Alternative Investments Hedge Funds for Nordic Pension Funds 22-23 September, 2003 - Stockholm, Sweden The regulatory developments and future market trends you need to know to ensure you select the best hedge fund strategy to achieve your investment objectives

An event for those who are unsure about the market outlook for hedge funds and who want to know how evolving Nordic regulations will affect their investment plans.

This conference, providing a unique grouping of pension fund managers, financial experts and hedge fund managers, covers:
  • How the Nordic regulatory landscape will develop regarding hedge fund investment
  • Where opportunities and risks lie within different investment strategies and styles
  • The comparative advantages of single hedge funds, hedge fund of funds, and multi-strategy funds
  • How you can manage the risk inherent in hedge funds, and consolidate the new risks into your existing portfolio
  • How to ensure your fund manager provides complete transparency and timely and accurate information about your investments
The event includes a presentation by François-Serge Lhabitant, Research Associate at Edhec, on Monday, 22 September 2003:

Hedge Funds: The Past, the Present & the Future

There has been a recent shake-out and consolidation of the hedge fund market - many small funds, FoFs and newcomers have had to shut down due to unfavourable conditions, insufficient interest from investors and lack of growth potential. This presentation examines risk and performance over the past few years, and shows you which mix of investment styles to invest in for the future.
  • Identifying Nordic investors and analysing trends in the market
  • What does the latest research say about hedge funds in institutional portfolios?
  • What are the expectations of pension fund managers regarding the hedge fund market?
  • What are the key drivers of hedge fund returns? Do they explain the decreasing returns of the last 24 months?
  • Which investment strategies will see growth, going forward?
  • Is hedge fund diversification still a free lunch?
