Last year, more hedge funds closed their doors than in any year since the financial crisis, yet total assets under management actually increased. This session brings together industry leaders to discuss the future of hedge funds and how the industry is evolving. Questions will include:

  • Can small and mid-size single strategy funds compete in the era of multi-strategy platforms?
  • How can funds continue to attract the best talent?
  • Is the era of the start-up hedge fund over?
