Yankee Stadium is no stranger to star-studded lineups. But while the House that Ruth Built is used to hosting baseball's all-stars, today the stadium welcomes some hedge fund hall of famers.
The big ballpark in the Bronx is the site of a Goldman Sachs capital introduction event, and will feature SAC Capital Advisors' Steven Cohen, Pershing Square Capital Management's William Ackman, Saba Capital Management's Boaz Weinstein, Maverick Capital's Lee Ainslee, Millennium Management's Israel Englander and Glenview Capital Partners' Larry Robbins.
All told, about 70 hedge fund managers will meet with as many as 500 potential investors at the Fifth Annual U.S. Hedge Fund Symposium; each investor will get to meet with as many as eight hedge fund managers, who will give 45-minute talks to small groups.
