Background

The Greater China Alternative Managers Association (“GC-AMA”) was established in 2012 as a non-profit organization by five founding members working in the alternative investment industry. With China being the world’s second largest economy, we believe the country’s growth opportunities will continue to charm large investment capital globally to flow into the different domestic sectors and industries. China has demonstrated an over 9% GDP growth each year in the past decade and we anticipate this trend to continue albeit at a slower pace. With the China Central Government supporting the domestic Investment and Financial Services sector as one of its key economic development policies, we expect the roadmap ahead will be very favorable for both traditional, as well as alternative investments.

GC-AMA is all about creating opportunities for traditional portfolio managers, alternative investment managers, proprietary traders, and private equity general partners to congregate, connect and interact with like-minded risk tolerating professionals. The Executive Committee at GC-AMA strives to support and provide a relaxing networking platform for its members so as to cultivate a conducive environment for the cross-fertilization of ideas, or to freely discuss thematic issues, or to simply just meet new friends.
