The Hedge Fund Association, a non-profit alternative investment industry association, has expanded to Latin America.
The association’s board has tapped LatAm Alternatives CEO Victor Hugo Rodriquez as director of the Latin American regional chapter.
Marcia Rothschild, head of BNP Paribas securities services Brazil, and Otavio Vieira, managing director/CIO of Safdié Gestão de Patrimônio (a wholly subsidiary of Banque Safdié), will serve as co-directors of the Brazilian Chapter. In addition, Juan Luis Rivera, partner at Moneda Asset Management, will be appointed director of the Chilean chapter and Daniel Osorio, CEO of Andean Capital Management, will serve as director of the Colombian chapter.
HFA President David Friedland, of Magnum U.S. Investments, says the hedge fund industry has become global in scope and “it makes sense for the HFA to expand so that we can advocate on behalf of the international alternatives industry.”
The HFA now counts four regional U.S. chapters, Cayman Islands and EU chapters and an Asian affiliate. The HFA will launch the Latin American Chapter this summer in Miami.
