Now in its 17th year, Hedge Funds World Asia 2014 is back to bring together Asia’s leading family offices, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and private banks together with the world’s leading hedge funds, fund of funds and asset managers in order to discuss, debate and formulate solutions to the key challenges affecting the Asian alternative investment industry.
Frontier’s annual conference is one of the largest events running in Mongolia. This conference serves as a platform of bringing in people from the Government, key industries' players, financial institutions and global investors; where they get a chance to share their thoughts about various economic and socio-political developments throughout the year.
As one of our Platinum Series Events, we have designed this investment trends conference to meet the needs of money managers, senior pension fund officers and trustees who prefer smaller, more structured programs. By limiting this event to select managers, participants will be able to more carefully examine a distinct set of topics specifically tailored to their interests.
As the economy and the real estate investment climate has improved, financing has continued to be a challenge for all investors. This has resulted in many developers using alternative financing channels like CROWDFUNDING which has greatly increased in interest and growth. To meet the educational and networking needs of the real estate investment community regarding these newer methods of alternative financing IMN has constructed an agenda for the real estate developer who is looking to finance their projects, the CROWDFUNDING portal, as well as other the service providers in this marketplace.

* More Banks Reported Newly Late Commercial Real Estate Loans, $117MM Increase*
* As we enter the 6th year of this cycle REO activity is increasing**
As REO activity continues to increase even as the current real estate climate changes from distress and workouts to origination and getting the money out IMNs extensive market research has put together a new program focusing on the credit issues surrounding the whole cycle of a loan, from initial credit evaluation, to risk management and loan review then workouts and we are confident origination, credit, risk management and special asset executives will attend and take away an invaluable amount of new information from our updated program.
IMN's series of Bank Real Estate Forums continues to be the only place where Special Assets, Credit, Loan Review, Risk Management, Special Servicers, REO & C-level executives can meet to discuss the latest CRE credit and workout issues. With 275-400 registered for our previous 16 Bank Real Estate forums, including 100+ credit and workout executives, IMN is excited to bring this event and its brand new agenda back to the West coast.
A deal-sourcing event, where investors meet potential targets and potential acquirers for their businesses and issuers share best practices with their peers to generate new funding opportunities. Activity in the specialty finance sector continues to grow, and BDCs in particular are raising substantial amounts of capital. With the rise of peer-to-peer lending, money is pouring into unsecured consumer finance space, and new technologies and strategies are being developed to facilitate this deadflow. Increased competition is compressing yields, and encouraging many investors to look at off-the-run asset classes. Regulatory uncertainty is keeping cost of funds high and market participation on edge.
On the stage of the global finance, where the shadow of the crisis is still lingering and its repercussions are being felt all over the world, regulators along with financial institutions strive for the harmonisation of the still fragmented post-trade market. Market participants are steering their way through the complex matrix of various regulatory initiatives tinted with new market entries and increasing competition to assure their position and make the best use possible of the tightening obligations. Apart from roadmaps and guidelines that assist in the understanding of the complicated market infrastructure, real-time tools and automated IT structures are also easing the regulatory pressure.
