www.iglobalforum.com

Description:  iGlobal Forum is pleased to announce the upcoming Navigating Alternative Direct and Co-Investing Strategies, taking place in New York on October 5th, 2016. Direct investments have become increasingly popular on all sides of the investing table with fewer fees, greater transparency, and the opportunity to work on larger deals through partnerships. As this trend develops, available opportunities and fund structures are evolving to meet this newfound demand. This seminar will provide targeted, pre-arranged networking meetings to develop future business partnerships, in addition to two engaging workshops covering the various investor perspectives, the process for working out partnerships within these newly structured deals, and how to get started in a developing, relationship-focused industry. At this seminar, you will meet and network directly with senior-level representatives from pension plans, family offices, endowments, foundations, private equity firms, insurance companies, investment banks, asset managers, mezzanine lenders, operating partners, and research and advisory firms.

 Hedge Fund Compliance
Date: October 6 - 7, 2016

Organized By:
OFA
www.hfcompliance.com

Description:  Hedge funds have never been under greater regulatory scrutiny then they are now. Add to that the evolving examination and compliance landscape and the ever-increasing risks of cyber-attacks, and it is clear that hedge funds must have in place comprehensive compliance programs, or else expose themselves to severe fines, costly litigation, and worse. That is why the creators of Operations for Alternatives (OFA) have developed Hedge Fund Compliance, the premier forum focused on regulatory, examination, and compliance issues for hedge funds.



 ROCKTOBERFEST-CHICAGO
Date: October 6, 2016
Location: City Winery Chicago

Organized By:
ALTSO
www.altso.org

Description:  ALTSO provides free prosthetic limbs and corrective surgery to children suffering from traumatic or congenital limb disabilities in the developing world - at an average cost of only $250 per child. And we stand beside our kids all the way until they turn 18.

The average ALTSO family earns about $3 a day, and lives approximately 1 to 3 miles away from the closest school. With no access to transportation, if a child can't walk, they simply can't go to school. If they can't go to school, they can't get a job. If they can't get a job, they can't sustain a family. This is the reality for children with untreated limb disabilities in the developing world.

Now in its 5th year, ALTSO's signature benefit - Rocktoberfest-Chicago - unites 500 professionals from the alternative investments and related financial services industries for a night of rock & roll and acoustic music in support of ALTSO's mission.



 Duxes Automotive Aftermarket Summit 2016
Date: October 12 - 14, 2016
Location: The Longemont Shanghai, China

Organized By:
Duxes
www.duxes-events.com

Description:  Compared with the profit structure of the automobile industry chain in mature markets, the automotive aftermarket normally accounts for about 65 percent while China's only makes up less than 30 percent. This can mostly be contributed to there being large room for improvement in China's aftermarket. Car ownership in China amounted to 172 million in 2015 and the average age for vehicles was around 4 years. Along with the increase in the age of car and China's position as the largest market for new cars in the world, its aftermarket potential will be massive in the future. It is indicated in statistics that in 2014 the market value in China was 638 billion RMB and in 2015 it nearly reached 800 billion RMB and is estimated to surpass a trillion RMB in 2017.
