CT Hedge Fund Association Presents:
Working with Hedge Fund Consultants

Thursday September 12, 2013 | Greenwich, CT

Multiple reports from asset managers show that hedge fund allocations are on the rise. One report from Hedge Fund Research, shows hedge fund assets peaked at $2.52 trillion in Q3 last year. A J.P. Morgan report found that institutions were responsible for 60% of these assets, up from 43% in 2007. Another report from Deutsche Bank showed that 57% of institutional investors surveyed increased the assets they placed in hedge funds in 2012. As institutional investment in hedge fund strategies continues its rapid growth, education regarding this complex asset class is increasingly vital, and the role of the pension consultant as gatekeeper and trusted advisor has never been more important. The CTHFA’s 3Q symposium will discuss the role of the pension consultant and provide our members with valuable insights into the inner working of these organizations and how best to approach them and get your story heard.
