The CFA Society Philadelphia presents: Annual Alternatives Panel: The State of Alts in a Post-COVID Era


Online event

People in finance often observe that “alternative” investments - so called because of the niche role they once played for investors - need a new name.

Over the past twenty-five years, alternatives have evolved from a small part of the portfolios of the world’s largest investors into a core holding. Alternative investments - which include non-traditional asset classes such as private equity, private credit, real estate, infrastructure and more - represented just 5 percent of global pension portfolios in 1996. In 2020, they accounted for more than 25 percent.

Join us for a lively panel discussion on the future state of alternative investing post-COVID. Panelists will offer their perspectives on the current state of alternative investment strategies during, and after, the pandemic.

Speakers:
Bennett P. Lomax, President & CEO, Lomax Companies
Andrew Dakos, Partner, Bulldog Investors, LLP
Mike Ryan, CFA, Head of Product Development and Evergreen Portfolios, Hamilton Lane

Moderator:
George Tsetsekos, PhD, Francis Professor of Finance and Dean Emeritus, Drexel LeBow College of Business
