Marcum Alternative Investment Manager Forum to take place on 1 November

The 2017 Marcum Alternative Investment Manager Forum will take place 1 November at the Convene Conference Center in New York City. 

The event is presented by the Alternative Investment Group of Marcum LLP, a national accounting and advisory services firm ranked as a Top Five hedge fund service provider by Institutional Investor’s Alpha Awards. 

The Marcum Alternative Investment Manager Forum is designed to educate fund managers on the verge of SEC registration about how to institutionalise their businesses and attract investors. The agenda will include expert panels moderated by industry professionals, with a focus on educating managers about formalising their processes, properly structuring their operations, and fostering growth and business continuity. Managers will also have the opportunity to network. Security expert Paul Michael Viollis will be the keynote speaker.

“This is our second annual conference for emerging managers, and registration is already outpacing last year’s, which was completely sold out,” says Marcum Partner Dennis J Schall, the conference chair.  “We conceived the Marcum Alternative Investment Manager Forum as a platform to help funds approaching the threshold for SEC registration prepare for the more rigorous regulatory environment.  Panels will cover the importance of having the right technology platform, how to use service providers effectively, making investors comfortable with your business, and how to market your business. Our keynote presenter, Paul Viollis, will discuss security topics that speak to protecting shareholder value.  It will be a jam-packed agenda designed specifically for emerging fund managers.” 

The Marcum Alternative Investment Manager Forum is sponsored by BattleFin (premium platinum), Harney’s (platinum), North Street Global (gold), The Gemini Companies (gold), and other prominent members of the alternative investment community.
