Join other professional investors prior to the Welcome Reception for TalkingHedge’s Managed Futures and Global Macro event.

The mini-summit has been designed specifically to meet the needs of institutional investors looking for unique talent in the managed futures/global macro space.  The invitation-only, closed event, will offer intimate rotating roundtable discussions between five unique, institutional ready fund managers and 3-5 investors; allowing participants to hear both what the managers believe to be their edge, and why and where other investors are allocating to the space.



The event offers an excellent opportunity for investors to update their professional knowledge on specialized trading strategies, while allowing for networking with other professional investors via an opening lunch, the event itself, and following cocktail reception.
