About the Event: 

IMN is excited to return to the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, September 6-7, for Total Alts 2018, and we are happy to continue to be the mirror for a changing and dynamic industry as we include new voices and timely investment opportunities.
 
2018 has been a heady time in the markets, with interest rates in a rising trend, volatility creeping up and international relations taking unexpected turns. Adding to the narrative of unpredictability, cryptocurrencies have become front and center for investors.
 
Total Alts reflects the realities of an unpredictable market, investors’ evolving interests and provides the ideal backdrop for market participants to debate the shape of things to come.
 
This year’s sessions fall under two categories: Alpha Strategies and Alternative Innovations, with each reflecting the robustness and diversity of the ever expanding alternative investment industry.

Alpha Strategies focus on how investors can generate returns in the public markets. Sessions include: Three Cheers for Vol!,  2018, 2019, 2020: A Near Term Outlook on Credit Investing  and  Risk & Return: Using Niche Investments to Generate Alpha.

Alternative Innovation takes a closer look at today’s most discussed (and often misunderstood) investment opportunities and aims to give investors clearer and more actionable insights. Sessions include: Beyond Bitcoin Futures: Welcome to the Mainstream, Invest & Build: Lessons for Entrepreneurs & VC’s and ICO’s & Funding: Trends & Outlook.

Presentations taking place on our mainstage merge these two themes in recognition of the increasingly fine line between mainstream investments and their abstract counterparts.
