HFA Symposium: Chicago Alpha 2014
January 9, 2014 | Chicago
The pursuit of exceptional risk-adjusted return has grown increasingly competitive against a backdrop of significant central bank activity. Hedge funds currently manage over $2.5 trillion in AUM as U.S. equity markets have surged. We will explore a number of topics regarding key dynamics of the hedge fund industry at the start of 2014.
