Thank you to all who helped make this year’s FINforums Annual Hedge Fund Summit such a great success! It was a lively, informative conference, and my colleagues and I have received great feedback from many of you, which we sincerely appreciate.
I'd also like to extend a big "thank you" to all of our wonderful speakers as well as the sponsors, Smarsh and Eze Castle, and the oranizing partners, Hedge Fund PR, FINalternatives and Seigenthaler PR-NY, who made the event possible.
And a special thanks to the chairman of the event, John Seigenthaler, for all his hard work both organizing the summit, and, as he likes to put it, “keeping the trains running on time” during the day of the event.
My colleague, senior reporter Mary Campbell has put together a piece covering the highlights of Catalpa Capital CIO Joseph McAlinden's keynote address and the Alternative Alternatives panel.
Check back with FINalternatives over the coming days for more articles, photos and video highlights of the event.
