Opal's annual endowment & foundation conference is an event intended to provide a forum for the free exchange of ideas concerning portfolio planning and investment strategies. Rather than focusing on a particular investment style, this conference will tackle the issues that are most germane to the nationâ€™s endowments and charitable foundations by examining critical investment topics, as well as the need to align fiscal strategy with the goals of a particular organization. Participants and delegates will speak on a range of issues, including the necessity for non-profit governance for endowments, means of capturing alpha in a portfolio, methods of choosing money managers, and problems of ethics and liability in fiduciary planning, as well as addressing the pros and cons of investing in equity, fixed income, alternative, and real estate products. By targeting the industry sector, guest speakers and participants can gain a greater understanding of how their organizations can utilize and dovetail with particular investment strategies.
