    (3) Fundamentals and Best Practices of Alts

    This session will identify detailed aspects of alternative investments. We will examine typical varieties of offering structures and corresponding related potential benefits and risks associate 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 an 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!

    (6) Account On-Boarding: Digital Solutions Faster, Cleaner and No Paper

The benefits around reduction of NIGOs, the speed of transaction, creating the latest dynamically generated document and the raw data used by other systems. That discussion went from an idea, to a prototype, and now live platforms currently supporting business today. The challenges associated with moving paper documents during 2020 reinforced the need for this technology to conduct business.
