 Healthcare Real Estate Investment Opportunities Summit 2015
Date: January 8, 2015
Location: Park Lane Hotel, NY

Organized By:
iGlobal Forum

Description:  iGlobal Forum is pleased to announce the upcoming Healthcare Real Estate Investment Opportunities Summit 2015, due to take place on January 8th, 2015 in New York. This one-day forum will focus on the macroeconomic trends and the effects they have had on real estate investments and developments within the healthcare sector. Changes in the healthcare policy over the last year have opened the door for healthcare reform as we have never seen before. As hospitals are now struggling to support the new need for their burgeoning insured patient population, capital from REIT and private equity investors is helping to consolidate, specialize, and develop the medical industry. These partnerships are redirecting reform within the healthcare industry over the next several years.



 Public Funds Summit
Date: January 12 - 14, 2015
Location: Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, AZ

Organized By:
Opal

Description:  This year's event will draw focus to the topic of reform in the pension state and how funding policy and goals will change to address those concerns. Concerns of funding liabilities for beneficiaries in a world of declining returns yet maintaining a balance between the risk/reward paradigms is center in the mind of many trustees and representatives of pension plans around the country. Furthermore, the role of investment and its returns are essential to the concern of meeting obligations to pension members - how investment managers, across various strategies, can aid public pension plans in ensuring a safe future for its members will be key in the conversations at the event. The exchange of ideas both in and out of the session halls is key in educating and identifying viable alternatives that will address these concerns.

Beyond the investment sphere we also address legal issues facing pension plans, ethic regulations and the importance of on-going education for plan sponsors and their fiduciaries. Although attendance is not limited to those in the public sector, the conference takes aim at topics that are of particular relevance to public pension funds. By focusing on an atmosphere of education rather than sales or marketing, the Public Funds Summit provides a unique environment in which members of the public sector can exchange ideas and learn from other delegates, money managers and consultants.

Description:  iGlobal Forum is pleased to announce the 3rd Specialty Finance Summit - a deal-sourcing event, where investors meet potential targets and potential acquirers for their businesses, and issuers share best practice with their peers to generate new funding opportunities. As regulations lessen the universe of what banks can hold and finance, new participants continue to flock to the specialty finance sector. Valuations have picked up dramatically, the right side of the balance sheet is becoming increasingly complex, and uncertainty about the regulators' next moves is keeping investors on their toes. But with all the funds being created to invest in specialty finance opportunities, to what extent is the market really growing, and where do the best opportunities lie?

At the summit you will gain new insights into the critical issues shaping the industry. You will have a unique opportunity to network with around 200 of the leading specialty finance companies, BDCs, private equity firms, hedge funds, wealth management firms, senior lenders and asset managers who are active in this space. - See more at: http://www.iglobalforum.com/conferences-and-events.html?id=114&utm_source=3rd+SF+-+2nd+Blast+&utm_campaign=3rd+SF+-+2nd+blast&utm_medium=email#sthash.mjJDDIRg.dpuf

Infocus International

Description:  As the shipping industry continues to have a highly focus on vessel and offshore exploration and production activities, and as well as well-designed ships often become poorly executed shipbuilding projects due to lack of a comprehensive strategy, there is an increasing focus to help the various parties on such challenges, as conflicts among these stakeholders and failure to employ best practices can cause delays in the project, causing its failure to reach important goals of delivering the rigs/ships on time, within budget and fulfilling technical requirements.

This 5-day highly interactive and practical course will help teams that are involved in such shipbuilding projects to improve their management practices within the shipyard or with vendors, to meet their targets in respect of contracting, delivery of the units or ships in planned time and without problems. It will also focus on best practice technical and commercial solutions during the project to the operational performance of the units to help the commissioning team of engineers representing the owners, shipyard or vendors, to check the construction, outstanding work and the operational performance of the unit.
