BALA CYNWYD, Pa., Sept. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Context Capital Partners, a leading alternative investment specialist firm, today announced that Gary D. Cohn will keynote Context Summits Miami 2019, scheduled for January 30-February 1, 2019 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel.

On the heels of the highly successful Context Leadership Summit Las Vegas 2018, Context is excited to announce a full day of thought-leadership content at the flagship Miami conference. The full day of content will feature many of the world's top investors, policymakers and other well-known names in finance discussing the current economic and financial landscape. The thought-leadership content will be followed by two days of one-on-one meetings, combining the industry's best content with the largest capital introduction conference in the world.
Context Summits Miami 2019 will bring together alternative investment managers and allocators representing over $4 trillion in cumulative assets under management for three days of focused meetings and networking opportunities. More than 2,000 attendees from 36 countries will participate in over 11,000 prearranged meetings.
"Based on data obtained from our 2018 Summits in Miami and Europe, almost 70% of U.S. investors and nearly 60% of European investors said they plan to increase allocations to alternative investments," said Ron Biscardi, CEO of Context Capital Partners. "Today's volatile markets are continuing to create a strong demand for alternative investment strategies, and our objective is to give investors and allocators the opportunity to walk away from the Miami Summit with the knowledge of how to navigate these markets in uncertain times."
"We are focused on continuing the momentum from previous Summits to establish Miami as the preeminent hybrid event that offers alternative investment allocators and managers and other industry participants both high-quality thought-leadership content and an opportunity to conduct productive one-on-one meetings," Mark Salameh, CEO of Context Summits, added. "Hosting world-class speakers, such as Gary Cohn, ensures investors and allocators continue to be exposed to the most up-to-date information from highly-experienced individuals within the industry."
