Saving Alpha: Tax and Estate Planning Considerations for Alternative Investments

Brad Dillon

Presented by
Brad Dillon

Partner, Tax & Estate Strategy, Andreessen Horowitz

November 29, 2023
10:20 - 11:10 a.m.     

This session is designed to equip advisors with key insights into the taxation of various alternative investment strategies, with a special focus on minimizing both income and transfer taxes (e.g., gift, estate and generation-skipping transfer taxes). While the tax rules in this domain are notoriously complex, our discussion will steer away from the technical rules and instead concentrate on the broader considerations that advisors need to be aware of— which taxes are applicable, when they apply and the potential strategies that can be employed. The discussion will encompass private equity, hedge funds, real estate and venture capital, as well as solutions for managing concentrated positions, such as charitable trusts and exchange funds.

Learning Objectives:
  • Speak to the basic tax consequences of various alternative investment strategies
  • Understand and communicate the importance of estate and tax planning with alternative investments
  • Know when to engage with outside tax professionals and how to engage with them cost effectively
