February 25-26, 2014 • Hyatt Regency • Cambridge, MA

The institutional investor idea exchange delivering solutions for the most significant portfolio challenges in hedge fund investing.

Home

To those who helped make the first GAIM Investor a resounding success, thank you. Over the course of two days, leading institutional investors and hedge fund managers shared their expert knowledge, opinions and challenges with respect to the state of affairs in the hedge fund industry. A few salient takeaways include:
  • Stay away from those whose goal it is to accumulate assets
  • Strategic partnerships between investors and managers, while requiring more work and trust, are imperative and ultimately beneficial
  • With respect to liquid alts, do institutional investors really need daily liquidity?
  • An LP's ability to draw capital away should be perceived as a form of leverage
  • Demand benchmarks
We look forward to seeing you at GAIM Investor 2015.
