Throughout the year, ALFI organises conferences aimed at helping the investment fund industry to leverage the constantly evolving industry environment and changing investor expectations and behavior. Our events attract important expert audiences from Europe and abroad at a time when key decision makers are eager to learn about current challenges and how to address them.
Through our annual conferences and our topic-specific conferences, we keep fund professionals abreast of the latest developments impacting their business. These conferences have an admission charge, but they also provide exposure for sponsors and exhibitors from the industry.
European Asset Management conference
Following feedback from our members, we have reviewed the concept of our flagship conferences. The traditional "Spring conference" has become the European Asset Management conference attracting over 600 attendees in March 2017.
Impact Investing Conference
The event usually takes place in May and is the first of its kind in Luxembourg to specifically address impact investing. The aim of the conference is to further increase market attention on the opportunities offered by this specific investment approach. Every year, the conference is gaining increased momentum.
European Risk Management Conference
Global Distribution Conference
The conference takes place in September and focuses on global distribution, regulatory updates, new products and tax implications. The event is the annual meeting of the world’s leading fund distribution community, bringing together the most important fund distributors and asset managers. It is organised in partnership with NICSA, The National Investment Company Service Association, and HKIFA, the Hong Kong Investment Fund Association. Designed as a unique platform to allow participants - from all over the world - to share knowledge and exchange experiences, this conference enjoys a secure place in the agenda of many fund industry professionals.
The 2016 edition attracted 600 industry representatives from more than 25 countries.
A Golf tournament for ALFI members and conference attendees is traditionally organised on the day preceding the conference.
European Alternative Investment Funds Conference
This is the annual gathering of Private Equity, Hedge Fund and Real Estate professionals who can gain insights on the latest market news and trends. In 2016 the conference attracted a record number of 630 participants and 41 exhibitors.
The concept of this conference has been reviewed and renamed to focus exclusively on the structuring and the servicing of PE & RE funds in Luxembourg. The first edition of the PE & RE conference will take place on 21 & 22 November. It will be preceded by a Alternative UCITS & Hedge Fund Forum.
