SALT: Coverage Of The Biggest (And Best) Hedge Fund Industry Confab Of The Year

May 18 2011 | 6:18pm ET by Deirdre Brennan

Unlike many hedge fund conferences, the annual SALT Conference, which took place last week  in Las Vegas, welcomes the press with open arms. Only a handful of wary souls requested that their remarks be off the record. However, no one seemed to heed that request when it came to Pres. George W. Bush and his revelation about where he was and what he was doing when he heard that Osama bin Laden was dead: “I was eating a soufflé at a restaurant called Rise. That’s R-I-S-E,” said Bush, spelling each letter carefully. He also corrected the moderator when she mistakenly said “Mr.” Obama…“You mean President Obama,” he said.

Below is a collection of articles that include coverage from last week’s event. If you see any other articles you’d like included, please email me a link or simply paste it in the comments below. Also, If you have any good photos from SALT that you’d like to share, send them my way (dbrennan@finalternatives.com).
