Asset Allocation Summit Asia 2010 (AASA 2010)
Venue: Four Seasons Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Mar 15, 2010||End Date/Time: Mar 17, 2010|
With the success of the Asset Allocation Summit series of conferences in Australia, New Zealand and Europe, Terrapinn presents Asset Allocation Summit Asia 2010 - Asiaâ€™s leading forum focusing on strategic and tactical asset allocation for both asset managers and Asian institutional investors, at a time when asset allocation is more critical than ever.
Why the need for asset allocation?
A year ago, everyone was talking about how the sovereign wealth funds were going to save the world. They too have suffered a rude awakening, and having committed billions to global equity markets, it will take a long time for them to recover their minimum return targets. The post-Lehman world has called into question many trusted assumptions about investing. We are questioning the fundamental concepts of asset allocation and the efficient portfolio. There is an argument that diversification may not have offered the protection it was meant to. We doubt the efficacy of the supervision given to the management of funds. And while much of this is the natural reflex reaction to the shock of what has hit us in the last six months, itâ€™s important to take stock and assess whether your portfolio is properly constructed.
Join us as we explore the latest global investment strategies for Asian institutional investors, including:
Alternative investments â€“ the appetite for institutional investors for private equity, real estate, infrastructure and hedge funds in the light of recent return
Update on regulatory regimes in Asia following global financial turmoi
ETFâ€™s â€“ passive versus active
The appetite for distressed debt as an asset class
Commodity investment â€“ Is this the right choice?
The BRIC story â€“ how does this appeal to Asian investors?
Managing the different risk factors: volatility, liquidity, downside risk, funding risk and asset allocation risk
