Delegates joined us in London for AIMA's annual Next Generation Manager Forum, which took place on Thursday 23 May, 2024.

The half day Forum provided a platform for the exchange of ideas and the development of peer networking for senior individuals at alternative asset management businesses managing up to $500m in hedge and private credit assets. These firms are an integral part of the alternative investment management community and are important and substantial contributors to AIMA’s work.
