ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS CONFERENCE
The LSE SU Alternative Investments Conference (AIC) was founded by a group of committed and entrepreneurial undergraduate students in 2005 who aimed to create a forum for rich dialogue and debate between the world’s leading figures within alternative investments, and students keen to learn more about the industry.
Since then, the AIC has become the world’s largest student conference on Hedge Funds, Private Equity, and Venture Capital. Recognized worldwide, the Alternative Investments Conference brings together over 40 senior-level industry luminaries with 320 student delegates from many of the world’s leading educational institutions, in order to educate the next generation of business leaders.
In the view of COVID-19, a physical conference is not feasible nor responsible for all speakers, sponsors, or delegates involved. As such, for the 2020/21 academic year AIC will shift to an online-only format. High-quality discussions and insights from founders and executives of leading alternative investments firms will be posted virtually in a webinar series dubbed “AIC Conversations”.*
* This is an interim solution until life normalises and physical conferences can be held again.
