ABN AMRO Clearing launches competition for 6 alternative investment funds to pitch at Amsterdam Investors Forum 2014

Saturday, December 14, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - 6 alternative funds are again being offered the chance to pitch to more than 200 institutional investors, funds of funds and high net worth individuals at the third Amsterdam Investors Forum (AIF), organised by ABN AMRO Clearing on 12 February 2014.

‘The AIF Factor’ was first launched last year and over 100 funds entered the competition. It is open to all funds regardless of size, location, investment targets or style – active or prospective. Participants are required to register a submission via the event website http://www.aif.events.abnamro.nl/aif-factor by 15 January 2014. Shortlisted funds will make a 3 minute pitch at the Forum and delegates, including a panel of seed investors, will vote for the winner..

“As we witnessed at last year‟s event, „The AIF Factor’ competition provides a unique platform for alternative investment funds of every kind to gain exceptional exposure with leading alternative investors. We are looking for submissions which demonstrate real clarity in their investment proposition, as well as compelling entrepreneurship,” commented Gildas Le Treut, Global Head of Prime Clearing at ABN AMRO Clearing.

The AIF returns for a third year and has become the leading alternative investment event in the Netherlands. The event will again be held at ABN AMRO‟s head office at Gustav Mahlerlaan and speakers will include prominent fund managers, investors, allocators and related professionals (full list to be announced in January 2014).

The event is organised together with ABN AMRO Private Banking‟s Alternatives & Funds team and will support Alternatives 4 Children, an industry related charity based in the Netherlands.

“This event provides a strategic meeting place for institutional investors and alternative investment managers and draws upon the long history of alternative investments in the Netherlands. The main focus is to provide investors with an insight into the latest market developments in investment strategy and allocations. With a range of first class speakers, representing some of the greatest investment minds in the business, we want attendees to get a real feeling for where the investment opportunities are in 2014,” said Marc de Kloe, Head of Alternatives & Funds at ABN AMRO Private Banking.
