Family Office Insight



   Thursday November 14th   |  Family Office Insight      

High net worth individuals and families were early adopters of hedge funds and other alternative investment strategies. We have all read about how the hedge fund industry has been rapidly institutionalizing, and the CTHFA has conducted several symposia discussing how institutional investors and their consultants think about and make hedge fund allocation decisions.

Even so, HNW investors remain an important source of capital, with very unique criteria for both performance and infrastructure. Please join us on November 14th as we host our first Family Office symposium, bringing together several investment representatives of large family offices to share with us their insights into this exclusive world.
