Hedge Connection selects five charities to benefit from asset allocation competition

Related Topics

Hedge Connection, the alternative investment platform connecting investment managers with asset allocators, has selected five charities to benefit from The Pitch, a “Shark Tank” style asset allocation competition.  

Each competing investment manager will donate to one of the five pre-selected charities: Family Centre, PRIDE Bermuda, Women’s Resource Centre, Bermuda National Gallery (four Bermuda-based charitable organisations) or Technoserve in Washington, DC.  Hedge Connection will further support these five charities through its May 15 to  June 21, 2015 stock picking contest  “GFF Bermuda Challenge” organised by Portfolios with Purpose.
“We are very excited to integrate this charitable component within the asset allocation framework of our event, especially our decision to channel much of the philanthropic benefits to Bermuda-based organisations,” says Hedge Connection CEO Lisa Vioni. “It was important for us to select and support charities that serve specific causes I had identified including poverty prevention, women’s empowerment, children affected by substance abuse and arts education.  In addition to the donations by participating investment managers, Hedge Connection will donate directly to each of these charities.”
