On November 28th at 9:00 a.m., the Mutual Fund Directors Forum and the Center for Financial Policy at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business will host a program titled “Board Oversight of Alternative Investments.”
The recent surge in the use of alternative investments by asset managers shows no signs of abating. Alternative investments, previously the province of institutional investors, are becoming increasingly popular with individual investors. Alternative funds – which can provide investors with exposure to investments beyond stocks and bonds or pursue trading strategies more common in hedge funds and similar products – present unique challenges for fund directors, particularly with respect to risk oversight. This program will explore these issues and provide practical information for directors.
The program will be held at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center in Washington, DC. For more information, or to register, please click here.
