Introduction and Overview:
In fulfillment of its mission to promote informed discussion about pertinent topics operational risk, the IAFE's Operational Risk Committee is continuing its exploration of key trends in financial services.
More specifically the panel proposes to explore the implications and implementation of the spread of alternative strategies into the retail market - a trend sometimes referred to as the "retailization".
Despite the challenging environment generally in financial services, assets under management continues to grow in the alternative investments sector. Industry experts anticipate that the growth of alterative investments will continue to outpace that of traditional long only investments. A key driver of this growth is retailization of hedge funds.
