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 four private investor summits annually

Connect with senior asset owners at four regional summits: UK & Ireland Summit in February; Swiss, German & Austrian Summit in June; Pan-European & Benelux Summit in October and Nordic Summit in November.  

Structured networking time during the Summits

At each summit you will participate in table workshops and break-out group discussions. These 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 and marketing initiatives, as well as hearing proprietary research results on asset owner activity and institutional capital flows.

Surveys into investor behaviour, trends and thinking

During the year, each institutional investor market set is surveyed at the summits regarding their risk strategy, asset allocation strategy and other areas of interest. You will receive the aggregated results as well as benchmarking against previous years.
