Agecroft To Donate Hedgeopolis Profits To Charity

Oct 1 2013 | 10:50am ET

Hedge fund consultant and third party-marketing firm Agecroft Partners will donate its share of the profits from an upcoming hedge fund conference to charity.

The Hedgeopolis New York conference, scheduled for November 4 at the Metropolitan Club, will focus on the hedge fund strategies offering the greatest potential to generate strong returns given current valuations levels and economic forecasts.

Hedgeopolis is organized by Agecroft Partners and the Hedge Fund Association, with support from sponsors including CNBC, Barron’s Magazine and North Street Global Fund Services.

Agecroft intends to donate its share of the gate to a Charitable Trust that will make contributions to various nonprofit organizations that benefit either children or the homeless.

Organizers hope to attract 300 participants and to date 260 people, mainly hedge fund investors and managers, have registered. As an added incentive, all non-HFA members attending the conference will be given one year's membership in the industry lobby group free.
