Meeting Your Investment Objectives Using Real Assets: Strategic and Tactical Considerations
Institutional Investor Forums’ 4th Annual Global Real Assets Investment Forum will provide a comprehensive examination of the competing views of the real asset cycle, probing whether the secular bull market is reaching its end or may be due to continue. Academics, leading asset managers, and your peers — investment decision-makers from the larger pension funds, endowments, and foundations in North America — will provide insights into the issues you must be aware of as you consider making an allocation to commodities or infrastructure, increasing an existing allocation, or re-allocating.
