New speakers join Absolute Return Symposium


Third Point's Dan Loeb to join discussion of event-driven after activism.

Third Point founder Dan Loeb is among the new speakers lined up for this year's Absolute Return Symposium, to be held in New York November 3-4. Loeb will speak on the event-driven panel, addressing the question: If activism is dead, what will replace it?

Other additions include Daniel Arbess of Perella Weinberg Partners Capital Management, Doug Teitelbaum of Bay Harbour Management and Tim Babich, formerly of Silver Point and now of London-based Fortelus Capital Management, all of whom will be on the distressed panel with Marc Lasry of Avenue Capital.
