New York Hedge Fund Roundtable changes name

Thursday, September 28, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - The New York Hedge Fund Roundtable announced today that it is changing its name to the New York Alternative Investment Roundtable. The name change is part of an effort to more accurately represent the organization's focus on promoting ethics and best practices within the entire universe of alternative investments, not just within the hedge fund industry.

This rebranding reflects The New York Alternative Investment Roundtable's evolution to an organization that regularly sheds light on some of the industry's most important issues and trends and the reasons that industry participants should be aware of them. From its monthly in-person forums, to monthly educational calls, The Alternative Investment Roundtable will continue to recruit high profile speakers within the industry to highlight both topics of interest to its membership and those of the greatest importance for them to be aware of.

"The new name - The New York Alternative Investment Roundtable - will make it easier for us to get the message out that our organization has always been focused on highlighting timely issues throughout the entire alternative investment arena and keeping our membership apprised of the most important issues within the industry," said Adam Weinstein, president of the New York Alternative Investment Roundtable. "We strive to create a forum where members of the alternative investment community can learn about a myriad of topical issues from industry experts experienced in those areas, and where they can discuss such issues with others industry participants."

Originally founded as the New York Hedge Fund Roundtable in 1999 the New York Alternative Investment Industry is a non-profit organization focused on providing a forum for thought leadership, where industry professionals have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills and to network with other individuals committed to advancing the industry with the highest ethical standards. In addition to industry topics, the Roundtable highlights a different New York City area charity or philanthropy regularly to expose members to organizations they may be interested in becoming involved with or supporting monetarily. The Roundtable's membership consists of investors, fund managers, analysts and other industry professionals who regularly meet to discuss current issues within the industry and to connect with peers.
