The Summit will again open, as has become
traditional in recent years, with a big-picture macro panel to
be moderated by Gavyn Davies, the former chief economist at Goldman Sachs and chairman of the BBC.
Participants on that session will this time include Sushil
Wadhwani, whose Wadhwani Asset Management recently became a part
of Bruce Kovner's Caxton group; Jens Nystedt, a
leading economist at Louis Bacon's Moore Capital; Jonathan Lourie of Cheyne
Capital; and Barry Goodman of the U.S.-based managed-futures
firm Millburn Ridgefield, one of the longest-running firms in
the industry globally, with a track record going back to
Also featured on the first morning will be a
big-picture session focusing on the views of investors. That
session will feature Christopher Fawcett of Fauchier Partners, Nicola Meaden Grenham of Alpha
Strategic, Niels Oostenbrug of MN Services and Jim Vos of Aksia.
Keynote speakers include Andre Esteves, head of the
fast-growing Brazil-based BTG Pactual asset management and
investment banking group; Kyle Bass, founder of Dallas-based macro firm
Hayman Capital Management; and Guillaume Rambourg, the former
star European equity manager at Gartmore who is now in the
process of launching his new hedge fund business, Verrazzano
Capital, in Paris.
Regulation will be another key issue for this
year's event, including a panel on the first afternoon that
will feature Andrew Baker of AIMA and Darcy Bradbury of D. E.
Shaw, who is a director and former chairman of the Managed
Funds Association in the U.S.
As with last year's Summit, portions of the first
afternoon and second morning of the event will be allotted for
parallel stream sessions - allowing delegates a choice of two
topics for those parts of the program. These sessions will
again feature discussion of key business issues - such as
business and counterparty risk management, derivatives clearing
and trends in fund structuring both onshore and offshore.
In addition to discussion as usual on various
operational issues, investors will also feature more
prominently this year in the programme. There will be a session
on the second day on which Larry Powell of the Utah Retirement
System and Stephen Oxley of PAAMCO will be joined by others to
discuss the experiences of end-investors who have been going
direct to hedge funds, as well as the continued blurring of the
lines between consultants and funds of hedge fund groups that
are increasingly offering advice on bespoke portfolios.
Investor perspectives will also be provided on
various other panels by speakers from a variety of different
sorts of investor groups, including Hilmi Unver of Notz Stucki and Alexandre Pini of Banque Privee Edmond de
Rothschild and Heinz Blennemann from his own eponymous
U.S.-based family office.
Last but not least, the event will as always
feature panel discussions on a variety of key strategies,
including emerging markets, managed futures, equities, credit
and event driven. As details of those sessions are being
check EuroHedgeSummit.com for updates.
The event will commence with a wine-tasting on the
evening of April 24, allowing delegates who arrive early an
opportunity to collect their badges and take advantage of extra
networking time (ample time is, of course, available during the
event at the various coffee breaks, lunches and cocktail events
that will take place on April 25 and 26).
