss the latest strategy developments. SeSSion 3 How to attract assets into alternative UCiTS? Are platforms the solution? or is a new distribution model needed? Raising capital for funds was easier for asset managers before the global financial crisis. Since then, the traditional distribution models have been challenged by a number of factors. This session will explore distribution models and the best way to raise assets in todays highly challenging market conditions. SeSSion 4 The future: Alternative UCiTS and the onshore hedge fund industry in 2020. The sector has a lot of opportunities to grow due to convergence between the hedge fund and traditional asset management industries, more investors will demand that the funds they invest in are domiciled locally, which will mean more esoteric strategies will be available to onshore institutional and retail investors. This session will attempt to paint a picture of what the alternative UCITS and onshore hedging industry will look like over the next decade. Session timings will be confirmed closer to the event
