We are delighted to introduce the ninth edition of the London School of Economics SU Alternative Investments Conference (AIC).

The 2015 AIC promises to provide a dynamic forum for education and networking between leading luminaries from the hedge fund and private equity industries and the brightest students, from undergraduates to PhD candidates, who travel from as far afield as China and California to attend the Conference.

Jointly organised by the LSE SU Alternative Investments Society and the LSE Financial Markets Group, the AIC combines the academic excellence of its namesake institution, the LSE, with the professionalism and prestige of the attending industry professionals and student delegates.

We are most grateful to all of our speakers and sponsors, both new and returning, without whom this event would not be possible. 

Conference planning begins many months before the event itself even kicks off. Team AIC has been hard at work not long after the success of last year's Conference and we would like to thank all of the team members for the long hours and enthusiasm put into the organising process. 

It is our hope that you will emerge from this unique two-day Conference with an understanding of and an excitement about the hedge fund and private equity industries. We hope to offer an exceptional educational and networking experience with the idea that, as the next generation of business leaders, this Conference can be a positive force in shaping your future career in this industry.

We hope to see you at the Conference in January!
