Congratulations on a masterfully orchestrated conference. The speakers were engaging, the program was enjoyable, and (most importantly) everything ran on schedule. This was truly one of the highlight events of Toronto's investment community, and should be on every alternative investor's calendar for 2014..........Mo Lidsky, Principal, Prime Quadrant
Thank you for having me as your keynote speaker at your 3rd Canadian
Alternative Investment Forum. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The moderators
and panels were superb! Participants were extremely knowledgeable and willing
to freely share their intellectual property. I have found over my 38-year
career that many conference panel members are guarded in both manner and
information, possibly to hedge their perceived competitive edge. Combine
that with political correctness and one walks away with milquetoast opinions
and a sense of wasted time. However, you selected your speakers carefully;
information flowed and opinions were strongly championed. Your forum was
an informative and uplifting experience; I would highly recommend your next
conference to all professionals and investors in the space!..........Frank
Casey, Member FoxHounds Whistle Blowing Team to SEC on Madoff
Thank you for putting on a fantastic conference. The material was informative and the networking exceptional. I am looking forward to next year!..........Arthur C. Salzer, CEO and CIO, Northland Wealth Managment
On behalf of Robin Korthals, Brian Durno and myself, please accept my thanks for, and congratulations on, your really worthwhile 3rd Canadian Alternative Investment Forum. Your speakers were enlightening and fun and the participants were impressive and attentive. People really had a good time and shared a lot of information during the breaks and over lunch. It was great to see old friends. Frank Casey's keynote speech was dynamite. All in all, a banner day..........John Budden, Senior Advisor and Fund Representative, The Investment Partners Fund
Thank you for your invitation to join your Canadian Alternative Investment
Forum last week. It was a most professional and informative day. I was particularly
impressed by the quality of your moderators and panelists - impressive wisdom,
insight and experience on stage! Congratulations on a most successful day.

"Thanks so much for inviting me to Introcap's 2nd Canadian Alternative Investment Forum. We said we wanted hard-hitting discussions and you delivered. There's nothing like getting a manager away from their typical presentation and having to confront the tough issues they currently face."
Panels were entertaining, thought-provoking and packed with actionable information. You had a great mix of high-caliber attendees and the keynote on China by Carl Weinberg addressed a topic that had to be on everyone's mind.
"As always, you were a gracious host and the venue was excellent. We all appreciate your efforts on behalf of the Canadian alternative investment industry; you may need a larger room next year!" .... Brian Casselman, Casselman & Company Inc.
