Context Capital Partners and the former management team of AlphaMetrix Events, Mark Salameh and Geoff Marcus, have joined forces to launch a new industry conference organizer.
Context Summits will launch a series of independent hedge fund/investor conferences, starting with one that had already been planned by AlphaMetrix—the Miami Summit 2014, January 29-31, at the Fontainebleau Hotel.
Hedge fund services firm AlphaMetrix announced in November it would close down its investment pools after it was charged with misappropriation of funds by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. The event-planning arm was not involved in the alleged wrongdoing.
“Context has been a leader and innovator in the hedge fund and private equity markets and we have a strong understanding of the needs of the industry,” said Ron Biscardi, Context managing director. “The goal of Context Summits is to create deeper industry knowledge and foster connections that lead to business building partnerships for everyone in our industry.”
Founded in 2005, Context Capital Partners is a seeding firm to hedge funds, liquid alternative mutual funds and private equity funds. Since its inception, Context has led 13 seed deals totaling approximately $300 million.
