HFA Midwest Chapter Symposium

 

The alternative investment industry has been fundamentally changed by the events of the last two years. The collapse of the credit markets, highly publicized fraud, and sharply lower returns have required that the industry adapt now to a totally new world. Add to this expected new regulations, new legal structures, and significant demands by investors, and it's clear that raising assets today is more challenging than ever before. Attend and gain insights from our panel of distinguished experts as they highlight the criteria for raising capital in this new world. This symposium is perfectly suited for emerging managers and CTAs as well as up-and-coming hedge funds and funds of funds looking to get to the next level.

Hosted by Morningstar, this Hedge Fund Association Midwest Chapter event includes cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Registration is complimentary for HFA members, hedge fund managers and investors. This event is not open to service providers that are not HFA members. Due to limited space there is a no-show charge of $75, so if your plans change please cancel at least 48 hours in advance.
