Money managers under the microscope
Reuters Hedge Funds and Private Equity Summit
Next week sees Reuters running its annual Hedge Funds & Global Equity Summit from 23rd-25th March, with some top speakers lined up.
Hedge funds are facing their biggest challenge ever in the form of high levels of outflows and record poor performance, while many have gated or suspended redemptions.
Private equity, meanwhile, faces major concerns about the sustainability of the leveraged buyout model, as high debt levels push many portfolio companies into breaching their banking covenants.
Last year’s Summit included big-hitters such as Blackstone senior managing director John Studzinski and Eclectica hedge fund manager Hugh Hendry.
Look out for stories and blogs on the Summits section of our website and on Hedge Hub next week.
