The BAI, as the lobby association for Alternative Investments in Germany, intends to bring participants at the BAI Alternative Investor Conference together to exchange their know-how and to contribute it to the comprehension of Alternative Investment in public. Alternative asset classes play an increasing role in the portfolio of institutional investors because of their positive qualities, for instance the risk minimisation or the higher return. As the acceptance has also grown in Germany, institutional investors invest more and more in Alternative Investments.

In particular, the conference offers an outstanding opportunity to exchange views on Alternative Investments with  institutional investors, but also asset managers and service providers and other interested participants

Workshop and dinner for institutional investors*

Institutional endinvestors (insurances, endowments, pension funds, pension plans, single family offices) report in the investors' workshop in the morning of conference day 2 about their experiences with Alternative Investments. The participants, which are solely institutional end investors, have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers and discuss them within the group.

Our established investors’ dinner, which takes place on conference day 1 in an exclusive location, together with our key note speakers, is a further opportunity to intensify the dialogue amongst each other.

*Endinvestors are organizations that exclusively invest on their own behalf in Alternative Investments and do not sell products to others.
