ALTSLA is a non-profit, educationally focused alternative investment conference designed to bring the professional investor community together for a full day of dialogue and discussion on the most relevant topics facing investors today.

The 1st annual ALTSLA conference, held in March 2015, was sold out well in advance and received glowing reviews from attendees. For 2016, we have added breakout tracks that will provide attendees with an opportunity to dive deeper into six key areas of alternative investments: Private Equity, Venture Capital, Real Estate, Commodities & Real Assets, Hedge Funds & Liquid Alternatives, and Activist Investing.

ALTSLA is specifically designed to provide relevant, educationally focused content for individuals who manage, advise, allocate to, or oversee alternative investments. This includes:

  • Institutional investors
  • Financial advisors
  • Family offices
  • Asset managers
  • Investment consultants
  • Plan trustees
  • Portfolio managers
  • Research analysts
