Industry Leaders Including Ray Dalio, Paul Tudor Jones and Dmitriy Balyasny to Headline Inaugural Event
GREENWICH, Conn., Sept. 6, 2018 /CNW/ -- More than 300 finance, public policy experts, and institutional investors will convene at the inaugural Greenwich Economic Forum in Greenwich, Conn., on November 15-16, 2018 to discuss the biggest opportunities and challenges facing global markets, public and private investments, pension plans, institutional investors, and the wider economy. Conversations will be led by luminaries including Ray Dalio, Afsaneh Beschloss, Paul Tudor Jones, and Dmitry Balyasny, with the aim to develop solutions for some of the industry's leading problems.
The forum is being organized by the Connecticut Hedge Fund Association (CTHFA) and the Greenwich Business Institute (GBI), under the auspices of Greenwich First Selectman Peter J. Tesei's Economic Advisory Committee. Topics to be addressed span the global pension crisis, allocation strategies, global private market investing, the opening of China's financial markets, trade wars, and the rise of private credit strategies.
"Our industry has some of the brightest minds in the world, but as the current economic cycle comes to a close we are facing a myriad of divergent issues," said CTHFA President and GBI Co-Chair Bruce McGuire. "In these uncertain times, it's imperative we bring together our leaders and public policy experts to collaborate on solving those issues and innovating for the future."
"While a lot of industry events provide short-term trading and economic forecasts, few adequately address the long term solutions that industry participants, regulators, and other stakeholders can advance together," said GBI Co-Chair Jim Aiello. "We and CTHFA identified this intellectual void and saw a need to design a new event that will not only discuss where the economy is headed, but also go a step further by starting conversations to help solve some of the main issues the retirement and savings industry and the global economy are grappling with."
Managers and investors in hedge funds, private equity, real estate and venture capital will share their thought leadership at this forum. Furthermore, there will be a sizeable contingent of institutional investors present, including those from the Middle East and Asia.
Greenwich First Selectman Peter J. Tesei added: "Greenwich is one of the leading financial hubs in this country and the Forum is a new and innovative initiative that highlights this. We are excited to lead these efforts and partner with CTHFA and GBI to bring the Forum to fruition."
