One highlight of the conference is the popular "AIF Factor", a competition where 5 shortlisted funds are given the floor for a 3-minute pitch, to present their proposition to 250+ professional investors and managers. Delegates then cast their votes, appointing the most convincing pitch as the 2019 AIF Factor winner. The competition is open to all funds regardless of size, location, investment strategies. ABN AMRO's AIF is a non-profit event, attendees are invited to make a donation to one of the proposed charities/foundations when registering. This year, Alternatives for Children and Khazana Foundation are being supported.
