Preparing for the Next Black Swans

The year 2011 will most certainly be remembered for its Black Swan events, including the spreading unrest in the Middle East and the earthquake in Japan. Money managers need to be prepared for unexpected events as they position their investments across asset classes.

The Bloomberg Money Managers Conference will bring together mutual fund, hedge fund and private equity investors to consider events that could rock the markets, portfolio strategies for managing the unforeseen and the future of actively-managed investing.
