100 Women in Hedge Funds announces attendance of HRH The Countess of Wessex GCVO, at inaugural Hong Kong gala

Thursday, September 12, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - 100 Women in Hedge Funds, a leading non-profit organization for professionals in the alternative investments industry, is pleased to announce that HRH The Countess of Wessex will be the Royal Guest of Honour at 100WHF's inaugural Hong Kong Gala to be held on November 20 at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum.

100WHF has been holding regular industry educational events for its members and peer leverage sessions for senior practitioners in Hong Kong since 2007. After many years of successful charitable fundraising in the US, UK and Switzerland, 100WHF will host its first Charitable Gala event in Asia, with funds raised benefitting The Hong Kong Award for Young People (AYP), in affiliation with The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award Foundation.

100WHF's three core pillars include industry education, peer leverage and philanthropy. The organisation's philanthropic mission is to utilise its collective abilities and expertise in order to give back to the local community in an impactful way. To date, 100WHF has raised close to USD$30 million globally for charitable causes. The global philanthropic theme for 2013 is mentoring.

Firms interested in the few remaining sponsorship opportunities for the Hong Kong Gala, please contact Hannah Goodwin, our 100WHF Hong Kong Gala Chair, at hkgala@100womeninhedgefunds.org or go to http://www.100womeninhedgefunds.org/pages/hongkong_gala_attend.php to register for a table (very limited number remaining).
