Semi-Annual Forum

January 27 - 29, 2020

Los Angeles, CA

The XALT RIA Semi-Annual Forum is our signature event that provides Registered Investment Advisers with practical education, peer collaboration, and access to best-in-class alternative investment managers.

XALT RIA Forums combine immersive compliance and practice management workshops with short-duration one-on-one meetings with “RIA friendly” alternative investment managers. RIAs that attend will:

  • Learn from subject matter experts RIA-specific regulatory requirements related to on-boarding alternative investments, including investor suitability, transactional, and billing best practices.

  • Network and idea share with like-minded RIAs on the "real world" challenges and opportunities that come with incorporating a meaningful allocation to alternative investments.

  • Meet alternative investment managers that have been pre-qualified on their ability to serve RIA’s interests.


Space is limited to just 20 RIAs and 15 alternative investment managers. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to transform your practice. Register today!
