Pinnacle Awards Coming in June

Friday, March 15, 2013

The Pinnacle Awards Event, now in its 2nd year, is unique because of the award category types. Typically award winners have demonstrated superior risk management and diversification methods.

The awards competition highlights the unprecedented growth of the industry and transformation gripping the industry. "The main change that I've seen over the past several years is the growing acceptance of Managed Futures as a viable and accepted alternative investment category among the ranks of the largest and most sophisticated investors," noted conference founder Sol Waksman. "As a result of this 'institutionalization,' managers have become more focused on risk management and moderate returns. To use a sports analogy, someone who can hit singles and doubles consistently is valued more than a home run hitter who strikes out often."

Presented by CME Group and BarclayHedge, Ltd, the purpose of the Pinnacle Awards is to recognize and honor excellence within the CTA community. It is the only awards event that is focused entirely on Managed Futures. This year's event, scheduled for June 19 in Chicago, has been expanded to include a Meet the Nominees networking event earlier in the day. Admission to both events is by invitation only. Investors that are interested in attending can contact Sol Waksman (swaksman@barclayhedge.com) and request a complimentary registration.
