Investor Insight - Fund of Funds
Share |



  Event Details - Thursday, February 23rd

Welcome to 2017 and another busy programming year from the CTHFA. As many of our member firms are seeking to grow their assets, we are beginning the year by focusing on another investor segment - funds of hedge funds. The $400 billion FOF industry is an important investor segment for single hedge funds, and a crucial investor base for smaller and niche managers that are often too small to accept investments from larger institutional investors.

In our FOF program, we will hear from two local funds, each with a unique perspective on manager selection, the state of hedge funds generally, as well as the opportunities and challenges of the fund of funds business going forward.
