Don’t Miss Summit 2018!
January 24, 2018 | Beth Glavosek | Blue Vault
Blue Vault’s fourth annual Broker Dealer Educational Summit will be held Monday, March 12, 2018 – Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at The Alfond Inn, Winter Park, Florida.
The Summit gives leading alternative investment product sponsors, including those offering nontraded REITs, BDCs, and Closed-End Funds, Interval Funds and Private Offerings, a platform to demonstrate their investment strategy and expertise for the products they offer and answer questions posed by the industry’s leading Broker Dealers.
“As always, our goal for the Summit is transparency, education, and due diligence,” says Stacy Chitty, Managing Partner for Blue Vault.
The Blue Vault Summit offers multiple opportunities to share valuable information. Sponsors have a forum in which to educate the Broker Dealer community about their current open offerings. Broker Dealers have the opportunity to stay informed on the strategy and performance of those open offerings, as well as offerings already closed to investors. In today’s post-DOL environment, sponsors are becoming more creative in how they address challenges like fees and liquidity, and the Summit provides a great opportunity to explain how they’re structuring new products.
Chitty says that Blue Vault brings together these leading players at the Summit in an effort to create robust dialogue. The agenda will include sponsor presentations, private Broker Dealer discussion time, panel discussions, and dine arounds. “We believe it’s fundamentally important to create an environment where serious information can be exchanged, hard questions can be asked and discussed, and healthy conversation can be facilitated,” Chitty says. “That’s what the Blue Vault Summit is all about.”
I subscribe to Blue Vault to keep up with the sponsors and their wholesalers! The analysis keeps me up to date with the various portfolios and the way they are managed, including the differences between them.
