BULLETIN : Dubai powerhouse AIM Summit brings alternative investments, private debt to inaugural European conference in Geneva, Preqin reports 69 hedge fund launches, 5.40% average performance in Q1 2019

 

In 2015 Dubai based Dalma Capital launched a conference series - the AIM Summit - which has since won a strong reputation as a high-quality event in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The AIM Summit was spun out from Dalma as an independent company with a dedicated team and is expanding this year internationally with their first Geneva conference on June 12 at the Hotel President Wilson. Established in 2011, Dalma Capital is a key player in the MENA region as a global alternative investment platform, fund manager and accelerator for alpha generation with an inherent edge in emerging investment strategies and markets.

"While there were quite a few conferences happening in the Middle East capturing various different sectors within the financial services industry, we found that nothing was focused predominantly on alternatives (Hedge Funds,

Private Equity, Venture Capital, Private Debt), and so Dalma launched the first conference in Dubai, along with the support of AIMA Association, and then quickly expanded to Abu Dhabi. We are now in our fifth year organizing high-quality events - Abu Dhabi in the first quarter and Dubai in the last quarter of each year - and are excited to bring the AIM Summit to Geneva in June", said Raha Moradi, Managing Partner of AIM Summit. "Looking at the delegates of past AIM Summits in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, we noticed that a lot of our delegates and speakers come from various different markets internationally. In fact, 80 of our speakers in Dubai flew into town for the conference, predominantly from the European region. So, we said, ‘Why don't we take AIM Summit to Europe?' And Geneva came to mind because family offices are one of our primary key target audiences along with private banks and private investors, on top of institutions and sovereign wealth funds."
