SEATTLE, Wash. – 24 November 2014 – Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute (SWFI) has announced the National Association of Investment Companies (NAIC) as the title sponsor for the SWFI NAIC Institutional Investor Forum 2015 in Miami Beach. The forum is being held on February 9, 2015 at the Fontainebleau Hotel. Sovereign wealth funds, pensions and other institutional investors are constantly on the lookout for emerging private equity firms.
Sovereign wealth funds are intrigued by the enormous value creation being produced by U.S. emerging managers. NAIC represents the largest segment of diverse-owned private equity firms and hedge funds. NAIC member firms are demonstrating their expertise by producing outstanding returns, a number of which rank in the top quartile and top decile of all funds globally. The combining of sovereign wealth funds, large institutional investors and U.S.’s best emerging managers should make for a high impact conference.
“We are proud to have NAIC as a title sponsor for this groundbreaking institutional investor forum in Miami. In a low-yield environment, institutional investors such as sovereign wealth funds, pensions and life insurance companies, are demanding access to high-quality emerging private equity and alternative managers,” commented Michael Maduell, President of the SWFI.
