The Forum for the Next Generation of Fund Managers

Meet With Active Emerging Manager Investors

With powerful investors attending the forum it is a great opportunity to hear what they look for in emerging managers and to meet and connect with potential backers.

Hear From Successful Emerging Fund Managers

Launching and growing a fund is an arduous task. Learn from successful managers as they give insight into the key points which gave them the edge in a competitive field.

Network with over 150 attendees

The New York forum is the perfect opportunity to catch up with existing contacts and to build new and lasting relationships.

New This Year

In addition to our hedge fund sessions, we will feature a stream of panel discussions devoted to private equity topics. So, whether you are a start-up / emerging private equity firm or hedge fund, this conference is sure to provide you with synergistic and practical insights.

Against a backdrop of a complex regulatory and tax environment, increased demands for transparency and customization, an uncertain investing climate -- you can tap into expert advice; hear from seeders, allocators, investors and stakeholders; and position yourself for future opportunities while networking with your peers.

Topics include the economic and regulatory environment updates, best practices in launching funds, creating value, connecting with investors, lessons learned from peers, operations, and tax.

Limited Free Places for Fund Managers & Investors

If you are starting up a new fund, are an emerging manager with less than $500m AUM or an investor into funds you may be entitled to attend this event for free.
