Hedge Connection's Second Annual Global Fund Forum Supplements One-On-One Meetings With New Speakers, an Allocation Competition, Investor Panels and Workshops in Bermuda, June 22-24, 2015

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 09, 2015) - Hedge Connection, the patented hedge fund marketing platform, will host the second annual Global Fund Forum at the Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda on June 22 - 24. This year's conference will focus on connecting alternative investment managers with allocators, while invited speakers will provide thought leadership to all attendees. Over the course of the past decade, Hedge Connection has hosted numerous investor-introductory events across North America.

At the core of the Global Fund Forum will be one-on-one meetings between fund managers and allocators in private Forum Suites arranged prior to the conference using Hedge Connection's proprietary scheduling technology. New for 2015, the conference will include investor panels, workshops and a Shark Tank style asset allocation competition called The Pitch.

"We selected Bermuda because of its beauty and location -- less than 2 hours from the East Coast," says Hedge Connection CEO Lisa Vioni. "We are excited to build off last year's event with a newer, bigger agenda that includes our allocation competition, The Pitch. Once again we will leverage the Hedge Connection technology and ecosystem to bring the most efficient and seamless experience to our attendees."

Global Fund Forum will take full advantage of the new venue with a Beachside Dinner Party, Cigars Under the Stars, and an afternoon Boat Cruise. For fund managers, registration includes advance promotion to the entire Hedge Connection ecosystem. Qualified allocators receive a complimentary event pass that includes the same meeting and networking opportunities and event technology access as managers. To view the full agenda and register, please visit www.hedgeconnection.com/gff/. Watch the Global Fund Forum video here.
