Overview

The investment landscape continues to be changeable due to significant geopolitical risk, consequently causing a challenging returns environment for investors. But how does a CIO adapt their strategy in a world of negative yields? Is a move to increase allocations to more long term, illiquid investments the key to securing yield and delivering returns? Which alternative assets should investors favour as we come towards the end of 2019?

Join the Financial Times and Societe Generale to discuss the realms of alternative investing and hear directly from institutional investor CIOs. Learn how your peers are allocating toward alternatives in their portfolios, which sector, geography and risk profile they prefer to invest in, the challenges they face and how they overcome them. This exclusive breakfast roundtable will be held under the Chatham House rules and will provide the ideal environment to share experiences of alternative investing and the potential it offers for yield and return.
