Larry Antonatos, a Portfolio Manager on the Real Assets Solutions team for Brookfield’s Public Securities Group, explores how investors can reap the rewards of both public and private real assets by combining them within a single hybrid portfolio. By diversifying the drivers of risk and return, the potential investment benefits of this hybrid approach are:
- Enhanced risk-adjusted returns
- Dynamic asset allocation of public securities
- Strategic diversification of private funds
Please join us for a discussion on the underlying characteristics and risk/return profile of a public/private real assets portfolio along with an analysis of the “illiquidity premium” attributed to private funds.

Moving the crown jewels to the cloud requires a trusted cloud provider. This is why almost 40% of enterprises choose to run internal applications on Azure, which was designed to deliver more choice, scalability, and speed. However, this also extends the security perimeter to the Internet - rendering network-centric security methods obsolete.
Many companies still try to rely on the network-centric methods of the old world (i.e remote access VPN), when apps ran only in the datacenter, to provide user-to-app connectivity. They're now recognizing that the complexity of appliances and the need to manage ACLs and FW policies will actually slow the move to Azure dramatically. It's time for a new approach. One built for the new world.
Join Sean Dastouri, Senior Cloud Architect at Microsoft Azure and Lisa Lorenzin, Director of Emerging Technology Solutions at Zscaler as they discuss migrating applications to Azure and delivering faster secure application access for remote users with ZPA.
- Why enterprises are moving applications to Microsoft Azure
- How the internet has become the new network
- Reasons why network-centric security services are becoming obsolete
- The Zscaler solution delivering secure access to private applications on Azure

The US private debt market is a large, mature market with the opportunity for investment grade quality debt. Ease of issuance and availability has attracted issuers globally, which can add significant geographic diversification to a portfolio. Name, sector, and structural diversification also can help make US private debt an important diversifier in an otherwise all-public bond portfolio. In addition to diversification benefits, the US private placement market offers a complement of structural protections along with several sources of yield enhancements.
The private placement market in the United States is dominated by life insurance companies, resulting in an investor base with similar investment needs and risk tolerance levels. In Europe, investors tend to be less homogenous and can include banks, asset managers, and insurers, among others. The diverse investor base tends to result in a market replete with deals lacking many of the characteristics sought by insurers.
In this webcast, Alexander Alston will discuss why US private placements can be appealing to European insurers, despite the increased prevalence of European markets. Also, David Ramroop, Head of Investments at Just Group, will discuss their approach to investing in private placements.

In this webinar, speakers will discuss:
•The global private placement market and recent trends;
•Documentation requirements for traditional and structured transactions;
•Financial covenants, MFLs and model form provisions;
•New issuers using the market (social housing trusts, universities, investment trusts, etc);
•Marketing process with Agented and direct Private Placements; and
•Ratings and the NAIC.
Private clouds are supposed to offer the flexibility and agility of a public cloud, but with more control of data and costs. Building the infrastructure and systems to deliver it often turns out to be a complex and difficult job. In this session, you’ll learn how F5 simplifies application and security in private clouds through a series of integrated solution offerings.
This presentation was originally delivered at the F5 Agility conference August, 2017.
The cloud promises to enable organisations to be more flexible, agile and responsive to the needs of their business and the demands of customer and partners. As physical infrastructure has become invisible to end-users, the role of service providers and channel partners has changed. Faced with public and private options, many firms are taking a XaaS approach, embracing the best of both private and public worlds - implementing hybrid architectures to deliver on-demand access to compute resources, capacity, and services, while also providing greater levels of control, security, and visibility of data and applications. In this webinar, Rory Duncan, Research Director with 451 Research will outline the opportunities for Service Providers and channel partners delivering cloud services, examining topics such as support, managed services, data protection and data sovereignty for facilitating cloud consumption.Read more >

As investors continue to migrate toward private assets in search of potential benefits like low volatility, differentiated sources of income and uncorrelated returns, they are faced with an increasingly broad universe from which to choose.
As they wade through a sea of private equity and debt options, it is becoming apparent to many investors that all private assets are not created equal.
Increasingly, origination – an investment manager’s ability to source a large quantity of high-quality investment opportunities – is becoming the difference between underperformance and outperformance.
In this webinar, we will discuss the important role that origination plays when it comes to achieving attractive long-term, risk-adjusted returns and income streams in:
- Private Credit
- Private Equity
- Infrastructure Debt
- Private Real Estate Investments

Private LTE networks are becoming the critical infrastructure for a variety of vertical markets. This webinar will explore the requirements of these markets and the unique capabilities of the NetNumber TITAN centralized signaling and routing control platform to deliver the core signaling and database applications on a single virtual machine that can scale down to run on the often-limited resources available in a Private LTE network instance.
NetNumber supports a wide range of deployment environments including COTS hardware running on Intel architecture. NetNumber also provides the capability to centrally provision the distributed LTE core instances without the need for any additional management applications, which would otherwise take up additional compute resources.
Private cloud doesn't have to be complex. In fact, it shouldn't be complex, because your customers just want it to work. While there are countless different ways to build on-premise clouds, there's a secret most vendors have missed: private cloud should be easy. Easy to buy, easy to deploy, easy to manage and easy to use.
This session will cover the real USPs of private cloud for SMB and enterprise customers, and introduce a new turnkey, white label 'private cloud in a box' solution that combines the OnApp cloud management platform with Intel server, storage and networking products.

- removing complexity and adding value
