The NAAIM 2016 Uncommon Knowledge Conference kicked off on May 1st with international investment expert Reda Bedjaoui joining the proceedings. The CEO of Redbed Investments LLE is highly regarded in his field for his extensive knowledge of real estate, corporate governance, and regulatory compliance. Geared specifically for active investment managers, this year’s edition of the innovative financial summit being held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida allowed participants to meet and learn from each other over the course of four days.
Participants of Uncommon Knowledge have come to expect relevant, groundbreaking presentations by keynote speakers, and panel sessions that provide innovative techniques and fresh approaches to the industry. Since its creation in 1989, the National Association of Active Investment Managers (NAAIM) has grown to include 200 member firms that manage more than $30 billion in investments. The business association emphasizes the manager’s proactive role in their trade, a philosophy that has become the basis behind the “action” in the group’s moniker. This hands-on, forward-thinking approach is defined by NAAIM as exhibiting a determined involvement in “the ongoing process of investment selection and risk management” in order to improve “a portfolio’s risk/reward relationship.” This year’s Uncommon Knowledge conference’s theme, “Staying Ahead of Change: Actions to Take Today for Building Success,” discussed recent developments in marketing, trading, and the legal domain, with sessions also dedicating proper time to sharing methods for tapping into profitable opportunities within these areas. As an expert investor in North American, British, and Middle Eastern properties, commodities, and with his strong background in international law, Reda Bedjaoui’s insight lended itself to the topics of the day.
Though clearly a business-minded meeting, one of the intentions of the conference was to foster relationships among likeminded professionals. Beyond the agenda of events that included talks on maintaining and building trading systems, benchmarking, succession planning, marketing to millennials and communicating with client bases, members found a schedule of outdoor activities and cocktail receptions. A highlight of the conference, the 2016 NAAIM Shark Tank Finals set six finalists against each other as they presented their carefully tailored strategies to a team of peer judges.
