RICHMOND, Va., April 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Active Investment Company Alliance (AICA) is pleased to announce a two-day virtual conference for Financial Advisors and Institutional Investors featuring Interval Fund managers and executives. The "2022 Interval Fund Spring Manager Spotlight" will take place on the afternoons of April 26th and 27th, from 1:00 ET to 4:00 pm ET each day.
"Investors have always sought better portfolio and income diversification. Alternative assets have been offering that diversification but traditionally have not been accessible to retail investors. Interval Funds are making alternative assets accessible. Most now have 3-5 year performance track records, have proven themselves in the market, and as a group they’re offering a wide spectrum of choices for investors. This event will enable investors and their advisors to better understand the structure and how some of the top funds are using it to deliver solid results for investors."
– John Cole Scott, chief investment officer at Closed-End Fund Advisors and executive chairman at AICA
Interval Funds, a non-listed type of closed-end fund, have experienced tremendous growth in recent years. There are now 75 Interval funds managing about $60 billion, up from 27 such funds less than 5 years ago.
