Conducted by : Advent Software and Amber Partners
Contact : Advent Software - Events

Hedge funds have faced severe challenges over the last couple of years and investors and regulators alike are making increasing demands for greater operational efficiency, transparency and governance.

The topics discussed include: 
•             Valuation: is it transparent, consistent and independent? 
•             The Manager: structure and ownership of the firm, assets and products managed, staffing, infrastructure, business continuity and disaster recovery plans
•             Trading, operations and accounting: are sufficient processes and procedures in place to ensure the timely capture and accurate recording of trades?
