UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School


Alternative Investments Conference set for Feb. 14


Due to inclement weather the conference has been rescheduled for April 4, 2014.

The seventh annual Alternative Investments Conference (AIC) will be hosted by the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School on Feb. 14.

The conference is a forum for private equity, hedge fund, venture capital and limited partner professionals to network, share ideas and stay abreast of industry trends.

“Seeking Sustainable Yield” is the theme of the student-led event organized by the UNC Kenan-Flagler Private Equity Club, an MBA career organization.

Keynote speakers will be:

  • Terry S. Brown, chairman and chief executive officer, EDENS
  • William C. Montgomery, managing director, Quantum Energy Partners
  • Mounir Guen, chief executive officer, MVision

Over 25 speakers will participate in panel discussions on private equity, real estate, energy and infrastructure, distressed and special situations, hedge funds and emerging markets.

Proceeds from the conference fund the Alternative Investment Fellowship, which assists selected UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA students gain summer internships with leading alternative investment firms.

The robust focus on private equity at UNC Kenan-Flagler extends from educational and career preparation for students – including the only student-run private equity fund at a top-tier business school – to the faculty’s research.

The AIC will be held at the Carolina Club on the UNC campus. For more information and registration, go to www.uncaic.com.
