The Hedge Fund Association and Agecroft Partners are teaming up to create a new hedge fund conference, Hedgeopolis New York, which will be held in New York City at The Metropolitan Club on 4 November 2013.
Conference speakers include leaders at pension funds, endowments, foundations, and funds of hedge funds.
With interest rates near historic lows and significant political and economic risk around the world, investors are focused on enhancing returns in their portfolios while reducing downside volatility. Hedgeopolis is focused on unbiased opinions from many of the world’s most prominent institutional investors on what hedge fund strategies look the most attractive given today’s market dynamics, what strategies will help diversify away downside risk, and how to enhance the due diligence process when selecting hedge fund managers.
“Over 100 institutional and private investors, decision-makers that actively allocate to hedge funds, are expected to attend Hedgeopolis,” says Don Steinbrugge (pictured), managing partner of Agecroft Partners. “Hedge fund managers will hear what strategies investors are focused on, what key issues are on their minds, and what factors they are using to select new hedge fund managers.”
“Today, the Hedge Fund Association has more chapters in more cities than any other non-profit hedge fund focused trade organisation in the world,” says Mitch Ackles, president of the Hedge Fund Association. “Hedgeopolis New York continues that momentum by delivering a full day conference where hedge fund managers can learn from and gain direct access to dozens of institutional and private investors.”
Discounted early-bird registration is now open at Hedgeopolis.com. Registration includes five hours of networking time with investors, including breakfast, lunch, extended breaks and a two-hour cocktail reception. Non-member registration also includes one full year of Hedge Fund Association membership.
