What will I achieve

One day at the Summit will deliver value for your entire year.

Navigating the expanding universe of alternative investments has never been more challenging – or potentially rewarding – as it offers the prospect of additional sources of return, diversification, tax savings and the opportunity to put money to work in SMEs and social enterprises.

But advisers still face barriers when it comes to investing their clients’ money because alternatives can be hard to understand, hard to value, illiquid and expensive. It requires time and effort for advisers to get their arms around the whole-of-market and feel confident in their ability to select the right products for the right clients, at the right time.

The Alternative Investment Summit will address that – with a wealth of insight from industry thought-leaders.


Intelligent Partnership is the UK's leading provider of research, reports and training on Alternative Investments.

We aim to help independent financial advisers evidence whole of market research and understanding of this investment sector.

Our reports and training are accredited by the Chartered Insurance Institute(CII) and the Institute of Financial Planning(IFP) and advisers can earn CPD when they engage with our education programmes.

We regularly speak at industry events and organise seminars and conferences on the topic of alternative investments.
