Agecroft expands Gaining the Edge Nov 2-3 NYC

Commentary, News
November 2-3  |  New York City  |
After two sold out events, Agecroft Partners has decided that Gaining the Edge – 2017 Hedge Fund Investor Leadership Summit will be expanded to include a second day, taking place on November 2-3 in New York City. The event is expected to sellout at 600 registrations, including over 300 institutional hedge fund allocators. 100% of the profits will be donated to non-profit organizations that benefit children.
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. Hedge funds are not an asset class, but a fund structure that includes numerous strategies. Although both are important, choosing the right strategies in which to invest is more important than selecting the best managers for a diversified portfolio. Unlike most hedge fund conferences that feature hedge fund managers who are heavily biased toward their own strategy, this conference will showcase only leading hedge fund investors as panelists 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.
