SALT 2016: Get Ready For Another Market-Moving Conference
It’s back! This week is the 2016 Skybridge Alternatives Investment Conference, better known to many as SALT. It’s an event unlike any other where the brightest and most influential minds in finance, business and politics come to one place to talk about the future.
Other conferences talk about the past: things accomplished, papers written and current exploits. SALT promises something different, a conversation about what’s coming. Where's the hedge fund industry going? What does the world look like after the 2016 presidential election?
This year's lineup consists of heavyweights like Michael Bloomberg, John Boehner, Mark Cuban, Michael Lewis and Will Smith. On Friday, Skybridge founder Anthony Scaramucci will be sitting down for a one-on-one with Caitlyn Jenner.
Some of the conversations will revolve around this year’s coming investment themes, top investment picks from top managers like John Burbank and James Chanos. T. Boone Pickens will be in attendance, and it will be shocking if he talks about anything other than oil.
The event kicks off Wednesday morning for 2 1/2 days of learning about the year to come. Regardless of who speaks, this will be a hot event that could move markets.
