Defying gravity: the future of alternative investments in exceptional times

Now in its fourth year, CAIS brings together leading thinkers and decision makers from different segments of the global alternatives industry. The Summit has quickly grown to become one of the most influential discussion forums within the alternative investment space.

This year's theme, "Defying Gravity: The Future of Alternative Investments in Exceptional Times," will explore a wide range of topics, such as the impact of central bank policy, opportunities in credit and infrastructure investing, and a discussion on how artificial intelligence and blockchain technology are changing investment operations.

In order to successfully chart these turbulent waters one effectively needs to defy gravity.
