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.

Pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings has been an important component to the Global Fund Forum since our inaugural event. This year, we have limited participation to 30 managers in order to give the participating funds and allocators the very best experience.

The meetings will be arranged prior to the Forum on the Hedge Connection website using our proprietary scheduling technology. Each participant will complete a profile that will be posted on Hedge Connection's private website. Managers will complete a fund profile with a description of strategy, bios, performance numbers and marketing materials. Investors will answer questions that describe what they require before making an investment.

Using the meeting scheduler, investors and fund managers can research participants, communicate and set up one-on-one meetings based on their unique profiles and objectives.

Meetings will take place in 30 minute increments, with one manager hosting one investor per meeting. On the conference floor, each manager will receive their own Forum Suite for hosting private meetings.
