Emerging Managers Summit
June 8, 2015 - June 9, 2015
Opal’s Emerging Managers Summit is a great way for investors to find, meet, network with and learn from new managers as well as minority owned managers. Research suggests that Emerging Managers are out performing some of their larger counter parts making them a great contender for allocation from pension plans who are in need for returns, as well as for family offices, endowments and other institutional investors who are looking to be aggressive with their allocations.
The Emerging Managers Conference will provide the unique opportunity to access a diversified group of up-and-coming performance-oriented managers and manager of managers. The conference will explore the benefits and opportunities offered by investing in emerging managers as well as new strategies for implementing an emerging managers program.
Emerging managers will not only have a great opportunity to network with institutional investors, they will also be able to learn how to overcome the challenge of getting overlooked by investors and consultants. They will also be able to meet companies that can help them in building the infrastructure and placing the correct team in place to allow providing investors the service they require. This event will showcase a variety of emerging mangers as well as minority-owned manager funds and other high potential smaller investment firms, and it will offer participants invaluable networking opportunities.
