    AIFM Directive 2010 Conference

    Central London

    Dear Spotlight Subscriber,

    Preqin is delighted to have arranged a special invitation and 20% discount for Preqin Spotlight readers who would like to

    attend Private Equity Forums AIFM Directive 2010 Conference in London, on Tuesday 30 November 2010. Please quote ref.

    PreqinAIFM book your place for just 364.40 Member of trade body (RRP 455.50) / 396.00 Non-member (RRP 495.00).

    The AIFMD is still not a done deal and a number of issues remain subject to negotiation and are critical to the alternative assets

    industry, including but not limited to; the disproportionate burden the disclosure regime would place on SMEs, the third country

    issue and the implication article 27a would have on management buy-outs. Everyone engaged in the sector will need to

    become familiar with the details and likely impact of the new legislation.

    Through company case studies, in-depth presentations and panel discussions, Private Equity Forum's AIFM Directive 2010

    Conference will provide you with clarification on the next series of changes to ensure you are aware of the necessary key

    actions and deadlines.

    Investment consultants are an integral part of the investment process

    in the alternatives space. They can be a necessary and useful

    intermediary or advisor on an investors dealings across an array

    of asset types, providing services such as manager search and

    selection, asset allocation and investment policy development, and

    performance monitoring. They are ever present in all regions of theworld and advise a diverse range of institutional investors, with client

    types ranging from those with relatively small investment portfolios,

    such as high-net-worth individuals and single family offices, to

    those with more complex and larger portfolios, such as insurance

    companies and pension funds.

    Investment consultants perform an important role within the

    alternative assets industry. Investors benefit from the advice and

    guidance their consultants provide, as well as the access they can

    gain through their consultants to specific managers or funds. Fund

    managers can also benefit from establishing relationships with

    consultants as this can be an important step towards garneringcommitments from their clients.

    This article examines some of the vital attributes of the investment

    consulting industry using data from the soon-to-be-released 2011
