Absolute Returns Conference

SEPTEMBER 14-15, 2021

Sydney CBD

The Investment Magazine Absolute Returns Conference explores the strategies that are designed to achieve positive returns regardless of the direction of capital markets. Specifically, the event covers fund strategies such as macro, market-neutral, alternate risk premia, crisis alpha, and trend following, and explores the challenges of finding alpha in a commoditised beta world.

This two-day event is designed for chief investment officers, heads of investment strategy, heads of alternatives, portfolio managers, analysts and consultants.

Registration is complimentary to asset owners and consultants.
