SALT Conference 2011

Hedge Fund Conference Judged a Success

I had the opportunity to make it to one day of the SALT conference in Las Vegas this week.  As I talked to managers, investors and service

providers, it became clear that the attendees were excited about the speakers, the panels and the networking opportunities.  For the most part, it seemed to me that most people were at the conference for the following reasons:

  • to hear what is going on in areas outside of their expertise
  • promotion – many service providers were there
  • to have in-person meetings with investors
  • to have in-person meetings with managers
  • general networking

I found it to be a great opportunity to have conversations and meetings with fellow service providers as well as potential clients and I certainly look forward to going back next year.
