MIAMI, Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- For the eighth consecutive year, the Florida Alternative Investment Association (FLAIA) will conduct its popular "Global Macro Perspective" conference for money managers and other stakeholders in the alternative investment world.
The daylong "A Global Macro Perspective 2019," which is co-sponsored by the international law firm Greenberg Traurig, is expected to attract money managers from Florida, New York, Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean. This year, it will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2018, from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. at Greenberg Traurig's offices at 333 SE 2nd Ave., in downtown Miami.
The conference is part of the association's long-standing effort to help fund managers, investors and family office leaders identify macroeconomic trends, geopolitical risks and where to allocate money next year. The event immediately precedes Art Basel week, the world's largest modern art show, and will give participants an opportunity to network with peers from around the world.
"At the midpoint of the Trump Administration, we have seen a surge of initiatives such as tax reform, trade agreement revisions and overhauls in foreign policy that have directly impacted money management decisions worldwide," said Michael Corcelli, Founder and Chairman of FLAIA, and Managing Partner of Miami-based Alexander Alternative Capital LLC.
The discussion will include but it is not limited to the following topics: the revised North American Free Trade Agreement; the U.S.-China trade war, interest rates, midterm U.S. elections, energy, blockchain and the tokenization of assets.
The session on blockchains will look at their impact on the global economy and examine the changes and developments that have emerged in the regulation of cryptocurrencies over the past year.
Other critical agenda issues include the impact on portfolios of trade agreement revisions, rising interest rates and climbing energy prices.
FLAIA has confirmed the appearance of speakers from some of the leading banks, investment houses and research groups in the financial industry.
