Hedge Funds World Dubai 2005
The Hedge Funds World Dubai 2005 alternative investments conference takes place in the United Arab Emirates between February 28 and March 2. The conference will bring together an array of senior alternative investment professionals to discuss a range of issues surround the hedge fund industry and its evolution both globally and in the Middle East.
Man Investments, a global leader in alternative investments, will be a major participant at the conference with three speakers including a keynote address, a chairman and two panellists. The company will also be hosting a one-day pre-conference event on February 28.
More than 40 expert speakers will be presenting on a wide range of industry topic.
“The hedge fund industry has evolved rapidly over the past few years, as a growing number of investors have come to recognise the long-term return potential of the asset class and now stands on the brink of becoming a mainstream investment,” said Man Investments’ Antoine Massad. “Developments over the next couple of years, however, will play a significant role in shaping the future of the industry”
“The Hedge Funds Middle East conference is the single most important event in the region that deals with alternative investments, providing an ideal meeting place for investors and product providers alike to discuss the future development of the industry.”
The event will take a forward view at the outlook for Middle Eastern investors and global hedge fund returns, and play host to debates about emerging strategies, both internationally and regionally. Other discussions will focus on innovations in structured products and alternative investment allocations, creating a forum for specialist and novice investors alike.
Man Investments’ pre-conference workshop will focus on challenges and opportunities in the hedge fund industry. The global alternative investments firm will examine the impact of tough trading conditions in mid-2004 and look at likely developments in 2005 and beyond, with particular emphasis on the continuing relevance of hedge funds to Arab investors and the development of the alternative investment industry in the Middle East.
