ABN AMRO Contest Lets Fund Managers Pitch To Investors

Dec 16 2013 | 12:08pm ET

If you've ever dreamed of pitching your fund to the Amsterdam Investors Forum, ABN AMRO Clearing would like to help make that dream a reality.

The firm is holding its second annual 'The AIF Factor' competition to choose six lucky alternative funds—active or prospective, regardless of size, location, investment target or style—to pitch to more than 200 institutional investors, funds of funds and high-net-worth individuals at the third Amsterdam Investors Forum (also organized by ABN AMRO Clearing) on February 12, 2014.

The AIF Factor was first launched last year and over 100 funds entered the competition. Participants are required to register a submission via the event website by January 15, 2014. Shortlisted funds will make a three-minute pitch at the forum and delegates, including a panel of seed investors, will vote for the winner.

“As we witnessed at last year's event, The AIF Factor competition provides a unique platform for alternative investment funds of every kind to gain exceptional exposure with leading alternative investors. We are looking for submissions which demonstrate real clarity in their investment proposition, as well as compelling entrepreneurship,” said Gildas Le Treut, global head of prime clearing at ABN AMRO Clearing.

The event will support Alternatives 4 Children, an industry-related charity based in the Netherlands.
