Alternative investment began to gain traction in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. As a lot of money was released on the market, funds were competitively attracted to alternative assets and led to good performance, so that type of investment was continuously repeated. Hence, alternative investment is now a "mainstream", no longer a "substitute" of investment.

The GAIC conference seeks for answers on global alternative investment and we will discuss on the current status and prospects of global alternative investment in the period of economic transition, and innovative alternative investment skills.

Accordingly, the conference is expected to become a platform to connect large investment institutions (LP) including domestic pension funds, banks, and insurance to overseas management companies (GPs) which are seeking to expand to the Korean market.
