HFA Northeast Chapter Symposium
The JOBS Act has made it possible for certain hedge funds to advertise. Will that result in big funds getting even bigger, or will smaller and mid-size funds also benefit from the change in regulations? If you are interested in finding out the answers, and gaining insights on how you can improve your firm’s marketing efforts, then this event should not be missed.
