Agecroft – New York – agecroft Partners announced that Help for Children will be the primary beneficiary of Gaining the Edge – 2016 Hedge Fund Investor Leadership Summit, taking place on December 7th in New York City. 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 foundation is supported by the generosity of Hedge Funds Care and the broader alternative investment community. Help For Children has a two-fold approach: The foundation supports proven methods that are effective in preventing and treating child abuse while also acting as venture philanthropists by supporting promising practices that have shown a strong track record and providing seed money to launch larger public investments.
This announcement reflects an ongoing commitment by Agecroft Partners to help non-profit organizations that benefit children. The partners of Agecroft have donated over $350,000 to non-profit organizations that support children in need, including 100% of their profits from conferences they have hosted.
Gaining the Edge – 2016 Hedge Fund Investor Leadership Summit will gather 600 hedge fund investment professionals, including over 250 of the world’s most influential investors in hedge funds, to hear candid, robust comments and debates about various ways to enhance the risk adjusted returns of a diversified hedge fund portfolio. Unlike most hedge fund conferences featuring hedge fund managers who are heavily biased relative to their strategy, this conference will only feature leading hedge fund investors as panelists who will provide insights about what hedge fund strategies look the most attractive given current capital market valuations and economic forecasts. Speakers will include decision makers at pensions, endowments, foundations, institutional consultants, and funds of funds. The event will also feature over 5 hours of networking time. Please see the promotional video on the conference below:
This conference is expected to sell out well in advance. For more information or to register please visit www.apgainingtheedge.com.
