Where the Alternatives Industry Comes Together on the Beach.
Now in its fourth year, Global Fund Forum is the highlight of the year for Hedge Connection. Over three days, the alternatives industry will gather at the beautiful Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda to network with peers, learn from experts and effectively connect and build relationships.
We have an exciting and diverse speaker lineup for 2017. Several of the highlights include the Premier of Bermuda, who will welcome us to the island, William Marr, Senior Managing Director and Head of the Alternatives business at State Street Global Advisor, the third largest asset manager in the world, who will discuss SSGA's "Fearless Girl" statue and their interest in promoting diversity in the workplace, In addition, we will host a young man who escaped from North Korea who will describe growing up in the country and his brave escape to freedom.
Our intense networking and content program includes one-on-one meetings, Table Talks co-hosted by experts and allocators, a track of panel discussions and fireside chats about timely topics. Also included in the program are Forum favorites: Deal Ring (our Shark Tank style event), Beach Dinner party, Cigars Under the Stars, and boat cruise.
We look forward to having you join us in Bermuda.
