Managed Funds Association announced new alliance with Texas Hedge Fund Association

Tuesday, March 09, 2010
Opalesque Industry Updates - Managed Funds Association (MFA) President and CEO Richard H. Baker, today announced that MFA has formed an alliance with the Texas Hedge Fund Association (THFA), an education and advocacy organization that represents the hedge fund and managed futures industry in Texas and the surrounding states.

“MFA is continuing to forge links with regional, grassroots industry organizations and is pleased to welcome the Texas Hedge Fund Association as an affiliate,” said Richard H. Baker, MFA President and CEO. “Strong, active groups like THFA will play an important role in our increasingly unified efforts to educate policy makers, regulators, and pension recipients about the value of our industry.”

This newest affiliation gives THFA members a direct line into MFA communications, advocacy, education, and networking programs – including three yearly MFA conferences and many issues-based seminars. MFA will use the alliance to further unify the industry voice among a broad community consisting of managers, commodity trading advisers, investors, and service providers.

“By affiliating with MFA we are able to provide our members with opportunities for dialogue, education, and networking at a national and international level,” said Christopher A. Zook, THFA Chairman of the Board. “THFA is dedicated to fostering industry growth while maintaining the highest standards, and we believe MFA is perfectly positioned to help us achieve those objectives.”

MFA has experienced a series of recent successes in its campaign to affiliate with regional hedge fund associations. It announced an alliance with New York Hedge Fund Roundtable in February, the Connecticut Hedge Fund Association in January, and the Mid Atlantic Hedge Fund Association in October of 2009. Other affiliations with regional hedge fund associations are expected to be announced in the coming months.
