ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Wednesday, April 6th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
An exclusive group of high-profile global investors and business leaders convened for the 2016 Alternative Investment Management Summit on March 30 and 31 to discuss the trends that will shape the future of the industry. Hosted by Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the event drew over 250 professionals, including more than 50 CEO’s from 35 countries.
“It’s always a pleasure to be able to welcome top players from the alternatives industry,” said Luka Stimac, AIM Summit Managing Director. “From outstanding speakers to world-class networking, it was once again a resounding success”.
The conference featured insightful keynotes from Dr. Nasser Saidi as well as Stephen Weiss. Over the course of the two-day event 40 speakers and 14 sessions addressed the latest risks, opportunities and innovation.
“I found it to be useful forum to exchange ideas about alternative investing with both asset allocators and investors,” Lee Partridge of Salient Partners, a firm that manages over $16 billion, said.
“It is fast becoming the key alternatives conference in the Middle East that addresses the trends from both buy and sell side,” George Triplow, MENA Wealth and Asset Management Leader at EY, added. “Especially the ability to attract international names who are clearly more interested in the dynamics of the region”.
From my perspective the AIM Summit is arguably the best conference in the region because not only does it bring together some of the biggest and best money managers and economic advisors globally, the intimate nature of the conference and the social events it encompasses enables an unparalleled opportunity to exchange and debate ideas with the top professionals in the industry.
AIM Summit would like to thank the Dalma Capital team as well as the AIMA Middle East Executive Committee for their support leading up to and during the event.
