    (1) Fundamentals of Alternative Investments


    This session will identify detailed aspects of alternative investments. We will examine typical varieties of offering structures and the corresponding related potential benefits and risks associated with investments in alts. Examples of topics covered will be the investment process of sales, suitability and required disclosures. Panelists will identify how certain rules and regulations apply to the various types of offerings, and why due diligence is an absolute critical part of the process to identify potential risks. Alternative investments cover a wide variety of industry sectors, including but not limited to real estate, energy, equipment and commercial debt. Because they have a low correlation to traditional asset classes, they provide excellent diversification to a portfolio heavy in stocks when positioned correctly. Generally speaking, alts are traditionally illiquid and difficult to value; thus, considered a riskier proposition, but they absolutely have their place in an investment portfolio. This session will also address the legal, tax and regulatory issues surrounding alt offerings with some of the best minds in the industry!

Special Guests


Earvin "Magic" Johnson

Keynote Speaker
Earvin “Magic” Johnson is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Magic Johnson Enterprises, an investment conglomerate valued at an estimated $1 billion dollars. Since retiring from the NBA over 20 years ago, the legendary basketball star has morphed into a business powerhouse who has dedicated his life to leaving a positive impact in underserved urban communities. Having left the basketball court for the boardroom, Johnson parlayed the skills and tenacity he acquired on the court into a winning formula for successful business ventures.
For the last two decades Johnson has consistently turned heads with his unprecedented partnerships. In his early years as an entrepreneur, he forged an alliance with Sony Pictures to develop Magic Johnson Theatres. In 1998, he teamed with Starbucks to become the only franchisee in the history of the company, acquiring and eventually selling 125 stores in a lucrative move which further solidified his position in the business world. Both ventures served as catalysts for redevelopment in urban communities, and are widely recognized as the corporate blueprint for engagement and success with urban consumers across America.
Still a commanding presence in the sports world, he made history in 2012 when he became co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, a Major League Baseball franchise that was purchased for an astronomical $2 billion dollars. It was the highest purchase price for any professional sports team at the time. He also co-owns the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA and Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Football Club.
Johnson continues to expand his influence through a number of other investments. He currently has controlling interests in EquiTrust, a $14 billion financial services company, ASPiRE, an African-American television network, and SodexoMAGIC, a food service and facilities management company.
The Lansing native is constantly evolving and remaining relevant in a dynamic digital age by broadening his scope into infrastructure and technology. Through a newly formed fund, Johnson is investing more than $1 billion dollars on infrastructure improvement in the United States. His technology endeavors include the acceptance of a board position with Square, a mobile payment company that supports small businesses and entrepreneurs. Likewise, operating under the philosophy that true success is making others successful, he is also one of the leading investors in a number of minority-owned tech companies that include Jopwell, a diversity and hiring recruiting platform, and Walker & Co Brands, a company that develops health and beauty products for people of color. He is deliberate in his investment strategy to bring positive impact to the community.
Johnson also serves as Chairman and Founder of the Magic Johnson Foundation, where his commitment to transform Urban America continues through HIV/AIDS Awareness and Educational Programs. Remaining true to his humble Lansing beginnings, he is unwaveringly dedicated to working with major corporations and partners to bring jobs and high-quality products and services to underserved communities.

Hotel & Travel

All conference events will be held at ARIA Resort & Casino, Las Vegas.

ARIA Resort & Casino
3730 South Las Vegas Boulevard
Las Vegas, NV 89158

Please note: The ADISA hotel block is almost sold out, and our conference rate and/or complimentary rooms are in very limited supply.

If you are a Broker-Dealer, RIA or Family Office, you may be waitlisted or there may not be discounted rooms available, depending on your arrival/departure. 

If you are a Sponsor or Affiliate, you can still book through this link for a limited time: https://book.passkey.com/go/ADISAM18.

If you would like assistance with the hotel, please contact Erin Balcerzak at ebalcerzak@adisa.org.

BEWARE of hotel reservation scams: There are several hotel reservation “pirates” who somehow get prior year meeting attendance lists and then approach past attendees to reserve their hotel rooms and in so doing either steal credit card information or broker a non-refundable reservation with extra junk fees. Please note that ADISA does not call or send out emails to individuals to solicit hotel reservations. You should use only the link provided in our reservation system to book your room. Please contact us with any questions.
