Regular readers of this blog will know that I frequently write about alternative sources of income, mostly but not exclusively investment trusts. One issue many ordinary investors have with this specialist space is getting as many managers in one room as possible and then asking them all the tricky questions. In early June my colleagues at AltFi will be running an alternative Income event very much focused on trusts. Details for the event – tickets are free – are HERE.

The event is being run jointly with brokers Cantor Fitzgerald as well as fund managers Henderson and RM.

Here’s some more information on the event….

Income investors are increasingly looking for yield from alternative assets with this nowhere more evident than the investment trust world, demonstrated by a flurry of launches and cash-raises in recent years. Join top fund managers and investors at AltFi’s 2nd Alternative Income Forum on 5th June for a no-holds-barred exploration of the booming market for investment trusts and funds offering exposure to alternative income. In addition we’ll be looking at the growing popularity of the asset class among fund of funds and multi-asset investor as well as cover the expanding universe of niches within the alternative income bracket including:

  • Direct and online lending 
  • Private credit
  • Infrastructure debt
  • Asset backed loans
  • Real Estate debt”
