On Wednesday, May 21st, Kweku Obed will be speaking at the 2014 Members Only Series event of the Women Investment Professionals at the offices of Morningstar in Chicago. Kweku will be leading a panel discussion on the increasing trend of investment product convergence — Toward Convergence: The Evolving Roles of Consultants, Investment Managers, and Asset Classes in 2014 and Beyond.
The once distinct worlds of private equity, hedge funds, and mutual funds are converging. Alternative investments that were once offered only to large, sophisticated investors are now available to the masses, and the qualities once thought to be most appropriate for retail investors—transparency, liquidity, and low fees—are now sought by institutions. What is driving this trend? How is this viewed by the plan sponsor community? What are the potential risks? Who will be the beneficiaries of this trend?
