Hatteras Funds to hold five-city "Meet The Managers" forum

Monday, July 23, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: Hatteras Funds, a boutique alternative investment specialist providing unique alternative investment solutions for financial advisors and their clients, will host a series of forums across the U.S. for financial advisors, home office research teams and consultants to meet the underlying hedge fund managers of the Hatteras Alternative Mutual Funds (Alpha Hedged Strategies Fund, Long/Short Equity Fund, and Long/Short Debt Fund).

Stemming from the success of a similar forum hosted in 2011 by Hatteras in New York City, the 2012 forums will visit five cities in September. The series is being held in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the Hatteras Alpha Hedged Strategies Fund (ALPHX), which will celebrate a decade of managing alternative investment strategies in a daily liquid mutual fund.

Along with portfolio managers from Hatteras, the forums will feature hedge fund managers from Inflection Partners, OMT Capital Management, Tamarack Capital Management, SW Asset Management, ISF Management, FrontFour Capital Group, 2100 Xenon Group, Chartwell Investment Partners and Raven Rock Capital Management.

"We learned from the tremendous feedback we received from attendees at our 2011 Meet the Managers forum that there is growing appetite for greater transparency and access to the underlying managers of our funds," said Robert Worthington, President of Hatteras. "This year, we have expanded the number of participating managers and will be bringing the event to multiple cities in order to provide Advisors with the opportunity to meet the underlying hedge fund managers and hear how they implement their alternative strategies."

The schedule for the forums is:

September 11 - San Francisco, CA September 12 - Los Angeles, CA September 18 - Boston, MA September 19 - Chicago, IL September 20 - Atlanta, GA

"These forums are the natural extension of our commitment to deliver institutional-quality alternative investment solutions." added Worthington.

The Hatteras Alpha Hedged Strategies Fund (ALPHX), which has grown to $476 million in assets under management, will mark its 10-year anniversary in September. The multi-strategy, multi-manager, daily liquid alternative mutual fund, offers position-level transparency and allows investors to increase their allocation to alternatives without compromising liquidity. The Fund utilizes 5 hedge fund strategies in its attempt to achieve consistent returns while maintaining a high correlation to the HFRI Fund of Funds Composite Index and low correlation to traditional financial market indices.

Hatteras also manages several other alternative solutions including two single-strategy, multi-manager alternative mutual funds, the Hatteras Long/Short Debt Fund (HFINX) and Hatteras Long/Short Equity Fund (HLSIX), and a variable insurance trust fund, Hatteras Alpha Hedged Strategies Variable Fund (ALPVX). In addition, Hatteras Funds manages the Hatteras Core Alternatives Fund, a solution for hedge fund strategies and private investments, and several global private equity and venture capital funds.
