The Managed Funds Association has formed an alliance with the Texas Hedge Fund Association, an education and advocacy organisation that represents the hedge fund and managed futures industry in Texas and the surrounding states.

The affiliation gives THFA members a direct line into MFA communications, advocacy, education, and networking programmes, including three yearly MFA conferences and many issues-based seminars.

MFA will use the alliance to further unify the industry voice among a broad community consisting of managers, commodity trading advisers, investors, and service providers.

“MFA is continuing to forge links with regional, grassroots industry organisations and is pleased to welcome the Texas Hedge Fund Association as an affiliate,” says Richard H. Baker (pictured), MFA president and chief executive. “Strong, active groups like THFA will play an important role in our increasingly unified efforts to educate policy makers, regulators, and pension recipients about the value of our industry.”

“By affiliating with MFA we are able to provide our members with opportunities for dialogue, education, and networking at a national and international level,” says Christopher A. Zook, THFA chairman of the board. “THFA is dedicated to fostering industry growth while maintaining the highest standards, and we believe MFA is perfectly positioned to help us achieve those objectives.”

MFA formed an alliance with New York Hedge Fund Roundtable in February, the Connecticut Hedge Fund Association in January, and the Mid Atlantic Hedge Fund Association in October 2009. Other affiliations with regional hedge fund associations are expected to be announced in the coming months.
