Over 400 alternative investment specialists attended Hedgeopolis in New York, the inaugural Hedge Fund Insights Conference presented by the Hedge Fund Association and Agecroft Partners.
Attendees gained relevant insights from decision makers from many of the most prominent institutional investors who shared their views on what hedge fund strategies offer the greatest potential to generate strong returns going forward given current valuations levels and economic forecasts, as well as the evolving regulatory environment and new hedge fund marketing opportunities resulting from the JOBS Act.
“The HFA’s members were very impressed by the quality of thought leadership at the inaugural Hedgeopolis conference,” says Mitch Ackles, president of the Hedge Fund Association. “We look forward to the 2014 gathering where we will have more clarity on the impact of these important topics on our industry.”
Don Steinbrugge (pictured), chairman of the inaugural Hedgeopolis conference and founder of Agecroft Partners, says: “Hedgeopolis New York achieved all of our expectations. In addition to selling the conference out at over 400 registrations in our first year, we had one of the highest attendance percentages of institutional investors of any conference in the industry, which included a large number of CIOs and heads of research of many of the largest hedge fund allocators.”
