Hedge fund conversions—mutual funds that were once hedge funds—are a response to investor demand for better portfolio management tools. For years, investors needed options beyond traditional long-only, buy-and-hold strategies. Demand for alternative strategies has become even more pronounced recently in an environment where years of easy monetary policy across the globe has likely diminished the potential effectiveness of the traditional 60/40 stock/bond portfolio to weather periods of equity market turmoil. With both the equity and fixed income markets near all-time highs, investors are concerned about the risk in traditional portfolios.
Corporate India witnessed significant deal activity in the September quarter this year, as private equity invested $8.7 billion and M&A transactions attracted $2.1 billion, says a report.
Indian Association of Alternative Investment Funds (IAAIF) is supporting the upcoming event, Family Business Summit India 2017 (FBSI17) scheduled on November 10th at Hotel Shangri La in New Delhi. FBSI17 is being organised by Association of International Wealth Management of India (AIWMI).

Family Owned Businesses have very significant economic impact across the globe. In India, it is estimated that Family Owned firms account for nearly 90% of the industrial output and 27% of employment. However, it is also a fact that approximately 30% of the family firms make it beyond the 2nd generation and only a third of them survive to the 3rd generation.
This inaugural edition of FBSI17 will bring together entrepreneurs from multi-generational businesses and those building a legacy for their next generations to discuss the most pressing issues faced by family business owners and get inspired by some of the most successful family business leaders from across the country.
The Family Business Summit India is based on the concepts of business succession and wealth preservation brought into focus by AIWMI’s flagship event, the Family Office Summit India (FOSI). Beyond that, FBSI17 will also cover important areas of Family Governance, Sustained Togetherness, Competitive Advantage, Investment Trends, Alternative Investments and much more.
This Summit will provide an excellent opportunity to listen and interact with thought leaders and business leaders share their knowledge and experiences. This is an event primarily for business families but is also a learning ground for private bankers, wealth managers and advisors who are looking for a more in-depth understanding of their High Networth clients’ needs and can re-align their strategies according to their requirements.

In a report released by Prequin, women make up just 19 percent of total roles in alternative asset managers. Which means, less than one in five employees at alternative asset management firms are female – and still fewer women hold senior roles or investing positions.
A range of alternative investments be REITs, InvITs, Private Equity (PE) or venture capital funds (VCF), have been on offer among instruments available. Are these instruments finding favour with the investment community?
The Standards Board for Alternative Investments (SBAI), formerly the Hedge Fund Standards Board, an industry body, has developed a standardized figure for expenses and fees that it said would allow investors to better understand, compare and monitor costs across hedge funds and other alternative investment products.
After a record-setting second quarter, new commitments to private capital funds fell over the last three months – but 2017 could still finish on a high note. Prequin, in a report released on Tuesday, 3rd Oct ’17, reported a 31% drop in the fund raised during the third quarter.
