The Alternative Investment Forum will be returning to London in October for the 9th year in a row, offering investors insight into alternative investment options. This year the forum will focus on the agriculture sector, presenting the opportunities available to investors willing to think outside the box.

The dynamic two day event will be packed with 1:1 meetings and in-depth presentations, with key themes including sustainable and impact investing, the impact of climate change and liquidity risks.

As the post-crisis years continue to drive investors towards a broader range of more innovative ways to invest, both timberland and agriculture are considered to be real assets.

The forum will take place across two events, the Timber Invest Europe Forum and the Global Agro Invest Forum. Both bring together major pension funds, family offices, sovereign wealth funds, endowments, insurance companies and charities to discuss the unique investment opportunities presented by the sectors.

Anne-Marie Mongan, the event’s producer, said:

“The Alternative Investment Forum is a unique platform for investors to discover how timber and agriculture assets can fit into their wider portfolio. The Forum enables both new and seasoned investors in this space to conduct 1:1 meetings with Funds, consultants, forestry management companies and other service providers who can help them meet their investment goals.”

Participants in the 2017 programme include the World Bank, FAO of the United Nations, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and many more. For more information click here. To register click here and use priority code MK-MP to secure your place.
