ABOUT THE SUMMIT

That alternative assets are no longer ‘alternative’ is something of an industry cliché, but it is also undoubtedly the case today. The Indian alternative assets industry is set to expand across all asset classes over the next five years

Now in its ninth year, Indian Alternative Investments Summit 2022 (IAIS22) brings together leading thinkers and decision makers from different segments of the alternatives industry. The Summit has quickly grown to become one of the most influential discussion forums within the alternative investment space.
