BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- It is not easy running a hedge fund these days. With more news of insider trading scandals and questionable uses of "expert networks" continuing to besiege brand name firms, the last thing a manager wants is to be the next industry punch line or worse, the focus of an investigation.
"The recent scandals have given the hedge fund industry an undeserved black eye," said Daniel Strachman, Director of Research and Strategy for the GAIM Conference Series. "However, with public scrutiny on insider trading at an all-time high and government regulators demanding more disclosures, managers have a lot more to worry about than the market itself. GAIM USA's Hedge Fund Immersion sessions, the first of their kind, will provide managers with their own expert network to help achieve healthy cultures of compliance and operational sustainability."
To be held the morning of January 24th, 2013 at GAIM USA, the Immersion sessions will feature experts in all non-investment related aspects of running a hedge fund, including compliance, legal, governance, custody, administration, marketing and due diligence.
"With stakes so high, and more and more hedge fund operating resources going towards non-investment expenses, managers cannot afford to get this wrong," said Strachman. "The Immersions allow managers to ask questions and get answers directly from experts in many different areas of the fund management industry."
For more than a decade, GAIM USA conferences have attracted thousands of asset allocators, investors, asset managers and the professional and technology solution providers who service them.
