The Global Fund Forum (the “Forum”) will enable thousands of one-on-one meetings between institutional and family office investors and a diverse group of hedge fund managers. Participation is by invitation only and managers are selected based on their pedigree, strategy, assets under management, performance, track record and infrastructure.

Participants can also use the Forum’s Mobile App during the event to get access to their schedule, see investor and fund profiles and read about the forum sponsors.
