Pequot sponsors Rocktoberfest

by

Art Samberg's Pequot Capital Management sponsored this year's Rocktoberfest blowout, which last month raised about $350,000 for A Leg to Stand On (ALTSO), an industry charity that buys prosthetic limbs for children in Haiti, Colombia and India. The night's tour de force was Pequot's own Michael Corasaniti, of the hedge fund band JAM Partners. ALTSO and Octagon Asset Management founder C. Mead Welles also encored with his own group, the Subscribers.
