Event Detail

Alston & Bird sponsored this seminar with featured panelists; Kris Manzano, Paul Hourigan, Jennifer Lawrence, Clay Littlefield and Matt Mamak.  Hedge funds are estimated to be a $1.1 trillion industry with approximately 9000 active hedge funds. Funds employ a variety of investment strategies, some of which use leverage and derivatives while others are more conservative and employ little or no leverage. Many hedge fund strategies seek to reduce market risk specifically by shorting equities or through the use of derivatives. Investing in hedge funds tends to be favored by sophisticated investors, including private banks, that have lived through and understand the consequences of major stock market corrections. This program addressed the Hedge Fund industry, including the following topics.
