Here is the agenda for this panel from the Milken Conference that features distressed asset investing guru Wilbur Ross:The world of alternative investments is becoming increasingly complex, stratified and varied as investors seek protection against market swings. What are the emerging alternatives for hard-to-value assets? Will there be a continued exit from private equity toward index products, structured credit and commodities, which might have the advantage of greater liquidity? As demand rises for offbeat assets, will returns continue to decline? How long will quantitative easing fuel growth in REITs? Will shifts in the carry trade distort alternative investment markets and returns? Should diversification be based on the subsets of the asset class or the strategies of intermediaries that manage them in hedge funds, ETFs and index funds? This panel will explore the outlook for alternative investments in a prolonged low-interest-rate environment.
