BlackRock’s Ted Logan and Mark Everitt to join Lausanne Summit
Ted Logan, director, and Mark Everitt, managing director at BlackRock will take on the issue of alternative investments within the Ucits framework, when they speak at the upcoming InvestmentEurope Pan-European Summit Lausanne 2016, 19-21 April.
While uncorrelated returns have become even more important to source in the ongoing investment environment, it is not necessarily a straighforward process to identify and manage such assets. As such, Logan and Everitt will outline how diversified exposure to alpha sources through careful manager selection can help investors.
