There are numerous definitions of ‘alternative mutual funds’ (AMF). Some definitions include investment in gold, real estate, and other tangible assets. Investors hurt economically by the 2008 stock market collapse put money into alternative mutual funds. By May 2014, the alternative mutual fund market assets were $300 billion with substantial inflow of capital.
Many investors have not been aware of, or ignored, the unique risks associated with these diversified funds. Alternative investments often are less liquid, less transparent, have high fees, and tend to have complicated tax implications. Knowing the risks of investment in AMFs and the risks of failure to comply with a myriad regulations will become a critical concern to many companies and investors as The Securities and Exchange’s (SEC) Commission’s Division of Investment Management investigates AMFs in late 2014 or early 2015.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of Alternative Mutual Funds and issues of Compliance and Risk Management in 2015. Speakers will discuss the up-coming investigations of AMFs by the SEC.
