Hedge Fund Leadership Conference

November 4 & 5, 2019  |  The Roosevelt Hotel, 45 E. 45th St. New York, NY

Sold Out

The first four Gaining the Edge events sold out well in advance. We expect this event to sell out with 750 registrations, including over 350 of the world's most influential investors in hedge funds. 11 panels and 6 hours of informal networking time will incite robust commentary and debate amongst hedge fund employees, investors, and others in the industry about the various ways to enhance the risk adjusted returns of a diversified hedge fund portfolio.


Unlike most hedge fund conferences featuring hedge fund managers who are heavily biased relative to their strategy, this conference will only feature leading hedge fund investors as panelists, who will provide insights about what hedge fund strategies look the most attractive given current capital market valuations and economic forecasts. Speakers include decision makers at pensions, endowments, foundations, institutional consultants, and funds of funds. 

Agecroft Partners will donate 100% of the profits to nonprofit organizations that benefit children. Help for Children will be one of the main beneficiaries of this event.
