HFA Southeast Chapter


For investors, understanding the opportunities and risks of hedge fund strategies is of paramount importance. The Southeast Chapter of HFA invites you to join us on October 28, 2010 for valuable insights from an expert panel on which strategies are outperforming their peers; where fund of hedge funds managers expect returns to be generated in the months ahead, and how high-net-worth investors should approach due diligence and selection.

This event is complimentary for HFA member managers and investors. Investors and managers who are not HFA members can register for $25/per person.  A limited number of service providers may register for $100/per person.  Service providers who are HFA or Miami Finance Forum members will be given priority. Others will be waitlisted and notified a week prior to the event if approved.
