Agecroft Partners names four non-profit beneficiaries of Gaining the Edge – 2018 Hedge Fund Leadership Conference

Agecroft Partners has chosen four non-profit organisations to be the primary beneficiaries of the Gaining the Edge - 2018 Hedge Fund Investor Leadership Conference, which will take place in New York City on 5-6 November 2018.

The four primary beneficiaries are Help For Children/Hedge Funds Care, The Peter Paul Development Center, Elk Hill, and the Virginia Home for Boys and Girls.
Since 2013 Agecroft Partners has committed to improving the lives of children through donating 100 per cent of the profits from its conferences. Through the end of 2018 Agecroft Partners expects to have contributed over USD700,000 to non-profits that benefit children, moving closer to its USD1 million goal.
Help for Children is a global foundation that provides grants to the most effective and efficient child abuse prevention and treatment interventions in six countries, making the world a safer place for children. The Peter Paul Development Center is an outreach and community centre that gives children a safe, consistent, structured and loving environment in which to thrive. Elk Hill is an outreach program and school which serves at risk children through intervention, hands on support, and schooling to develop sustainable long term life skills. The Virginia Home for Boys and Boys and Girls helps children with emotional and behaviour health concerns by providing a nurturing environment and family teaching approach to facilitate a healing process.
In addition to supporting these four nonprofit organisations, Agecroft has donated conference profits to over a dozen other organisations focused on supporting troubled youth, children’s health, and children’s education. Agecroft Partners has provided not only financial support, but has also contributed their time, serving on the boards of more than half of these organisations.
Gaining the Edge is one of the largest hedge fund conferences in the world, selling out in each of the last three years. The event has recently posted the 2018 agenda and 50 confirmed speakers on its website. The event’s speakers are among the world’s most influential investors in hedge funds, and include decision makers at pensions, endowments, foundations, institutional consultants, large family offices and funds of funds. The objective is to have candid, robust conversations and debates about various ways to enhance the risk adjusted returns of a diversified hedge fund portfolio.
