Once again, we return to Arizona to take stock of the burgeoning hedge fund industry and discuss the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Will Institutional Investors, amongst others, continue to pour money into hedge funds because they believe 2005 was merely a bump in the road and that returns will bounce back in 2006? What will be the top strategies for 2006? Is it time to jump back into the convertible market? Does a credit default swap strategy belong in your portfolio? Should you invest in a fund-of-funds or multi-strategy manager or just do it on your own? Or is beta really zero and are hedge fund returns simply tracking the S & P? Should the industry be targeting retail investors?

What sets the 5th Annual Blue Ribbon Hedge Fund Symposium apart from all other programs is our illustrious faculty; cutting edge hedge funds, fund of hedge funds, investors, plan sponsors, and advisors from the hedge fund community: and our format, where we discuss real issues that can make meaningful differences to our investment outcomes. Managers are encouraged to “shoot from the hip” and be as candid and animated, as possible, when sharing their thoughts and ideas as to where you should invest your money in order to enhance returns while managing risk for the coming years.

You will hear sessions that are unique to the Blue Ribbon Hedge Fund Symposium as we cover the most topical issues. Well informed investors need information from a broad range of credible vantage points. The Blue Ribbon Hedge Fund Symposium presents perspectives from those opposed to hedge funds as well as in favor of them. Through panel discussions, workshops, and presentations, you will learn how to respond in today's investment climate. New issues to be covered include:

Convergence of Hedge Funds, Private Equity, and Real Estate, is it a long-term phenomena?
Hedge Fund Spinouts: Are they worth investing in?
Hedge Fund Blowups: How do you protect yourself
Emerging Markets: The last frontier for finding alpha
ETF’s: Their Role Within a Hedge Fund Strategy
Currencies and commodities Update (2 hour workshop)
Strategic Research Institute continues to innovate and lead the alternative investing industry. The company was the first to launch concurrent alternative investment programs and continues to meet the needs of the industry. As part of the "Alternative Investment Roundup", the Blue Ribbon Hedge Fund Symposium will run concurrently with the Private Equity Roundup and the Institutional Real Estate Investing Forum. This year the programs will share General Assembly Sessions the entire morning of the first day and will reconvene for the sessions on the final day of the event as well.

World renowned speakers, the largest gathering of Institutional Investors, the opportunity to network and meet a broad array of alternative investment professionals in an environment that promotes interaction, focused presentations, and the reputation of Strategic Research Institute, combine to make this a "must attend" event that an increasing number of hedge fund managers are choosing to be involved with.
