AIMA Holds Keynote Conference In Hong Kong

Mar 5 2012 | 9:31am ET

The Alternative Investment Management Association, a hedge fund lobby group, will hold its annual global policy and regulatory forum on March 8 in Hong Kong.

The invitation-only event brings together senior policymakers, regulators and leading industry figures from around the world to discuss key policy and regulatory issues on what the group calls an ‘off-the-record’ basis.

Hong Kong Financial Secretary John Tsang will open the event, which will feature speeches from the CEO and deputy CEO of the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission, Ashley Alder and Alexa Lam.

“The forum offers an important opportunity for the global hedge fund industry to engage constructively with policymakers and regulators,” said Christophe Lee, chairman of AIMA Hong Kong. “We are delighted that such an important international event for the industry is being held in Hong Kong.”
