The Hedge Fund Association has appointed prominent global wealth consultant Hannah Shaw Grove to its high-net-worth advisory board.
Hannah Shaw Grove is one of the world's leading authorities on the high-net-worth population and how they think. Her reputation was built on more than 20 years of hands-on work and primary research with wealthy families and their trusted advisors. She is a founder and executive editor of Private Wealth, a publication for high-end service professionals with ultra-affluent clients. She is also the author of 10 books on topics including family offices, hedge funds and wealth management.
“The HFA is very pleased to welcome Hannah to our global leadership team. As hedge funds prepare to communicate directly to affluent investors and their financial advisors in new ways, Hannah’s knowledge will be instrumental to HFA members around the world,” said Mitch Ackles, HFA president.
“Hannah brings unparalleled expertise and contacts to the HFA High-Net-Worth Advisory Board. With her involvement, we will deliver a variety of top-notch programming and educational forums to help hedge funds engage with the private investor community in a deeper and more meaningful way,” said April Rudin, chair of the HFA's high-net-worth advisory board and CEO of The Rudin Group, a wealth marketing firm.
Together, Rudin and Grove will host the first in a new series of actionable programs designed to help hedge fund managers maximize growth opportunities with high-net-worth investors. A complimentary webinar is scheduled for August 21, 2013 to discuss best practices in marketing and advertising programs in anticipation of the enactment of the JOBS Act.
