Today, January 24th, 100WHF members will gather in New York, London, Zurich, Chicago, and Toronto to commemorate 10 years of making a difference in the alternatives community through unique educational programming, professional leverage initiatives and philanthropic endeavors.
“I am extremely proud of our accomplishments over the last 10 years, most notably the growth of our membership, the hundreds of educational events we’ve hosted, and the more than $20 million we’ve raised for charitable organizations across the globe.” Anne Popkin, Chair of the Board of 100WHF, said, “I am thrilled that our members all over the world are connected today in honor of such a momentous occasion.”
Since its formation in 2001, 100WHF has evolved from a small network of finance professionals into an organization with 10,000 members offering programs across 14 locations worldwide. All of 100WHF’s endeavors are aimed at supporting its three core pillars of Education, Professional Leverage, and Philanthropy, and recognizing leaders in the hedge funds industry. Each year, 100WHF presents its “Effecting Change” and “Industry Leadership” awards to individuals who, through their philanthropy and professional talent, have been role models in the alternatives space.
The events will commence with the ringing of the opening bell at the SIX Swiss Stock Exchange, in Zurich, followed by the London Stock Exchange, Toronto Stock Exchange and Chicago Stock Exchange, and will end with the ringing of the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange.
