Absolute Returns Conference

SEPTEMBER 14-15, 2021

InterContinental Hotel, Sydney

The Investment Magazine Absolute Returns Conference is designed to examine strategies that deliver absolute return outcomes, including the case for liquid alternatives and how to gain returns from beta, volatility strategies and appropriate fee structures.

Investors face twin asset bubbles in equities and bonds following four decades of stimulative monetary and fiscal policy that have camouflaged the dangers of excess bullish sentiment. As renewed fears of inflation increase alongside elevated leverage in the financial system, do investors need to reconsider the role of alternative and absolute return strategies in the face of a new market regime?

Suitable for heads of alternatives, portfolio managers, CIOs and asset consultants.






Always a great conference. The quality of the attendees, the speakers, and the content is high. The combination of these is what makes the conference great
