Dear Reader,

When we did our first Opalesque U.K. Roundtable in June of 2008, the hedge fund industry still had the worst storm ahead. Now, one year after the unforgettable events of Q4 2008, the industry is still restructuring, but the survivors move strongly forward.

In this new Opalesque Roundtable, you will get the inside track on:

  • How did some of the largest UK hedge fund operations fare during 2008?
  • What changes were implemented thereafter?
  • What are the opportunities hedge funds and their investors are focusing on right now?
  • How to set up and use managed accounts?
  • Will investors embrace UCITS 3 funds which are increasingly launched by alternative asset management firms?
  • The Pros and Cons of being a public hedge fund manager
  • How do U.K.-based managers react to the AIFM Directive?
  • With personal income taxes reaching 50%, who will be migrating to Switzerland?
The 2009 Opalesque U.K. Roundtable was sponsored by Newedge Prime Brokerage Group (www.newedgegroup.com) and took place at their London office on September 8th with:
  1. Anthony Ward, Co-Founder of Armajaro and non-executive Chairman of Armajaro Trading Limited
  2. Aref Karim, Founder, Quality Capital Management
  3. Douglas Shaw, Managing Director Proprietary Alpha Strategies, BlackRock
  4. Duncan Crawford, Head of Capital Introductions, Prime Brokerage Group, Newedge Group
  5. Emmanuel Roman, Co-Chief Executive Officer, GLG Partners
  6. Giles White, Partner and CIO, MaxCap Partners
  7. Lawrence Staden, Founder, GLC
  8. Max Gottschalk, Senior Managing Director, Gottex
  9. Oliver Dobbs, CIO of Portfolio Management, CQS
