Bringing the Alternatives Industry Together in New York City

It is with great pleasure that Hedge Connection, along with our partner Mirae Asset Securities (USA), invite you to join us at the 5th Annual Global Fund Forum hosted in New York on October 2nd and 3rd. We will build on last year's success in offering an engaging, interactive, and entertaining event geared towards the alternatives industry.

Over two days, the alternatives industry will gather to network with peers, learn from experts, and connect and build relationships.

We have expanded our agenda this year to include two new verticals focused on blockchain disruption and private equity/deal flow, in addition to our customary hedge fund content. Supported by the Bermuda Business Development Agency, the Blockchain Track will include expert panels, fireside chats, and roundtable discussions. Mainstream Fund Services will lead our new Private Equity/Deal Flow Track that will include discussions around capital raising, sourcing deals, new technology options, in addition to several showcased companies pitching their products to investors.

Our intense networking and content program includes one-on-one meetings, Table Talks co-hosted by experts and allocators, as well as panel discussions and fireside chats on timely topics. Also included in the program are keynote speakers, Deal Ring (our Shark Tank style event), and a Casino Night.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Global Fund Forum in October.

Pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings has been an important component to the Global Fund Forum since our inaugural event in 2014. This year, we have limited participation to 26 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 roundtable for hosting private meetings.

Over this time I have been introduced to many high quality investors which has resulted in allocations into my FinTech focused strategy. Hedge Connection's events are first class and their online investor introductory technology, coupled with their content distribution capabilities, has made my marketing process easy and scalable."
