FINforums: Bringing Fund Managers Back To Hedge Fund Events

Mar 10 2011 | 1:41pm ET by Deirdre Brennan

In October, we officially launched our conference arm, FINforums. We did so in conjunction with Mitch Ackles, the founder and force behind Hedge Fund PR, and John Seigenthaler, the award-winning journalist, former NBC News anchor and CEO of Seigenthaler Public Relations-NY.

While there are many industry conferences vying for your attention, we have noticed that the speaker-to-service provider ratio at many of them has been sliding in favor of the service providers. Our goal at FINforums is simple: bring hedge fund managers and investors back to hedge fund conferences. And we are doing just that.

In less than two weeks we are holding our next event, Global Macro and Geopolitical Risk at the Princeton Club in Manhattan. This event features a keynote speech by Middle East expert Gary Sick, a one-one-one fireside chat with hedge fund legend Barton Biggs, and two roundtables featuring the following speakers:

          Caroline Bentz (Parker Global Strategies)
          Amer Bisat (Traxis Partners)
          Nicholas Colas (ConvergEx Group)
          Bertrand Delgado (Roubini Global Economics)
          Justin Dew (Welton Investment Corporation)
          Kenneth Kuhn (Global Capital Investments)

In addition to a top-notch lineup of speakers, there will be plenty of time for hedge fund managers and investors to network at this half-day event, which includes a sit-down lunch, a coffee break and a cocktail reception (with a scotch whiskey tasting courtesy of Chivas).

To find out more about this event and to register, visit FINforums. We hope to see you there!
