CTA Expo New York April 25, 2013

Monday, April 22, 2013

CTAExpo was established to provide a venue where Commodity Trading Advisors and Emerging Managers could meet potential capital sources and focus on issues that are crucial to growing their businesses in today’s changing economic and regulatory environment. In just four years CTAExpo has grown to offering one day conferences in New York, London, Chicago and Miami. Registrations have grown for our conference in Chicago from 140 in 2008 to 500 in 2011.

The attendance of our previous CTAExpo conferences has been heavily weighted to capital sources and traders. Typically less than 25% of our attendees are from service providers. In 2012, almost 40% of our attendees had never attended a CTAExpo conference before. Capital sources, including asset allocators, pool operators and professional clients attend CTAExpo events free.
