- 2013 Family Office Participant
The second annual Wealth Management Insights Summit is an invitation-only, fully hosted event for Family Office investors. It’s not a traditional conference. Rather, it’s a relationship-building 2-1/2 days of education, networking and exploring new strategies for alpha generation.
Exclusive to attendees meeting particular qualifications and intentionally limited in size, WMI 2014 provides an intimate environment for business networking, face-to-face due diligence opportunities for Family Offices, and in-depth communications opportunities for hedge funds, alternative strategies and private equity-like money management firms to explain how they manage their investment portfolios.
The Summit also includes conference sessions, a golf tournament, and intimate networking opportunities with top industry experts offering insights, advice and actionable ideas for both Family Office attendees and money management firm participants. The event’s networking programs, dining and networking receptions, and golf tournament are structured to give investor and money manager attendees the opportunity to more easily build relationships that may lead to investment allocation decisions among the participating Family Offices.
Family Offices seeking to enhance return generation in and diversification of their portfolios are on the lookout for hedge fund, private equity-like and other alternative strategies managers whose strategies and investment processes best fit each Family Office’s particular investment needs.
WMI 2014 offers Family Office investors an efficient and effective way of learning about new alternative investment opportunities, allowing them to conduct the important initial round of in-person meetings to gauge, beyond the data, which managers and funds are worth further due diligence.
Additionally, Family Office members have the opportunity to network with peers, sharing ideas and insights on investments and overseeing family portfolios.
It is challenging and costly to identify and meet 1:1 with Family Office investors around the country who are interested in hedge funds, private equity-like investment managers and other alternative strategies portfolio managers.
Also, attempting to find and network with Family Office investors at typical industry events where there may be hundreds of attendees or more — many of whom are neither investors nor fund managers — is often a cause of frustration among money management firms and investors alike. This is not an issue at WMI 2014. Registration is not open to service providers whose aim is to sell to the investment management firms.
WMI 2014 offers money management firms an organized, practical way of meeting, presenting to and networking with Family Office investors pre-screened for interest in their strategies, in an intimate business environment.
- 2013 Family Office Participant
Wealth Management Insights invites a select group of pre-qualified Family Office investors to attend: investment committee members, and those directly employed by Family Office investment committees to conduct due diligence on their behalf.
These participants receive a full participation package that covers their travel, hotel accommodation and meal expenses for the Summit from February 24th through February 26, 2014, at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
In return, the Family Office investors provide information about what strategies they have allocated to, which they are considering allocating to, and the strategies in which they have no interest. Wealth Management Insights uses this information to help schedule the most relevant 1:1 meetings between investors and money managers. Further, the Family Office investors agree to attend all pre-arranged 1:1 appointments with money management firm representatives. This ensures a time- and cost-effective and quality peer-to-peer experience for all attendees.
So, Family Office investors get to learn of, and initiate due diligence on, new alternative investment firms and strategies, and the money management firms have the opportunity to introduce themselves to key target prospects.
