Hedge Fund Association extends reach with three new regional chapters

Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update: The Hedge Fund Association today announced three appointments that demonstrate its continuing expansion. The HFA has appointed regional directors to head its newly established chapters in Australia (Adriana Kostov), Texas (Mark A Feanny, M.D.) and Utah (Ronnie Hale). These are all territories in which the HFA has not previously been represented.

“I am looking forward to the challenge of leading Hedge Fund Association activity in Australia at this exciting time in its history,” said Adriana Kostov, who has executive level experience in risk management, corporate development and compliance advisory in the financial services and family office sectors. Ms. Kostov currently holds the role of Director of Compliance & General Counsel for Excalibur Funds Management, which is headquartered in Sydney, Australia.

“This is a big responsibility in a big state, as the Hedge Fund Association continues to grow its network, and it is a responsibility I welcome,” commented Mark Feanny. Amongst his many achievements, Dr. Feanny is the co-founder of the National Healthcare Development Fund, LLC. Today he is a major influencer in a significant upcoming trend in U.S. healthcare, the Free Standing Emergency Department.

“I very much hope that my own experience and expertise will help the Hedge Fund Association in its efforts to enable a wider range of investors to access the opportunities that the asset class represents,” added Ronnie Hale. Mr. Hale has extensive experience in fund management, mergers and acquisitions, asset trading, capital raising, risk and asset management and other key sectors. He is currently the Portfolio Manager of the National Healthcare Development Fund, LLC.

“The Hedge Fund Association has built its strategy on the attraction of top industry talent into its ranks,” concluded Ron Geffner, the HFA's Vice President and a Partner at Sadis and Goldberg, LLP. “This strengthening continues that tradition; their energy, skill and enthusiasm will all be invaluable in driving the HFA forward.”

As a further demonstration of its commitment to education and development, the HFA is planning to hold member networking events in Australia and Texas later this year. Details will be announced soon.
