The Alternative Investment Forum – Virtual Experience 2020




We’re delighted to announce the continuation of the 12 year running Alternative Investment Forum with the first digital edition in the event series.

The 2020 event will welcome institutional investors from across the globe to discuss investment opportunities in timber and agriculture to diversify their portfolios and achieve healthy returns.

Investors, funds and service providers will enjoy one full day of presentations and live interactive formats. Key themes on the 2020 programme will include resilience of real assets during global crises, sustainable and green investments, the impact of climate change on real assets, the power of new technologies in driving sustainable and greener investments, and more. The dual focus on timber and agriculture enables investors to discover the complimentary role these assets can play in a portfolio and to spot the best ventures available in both.
