Today, Hedge Connection, Inc. welcomed General Wesley Clark (Ret.) and NBA star Baron Davis to the program of their 6th Annual Global Fund Forum, taking place October 23 and 24, 2019 at The Times Center in New York. They will be joining distinguished keynote presenters, Steve Kuhn of IDEAL Immigration and Mark Yusko of Morgan Creek Capital Management.

Global Fund Forum’s 2019 program is replete with leading allocators, poignant panels, and keynote presentations. Thought leadership is playing its biggest role in the agenda to date and will feature conversations with large investors in the hedge fund industry, new trends in investing (investing in diversity), and immigration reform. Table Talks and Deal Ring are unique Global Fund Forum program staples that consistently provide dynamic, yet informative, networking opportunities.

“Global Fund Forum has always been about building relationships within the financial community while harnessing the thought leadership of our trusted partners and presenters,” says Hedge Connection CEO Lisa Vioni. “For 2019, we will continue to expand on this concept with prolific allocator participation, Table Talks, which is co-hosted by TD Prime Services, and Deal Ring, moderated by our expert coach Jim Rosebush.”
