Agecroft Partners has pledged to donate USD1 million from its Hedge Fund Leadership Summits to non-profit organisations that benefit children.
Since 2013 Agecroft Partners has committed to improving the lives of children through donating 100 per cent of their profits from conferences.
This includes Hedgeopolis (with which they are no longer involved) and their event Gaining the Edge – Hedge Fund Investor Leadership Summits. Through the end of 2017 Agecroft Partners expects to have given away over USD500,000 from these conferences.
For the second year in a row, Agecroft has chosen Help for Children/Hedge Funds Care as the primary beneficiary for Gaining the Edge – 2017 Hedge Fund Investor Leadership Summit taking place in New York City on November 2-3, 2017. 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.
In addition to supporting Hedge Funds Care, Agecroft has donated conference profits to over a dozen other organisations focused on 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 – 2017 Hedge Fund Investor Leadership Summit will be comprised of panel discussions between some of the world’s most influential hedge fund investors where 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. Speakers will include decision makers at pensions, endowments, foundations, institutional consultants, and funds of funds.
Unlike most hedge fund conferences that feature hedge fund managers who are heavily biased toward their own strategy, the conference will showcase only leading hedge fund investors as panellists who will provide their independent view on which hedge fund strategies look the most attractive given current capital market valuations and economic forecasts. Panel discussions will also focus on key issues in performing industry leading, best practice hedge fund due diligence.
