The European Alternative Investments Institute (EAII) is a private membership organisation for heads of sales, marketing and distribution. The main purpose of the Institute is to build relationships and promote educational dialogue between leading asset managers and senior investment officials from European pension funds, insurers and foundations. The Institute holds four regional investor meetings per year covering the key distribution markets in Europe. The fifth meeting of the year is the Senior Delegates’ Research Summit, attended by members only, which focuses on the operational issues and market challenges faced by members.
Access to Annual, Private, Regional Investor Summits
Connect with senior asset owners at 4 or 5 regional Summits: Nordics; UK & Ireland; DACH, Benelux and Italy & Southern Europe.
Structured Networking Time During the Summits
At each summit you will participate in table discussions and break-out group discussions. Such discussions mix managers and investors together making connections easier. In addition, evening activities are structured to facilitate casual introductions and relationship building.
Access to the Senior Delegate Only Summit
This exclusive event brings together Heads of Sales/Marketing/Distribution for a candid peer-to-peer exchange on institutional sales efforts in Europe. We conduct benchmarking studies, hear case studies and discuss sales efforts as well as hear proprietary research results on asset owner activity and institutional capital flows.
The Compensation Survey of Sales and Marketing Professionals
Drawing on data from EIII members, the survey benchmarks sales compensation for budget planning, current and future plans for base salary, cash bonuses and non-monetary compensation incentives. The research is conducted for confidential purposes by an outside executive search firm.
Surveys Into Investor Behaviour, Trends and Thinking
During the year, each institutional investor market set is surveyed regarding their risk strategy, asset allocation strategy and other areas of interest. You will receive the aggregated results through 4 or 5 insight calls conducted annually as well as benchmarking against previous years.
