Redefining Hedge Funds for Institutional Portfolios

June 6-7, 2018 – Toronto

Hedge funds are transforming their businesses to create meaningful alliances with institutional investors. Asset owners and their consultants are increasingly asking for greater control, transparency, customization, governance, cash efficiencies, lower fees, smarter strategies, co-investments, information, and strategic partnerships.  Fund managers are responding with innovation.
