Welcome to our inaugural Opalesque Connecticut Roundtable!
Connecticut is the the home of 17 of the world's top 100 single and multi-strategy hedge funds and has roughly 1/3 of the global hedge fund assets under management. Given the proximity to New York, it could be argued that over half of the world's hedge fund assets can be reached within an hour's drive.
As a consequence, Connecticut is also the base for some of the world's most sophisticated hedge fund-of-funds and hedge fund advisers.
In this Roundtable, we continue our exploration on how the industry has changed, and is still changing, after the events of 2008. The Roundable was sponsored by Taussig Capital and took place in Greenwich, CT on Sept. 17th with:
Virginia Reynolds Parker, Chief Executive Office, Parker Global Strategies
Michael Kelly, Co-CEO and Chief Investment Office, FrontPoint Partners
David Saunders, Managing Director, K2 Advisors
Brian Lasher, Head of Research, Federal Street Partners
Ron Lake, President, Lake Partners
Ken Shewer, Chairman, Co-CIO and Co-CEO, The Kenmar Group
Daniel Rizzuto, President, DKR Fusion
Many of the participants are very confident about the growth prospects of the hedge fund industry. There have been views that with the continued institutionalization, we could even witness the emergence of some major complexes with assets in the order of $50-100 billion AUM.
