Agecroft – New York- Agecroft Partners announced that all profits from its new conference, Gaining the Edge – 2016 Hedge Fund Investor Leadership Summit, taking place on December 7th in New York City, will be donated to support children in need. This reflects an ongoing commitment by Agecroft Partners to help non-profit organizations that benefit children The partners of Agecroft have donated over $350,000 during the past 3 years, including 100% of their profits from conferences they have hosted. Agecroft will announce which nonprofits will be the event’s main beneficiaries closer to the conference date.
Gaining the Edge – 2016 Hedge Fund Investor Leadership Summit will be comprised of panel discussions among 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-edge/best practices hedge fund due diligence.
Agecroft expects this conference to sell out with 600 registrations, similar to what the firm achieved at their Gaining the Edge – Hedge Fund Marketing Leadership Summit in April. For more information or to register please visit www.apgainingtheedge.com.
