HFA Symposium

On Monday, September 8th the Hedge Fund Association & Bloomberg are proud to present the inaugural HFA Risk Insights Symposium: Navigating the New Normal. This special event will provide a comprehensive look at the critical risks facing hedge funds and the global alternative investment industry today. Headwinds towards the "new normal" point to regulatory driven market structure changes, and the need for a coherent service architecture to effectively compete for capital flows. Entrepreneur, philanthropist, and three-term mayor of New York City Michael R. Bloomberg will deliver opening remarks, followed by thought leaders touching on macro events and sharing perspectives that have transformed the industry landscape, along with three expert panel discussions, and closing with cocktails and networking.

This event is complimentary and open exclusively to hedge fund risk professionals, risk officers, portfolio managers, traders, institutional hedge fund investors, and clients of Bloomberg.
