CAASA Annual Conference 2021

High Touch & 100% Virtual

We believe that people attend conferences for many reasons: great panels, lively discussions, meet new & old friends, and in many cases some super food and after-hours bonding. Sadly, only the first reason is delivered by many online conferences and the last two are just not feasible in COVID-land. We designed this and many other large-scale conferences in 2020 and beyond to harness technology to serve our delegates’ needs. With no minimum number of webinars, small group discussions, or 1:1 meetings, all delegates can get what they want without travel or possible harm to their health. We encourage you to take a tour of our platform, which we have used for 5 years – now with video, and get to know this new normal to maximize your conference experience same as you might in real life!

Who Attends?

The CAASA Annual Conference brings together speakers and participants from private and public pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, single and multi-family offices, consulting firms, investment dealers, Canadian and global investment management houses, and affiliated service providers. Panels and break-out sessions will focus on key issues facing investors and managers in Canada and elsewhere including structuring, legal & tax issues, IT and operational areas, and investments – including: hedge funds, CTAs, private equity, private lending, real estate, infrastructure, and crypto-assets/blockchain-related investments.

All content is subject to Chatham House Rule.

Our 2020 conference delegation included 55% investors, 35% managers and 10% service providers and other industry players. We expect 150 investors, 120 managers, and 30 service providers to attend this edition.
