100 Women in Hedge Funds, a non-profit organisation for professionals in the alternatives industry, has raised nearly GBP500,000 at its London Gala event which took place last night at the historic Middle Temple Hall. 

The event was attended by over 200 leaders from across the hedge fund industry.

The net proceeds will go to support Centrepoint, a national charity that works to improve the lives of young homeless people. 

The organisation also presented Geraldine Sundstrom of Brevan Howard Asset Management with its 2010 European Industry Leadership Award.
HRH Prince William of Wales attended the gala. Prince William became a Patron of 100 Women in Hedge Fund’s philanthropic initiatives in January 2010 and, over the next three years, this partnership will focus on three of Prince William’s patronages: Centrepoint in 2010, the Child Bereavement Charity in 2011, and Skill Force in 2012.
Seyi Obakin (pictured), the chief executive of Centrepoint, says: “We are delighted to have been chosen as the beneficiary of this year’s 100 Women in Hedge Funds Gala and are grateful to Prince William and the generosity of all who attended the event. This contribution will be a huge benefit to the work Centrepoint is doing in helping to tackle homelessness, as well as help to support our efforts to improve the lives of young people across the country.”
