The only forum for the alternative funds industry in the Netherlands

The conference, on 17 February 2016, will mark the fifth time that the Amsterdam Investor Forum has been hosted by ABN AMRO Clearing at the bank’s Amsterdam headquarters. 

The full-day event is currently the only forum for the alternative funds industry in the Netherlands. With several high-level panel discussions throughout the day, the event will also feature advice on setting up a fund, dealing with regulations, how to access investor assets, and the importance of marketing.

Delphine Amzallag is the European head of relationship management at ABN AMRO Clearing Bank in London. “We expect to have a lot of regional representation at the Amsterdam Investor Forum,” she told the financial site Hedge Week. “It is a great forum for them to discover new managers and investment opportunities.”

An important panel discussion at the forum will be hosted by the organisation 100 Women in Hedge Funds, which now has over 15,000 active members. The panel will offer unique insights from a selection of leading women on their journey to the top of the industry, as well as current market insights.
