ABN AMRO Clearing competition for alternative funds to pitch at 2013 Amsterdam forum
Six alternative funds are being offered the chance to pitch to more than 200 institutional investors, funds of funds and high net worth individuals at the second Amsterdam Investors Forum (AIF), organised by ABN AMRO Clearing on 13 February 2013.
The competition is open to all funds regardless of size, location, investment targets or style – active or prospective.
Participants are required to send a maximum 150 word submission to firstname.lastname@example.org by 22 December 2012.
Selected funds will make a three minute pitch at the Forum and delegates will vote for the 1st winner of ‘The AIF Factor’.
“This is a unique opportunity for alternative investment funds of every kind to present to a who’s who of the Dutch alternative investment scene and some of the largest specialist international investors. We are looking for submissions which are compelling, provocative and show entrepreneurship – what makes your fund stand out,” comments Jan-Bart de Boer, chief commercial officer of ABN AMRO Clearing.
The Amsterdam Investors Forum returns for a second year, and will again be held at ABN AMRO’s head office at Gustav Mahlerlaan.
ABN AMRO Clearing has a long history of partnering with start-ups as well as established alternative investment vehicles, and in providing them with integrated solutions for their execution, clearing, custody and financing.
The event is also supported by ABN AMRO Private Banking’s Alternatives & Funds team.
Interest in alternative investment among Dutch investors remains strong and the Netherlands is the first EU member to adopt the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), according to Marc de Kloe, head of Alternatives & Funds at ABN AMRO Private Banking.
