The DACH Alternatives & Real Assets Summit is going virtual! Please click here to learn more about the DACH Alternatives & Real Assets Digital Summit.

Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our event programme, we have decided to postpone the upcoming DACH Alternatives & Real Assets Summit, which was to be held on the 4th of November 2020, to next year. 

The health and success of our clients, partners and Institutional Investor colleagues are our top priority. We are exploring opportunities to organise digital meetings in order to stay abreast of the important themes taking place within our industry.

If you have any questions or would like to participate in our digital alternatives, please do not hesitate to contact us.


This Summit brings together Heads of Alternatives, Heads of Real Estate, Heads of Hedge Funds, as well as interested Chief Investment Officers to discuss investing in real assets and alternatives. The setting is private and confidential, with all discussions being held under the Chatham House Rule.

Language: German and English

The Summit will be held in both German and English with simultaneous translation available in the main meeting room. The programme is available in both languages.


The agenda is curated by an expert advisory board and includes relevant topics of common interest in the DACH investment community. Last year, topics included:

  • The Drive for Efficient Execution in Alternatives in the Face of Limited Resources
  • What Does Private Markets Data Tell Us about the Health of the European Economy
  • Dealing with Yield Compression in Infrastructure
  • ILS in Review: Weathering the Storm
  • What to do with Farmland and Forestry
  • Integrating ESG into a Portfolio of Alternatives - Risk Management or Thematic Opportunity
