Building off of the momentum of past conferences, Golden Networking brings back Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2012, "Getting Ready to Manage $5 Trillion by 2016", now in New York, Chicago and London (www.HedgeFundsLeadersForum.com).
New York City, NY, USA (September 3, 2012) -- Forbes' Susan Adams had good news for the significant proportion of undergraduate and graduate population who chose alternative investments: Hedge funds are indeed hiring right now. How to get to know where to go? The key is networking at Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2012, "Getting Ready to Manage $5 Trillion by 2016" (http://www.HedgeFundsLeadersForum.com).
The first step in considering a hedge fund job is to think long and hard about whether your personality is suited to the pressure-cooker environment of most funds. "The competition to keep the edge and to outperform is very high". Consider not only whether you truly thrive under pressure but also whether you're good at synthesizing and evaluating a lot of data quickly.
If you're ready to make the leap, get ready to be aggressive about networking, says Roy Cohen, a career and executive coach and author of The Wall Street Professional's Survival Guide. "Hedge fund types have short attention spans, and they are not very comfortable networking," he observes. That means you have to push hard yourself and avoid taking rejection personally.
"Leverage whatever contacts you have". Because hedge funds are unregulated and tend to keep their business under wraps, they don't hold events that are open to the public. "You can't just walk into a hedge fund conference and sign up".
How to make those contacts? On September 25 in New York, October 9 in Chicago and December 12 in London, hundreds of the most important players in alternative investments will gather for all-star agendas at Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2012, "Getting Ready to Manage $5 Trillion by 2016" (http://www.HedgeFundsLeadersForum.com). A virtual who’s who will soon follow as one legendary manager after another will take the stage. Billions of investable assets will be represented by influential local and international investors who will listen with rapt attention as star managers and analysts discuss and debate the biggest issues facing the industry today.
Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2012, "Getting Ready to Manage $5 Trillion by 2016" will provide attendees in New York, Chicago and London with the most up-to-date review of where this ever-changing industry stands and how regulatory and alpha expectation s will impact it. Recognized managers, investors, experts, regulators, and strategists will return to Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2012 to provide the information practitioners are looking for in an open and unbiased environment, highly conducive to the most efficient and effective networking.
