We learned how unlisted closed end funds are structured and how they contribute to a well-diversified portfolio. Considered alternative investments, interval and tender offer funds can help build wealth while reducing volatility as their values are not tied to the larger fluctuations of traditional assets and markets. This immersive event brought together leading asset managers as well as distribution and industry partners.

Enhancing Advisor Access and Experience 

Alternative investments have historically been more difficult to access for investment advisors and their clients.  Interval and Tender offer funds offer a registered ’40 Act solution familiar to RIAs with flexible design and often distribution through familiar channels, however challenges still exist.  Service providers, alternative investment marketplaces, advisory networks, platforms, and others across the ecosystem offer solutions to help mitigate education, access, reporting and transparency gaps. We learned about how incumbents and various technology firms are approaching these opportunities to increase access to alternatives.  
 This panel discussed: 
  • What are the biggest challenges facing managers delivering these products and advisors seeking access?
  • Which technology solutions help capitalize on opportunities for advisors?
  • What gaps still exist and where can industry collaboration improve the client experience?
