New York (HedgeCo.net) – The Miami-based Florida Alternative Investment Association (FLAIA) hosted its inaugural “One-On-One” Capital Attraction Forum with more than 120 separate meetings, in which pre-qualified hedge funds had the opportunity to showcase their funds and strategies to over $82 billion of buy-side capital allocators.
“The genesis of the idea for the One-On-One event came from a top 5 educational endowment looking at geography as a factor for their manager search and selection process in the hedge fund space.” Michael Corcelli, FLAIA’s Chairman, commented on the event, said.
The two day event, held on April 27th & 28, provided an intimate environment for a number of the world’s largest institutional investors to meet with high quality Florida-based hedge fund managers, complemented by a select number of national and international fund managers, to explore investment management opportunities.
The keynote address was given by by Florida Governor Rick Scott, who presented the advantages of conducting business within the State of Florida and articulated his continued support of the Financial Services industry as a key industry for the state. In addition, the association is in the planning phase for a similar conference that will highlight Florida’s role as the “Gateway to Latin American Finance”.
