The Hedge Fund Association offers travel through The Appointment Group

Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - The Hedge Fund Association (“HFA”) announced that it has teamed up with global travel management company The Appointment Group (“TAG”) as its exclusive travel partner. In this partnership, the HFA’s members will be able to take advantage of TAG’s quality service offerings geared specifically for the hedge fund traveler, which include specially negotiated hotel rates and international airfares, along with in-house 24-hour customer service to meet their complex and ever changing schedules.

“Given the constant travel required by hedge fund executives, we are looking forward to offering the HFA’s members a hassle-free and cost-effective way to book their trips, with the highest possible service and other attractive amenities for their business excursions,” said Daniel Price, Managing Director, TAG.

“With the costs to run a hedge fund increasing due to both investor and regulatory demand, prompting allocators, hedge fund managers and service providers to spend more money overall than in previous years, the HFA’s members will be able to save money on travel expenses by taking advantage of TAG’s appealing offerings,” said Mitch Ackles, HFA’s President.
