Beyond the stock market

June 27, 2016 10:39 AM

Where do you find a decent investment return these days? While stocks are back near all-time highs, they are up just 1% during the last 12 months, while the average corporate bond yields about 1.75% a year. Are the days of double digit returns gone forever?

We’ve got 5 Alternative Investment professionals who argue there can be plenty of return out there, if you know where to look. We all know real estate – but what about buying up distressed mortgages or lending money via a peer to peer platform to increase yields?

We know stocks may be mostly stagnant – but what about investing in corporate profits before the companies are publically traded via Venture Capital and Angel investing?

And we may see news about this or that hedge fund celebrity – but what about truly understanding how commodities based global macro and managed futures hedge funds derive performance from return drivers independent of stocks and bonds?

Sound like questions you’d like to get into? Join us Tuesday, June 28 to hear from the founding partners of 5 different "beyond the stock market" investment firms, including: peer to peer real estate lending, investing in distressed mortgage debt, technology focused venture capital, Chicago-backed Angel Investing and commodities based global macro and managed futures hedge funds.  

The event will be moderated by Modern Trader's own features editor, Garrett Baldwin, and takes place in Chicago's Merchandise Mart.
