Digital Assets Report

OPERATIONS FOR ALTERNATIVES BRINGS TOGETHER OPERATIONS PROFESSIONALS FROM HEDGE FUNDS, PRIVATE EQUITY AND ‘40 ACT FUNDS TO ALLOW THE SHARING OF BEST PRACTICES.
 
OFA is an opportunity for senior executives to exchange, engage and learn about the most pressing issues of the day. If it is happening in the investment management industry it is being discussed at OFA.
 
We’ve got the basics covered – regulatory and tax issues, asset flow trends, ODD best practices, and security issues. But we’re also directly addressing the issues that must be addressed now, to ensure the future health and growth of your fund. This includes finding and incorporating new asset types, attracting and onboarding new investors and addressing forthcoming data reporting standards. 

 
Why attend?
 
Culture of Compliance
Like it or not, the regulatory environment is unlikely to loosen, and it's incumbent upon your entire team to embrace a culture of compliance throughout your firm.
OFA will provide you with insight and knowledge from others grappling with the same challenges, to help you create that culture of compliance that is appreciated by investors, and demanded by regulators.
 
Manage Threats
It's not enough to understand the threats against your firm from cyber criminals. You need a strategy for not only thwarting potential attacks, but a firm-wide plan for assessing, responding, and documenting your firm's approach to managing cyber security. It's not just your firm's assets or customer information at risk–regulators have made cyber security planning a key element of their exams for 2015 and beyond.
OFA will provide you with expert insight and peer knowledge to help you prepare.

Keeping Existing Investors, and Attracting New Ones
With some large investors shifting their allocations away from alternatives, funds must address key operational issues, such as fees, expense allocation, and reporting, to ensure that their current investors continue to allocate to them. Similarly, some funds will need to embrace new product types or investors to ensure continuing operations.
OFA's panels of fund operations professionals will specifically address these pressing issues that simply cannot be ignored by the alternative fund industry.

 
On February 9-11, 2015, learn from and network with your operations colleagues and counterparts across hedge funds, private equity, and mutual funds at Operations for Alternatives.
