The Hedge Fund Association, an industry lobby group, has tapped April J. Rudin to chair its newly created high net worth advisory board.
Rudin, who has over 20 years of corporate and financial services marketing experience, specializes in wealth marketing, next generation, and digital and social media for this specialist market. In her new post, she will develop educational programs and networking events for high net worth investors.
“The Hedge Fund Journal calculates that around 40% of total worldwide investment in hedge funds comes from high net worth individuals,” said Rudin, in a statement. “This new initiative is designed to enable the HFA to provide more directly focused advice and guidance to that key constituency. I look forward to doing the best I can in my exciting new role.”
The HFA has also promoted Triton Capital's Ryan Mitchell to regional director of its West Coast chapter. Mitchell, a senior vice president at the managed futures shop, has more than 12 years of experience in the alternative investments industry, including trading, manager research, portfolio construction and portfolio management.
“Ryan has been instrumental in developing the HFA’s West Coast Chapter,” said Ron Geffner, vice president of the HFA. “His promotion is well deserved and we value his guidance as the HFA continues to address the needs of industry participants in this important region.”
The Hedge Fund Association is an international not-for-profit organization made up of hedge funds, funds of funds, family offices, high net worth individuals and service providers.
