Opal Group’s Alternative Investing Summit 2018

Sherri Haskell, Canna Angels, CEO will be speaking to contribute insights into the expanding domestic and global cannabis investment opportunities.


The Alternative Investing Summit will bring together trustees and representatives of institutions as well as money managers and consultants to explore the roles of alternative opportunities and strategies. As a strategy, alternatives offer investors a method to obtain the returns they require and break the paradigm of the 60/40 rule, however not all alternatives are the same nor do they come without certain risks. Participants and delegates of this alternative investment conference will investigate a range of critical investment issues, including discussion of the risks and benefits of various asset classes and investment vehicles such as hedge funds and private equity, examining means of cutting costs associated with implementation of absolute returns strategies, reviewing the future of commodities and surveying the landscape of emerging international markets.

The rising stars of marijuana’s investment scene that everyone from Wall Street to Silicon Valley should know

Business Insider, Jeremy Berke and Melia Robinson
March 17, 2018 –
 Excerpt (Full article here)

As the legal-cannabis industry continues to grow at a breakneck pace, investors from Wall Street to Silicon Valley are seeing green.

Venture-capital investors from around the world spent $355 million on 100 marijuana-industry deals in 2017, and 2018 is on pace to break last year’s record. By the end of February, there were 19 venture-backed deals in the industry worth $176 million alone, and that doesn’t factor in the money investors have poured into hedge funds set up to take advantage of the budding industry.

For Business Insider’s first-ever list of rising stars in the marijuana-investment space, we asked readers to submit nominations and surveyed our past coverage of the industry. The list celebrates top investors from Wall Street to Silicon Valley and a number of places in between.

Federal prohibition has prevented most American institutional investors and top venture-capital firms from investing in the space. The situation has given rise to a number of marijuana-specific venture firms in the US — funded by high-net-worth individuals and family offices — and provided an opening for Canadian firms. Both these groups are well represented on our list.

We considered any active investors who have made investments in the marijuana industry, whether their contributions come from angel investing, venture capital, or hedge funds.

These are the rising stars of the marijuana-investment scene.
