Managed Funds Association president and CEO Richard H. Baker today announced that MFA has formed an alliance with the New York Hedge Fund Roundtable, a community of over 1,000 hedge fund professionals, investors, and professional service firms.
“Our affiliation with the New York Hedge Fund Roundtable allows us to exchange information and ideas with professionals located at one of the most important hubs within our industry,” said Baker. “We look forward to participating in collaborative, educational discussions on industry best practices, regulatory policy, and a wide range of other issues.”
The affiliation furthers MFA’s efforts to align members of the alternative investment community and unify the industry’s voice. NYHFR will benefit from MFA’s expertise and insight on federal and international issues. Additionally, members of NYHFR will have access to MFA’s frequent educational events and conferences.
Timothy P. Selby, President of NYHFR, said, “Our alliance with MFA fits perfectly with New York Hedge Fund Roundtable’s mission to educate members about topical, significant industry issues and to endorse best practices and the highest ethical behavior. We believe this affiliation is another significant step toward unifying the industry voice at a time when clear, informed communication is more important than ever.”
MFA recently announced alliances with the Connecticut Hedge Fund Association and the Mid Atlantic Hedge Fund Association. Other affiliations with regional hedge fund associations are expected to be announced in the coming months.
