The roster of industry legends and previously under-the-radar newcomers appearing at the 2007 Absolute Return Symposium, including seldom-seen pros from the distressed, quantitative and long/short worlds, is nearly complete.
Among the most recent arrivals on the program are Josh Friedman, who co-founded Canyon Partners together with Mitch Julis and has joined the event/distressed panel. The all-star lineup for this session will also include Pershing Square Capital Managements Bill Ackman, York Capital Managements Dan Schwartz and Fir Tree Partners Jeff Tannenbaum. AIGs Bob Discolo will moderate.
