OFA 2016 will bring together operations professionals from hedge funds, private equity, and '40 Act Funds to share best practices, proven strategies, and practical solutions for developing a top-to-bottom culture of compliance and operational efficiencies.

You know the challenges:

  • Enhanced regulatory oversight
  • Increasingly stringent compliance requirements
  • Heightened scrutiny from investors
  • Escalating risks from both inside and outside your organization
  • Issues arising from market and political forces

OFA covers it all!

Over the course of two days of interactive sessions, panel discussions, keynote addresses, and unparalleled networking opportunities, OFA will offer attendees direct access to industry experts who will provide specific, practical strategies for managing global and regional regulatory challenges, operational hurdles, investor relationships, market issues, and much more.

Bringing together fund COOs, investors, and industry experts, Operations for Alternatives is a single event focused on providing the alternative fund industry with the tools needed to be successful in an evolving economic and regulatory landscape.

This is the event that the entire industry looks forward to every year and that your peers will be talking about for months afterward – make sure that you do not miss out!
