Allocators Fund Managers Service Providers

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Context Summits, the leader in the one-on-one conference format for the alternative asset management industry, announced today its first virtual event, Context Summits Virtual Conference. The online event will take place from June 15-19, 2020 through the Context 365 App – the propriety platform launched by Context Summits in October 2019.

Similar to Context Summits’ flagship event, Context Summits Miami, the Context Summits Virtual Conference will allow registered allocators and managers in the alternative investment community to connect and network directly and privately, but through an online platform to help foster relationship building in a challenging climate. Features of the conference include the ability to search and filter on specific allocator and strategy characteristics, message and schedule meetings, and conduct one-on-one video and conference calls.

“We are facing unprecedented times, not only in terms of the volatility in the financial markets but in the uncertainty of our day-to-day caused by Covid-19. Alternatives managers and allocators alike are struggling not only to navigate the current financial challenges but also in working to uncover and identify unique investment opportunities,” said Eric Noll, CEO of Context Summits. “We have made the decision to continue our event series virtually to ensure we are continuing to connect the industry and provide access to opportunities that the current climate may not enable.”

 

Simone Sobel, Managing Director of Investor Relations, added: “In a soon-to-be-released survey that was conducted at our recent Context Summits Miami, we learned that 40 percent of attending allocators believe that ‘finding unique products’ is their biggest pain point when searching for new strategies. Context Summits is committed to addressing this challenge through a face-to-face format or through a virtual conference.”

The Context Summits Virtual Conference will be offered as a complimentary offering for qualified allocators, there is a fee for investment managers looking to participate. Additional details can be found at www.contextsummits.com.
