“There are many industry events that feature alternative investments, but none are dedicated to meeting the unique needs of Registered Investment Advisors and Independent Broker Dealers,” said Matt Brown, Founder and CEO of CAIS. “With the increasing demand and rising allocations to alternative investments, CAIS continues to invest in the technology that enables financial advisors and asset managers to engage and transact seamlessly,” Brown continued.

The launch of the CAIS Alternative Investment Summit follows the company securing over $325 million in growth capital from Apollo, Motive Partners, Franklin Templeton, and Reverence Capital Partners which values the Company at more than $1.1 billion.

The 3-day, invitation-only CAIS Summit, will feature senior leadership from the alternative investment community and focus on private equity and credit, venture capital, hedge fund strategies, real estate, structured solutions and digital assets. Additionally, the Summit will explore the advancements in technology and regulation that are paving the way for alternative investment transformation and platformization.
