Sohn Lineup Includes Ackman, Chanos, Druckenmiller, Einhorn

Mar 15 2013 | 12:35am ET

The Ira Sohn Conference always features some of the highest-profile hedge fund managers in the business. But this year, its organizers may have outdone themselves.

The March 8 confab will feature Pershing Square Capital Management's William Ackman and Greenlight Capital's David Einhorn, two of the most well-known hedge fund activists. But the star-studded lineup doesn't end there. Also dropping in will be Hayman Capital Management's Kyle Bass, Kynikos Associates' James Chanos, retired Duquesne Capital Management founder Stanley Druckenmiller, former FrontPoint Partners star manager and Emrys Partners founder Steven Eisman, DoubleLine Capital's Jeffrey Gundlach, Canyon Partners' Mitchell Julis, George Soros protégé and Corvex Capital founder Keith Meister and Elliott Management founder Paul Singer.

Einhorn is a perennial favorite of the Sohn conference, and frequently uses it to announce his latest investment theses. At last year's conference, many expected him to tackle nutritional supplements company Herbalife, but that honor instead fell to Ackman, who may use the podium to further his argument against the company.
