Yesterday I had the opportunity to appear on “Skewing Your Diversification” with Mark Shore of Shore Capital Management and Chris Clair, Managing Editor of HedgeWorld. Mark hosts the weekly web-TV program on BTFD.tv every sunday night at 9pm EST. Last night, we discussed the convergence of funds of hedge funds, liquid alternatives and the upcoming HedgeWorld Midwest conference to be held in Chicago on June 24-25.
Chris spent some time discussing some of the interesting topics that will be covered at the conference, and we all shared some thoughts on the hedge fund space, liquid alts and hockey (Game 7 of the Kings/Blackhawks series was on during the call, and Mark and Chris are Chicago based Hawks fans. Sorry guys. #GoKingsGo #StanleyCup) The speaker lineup for the conference looks strong, and I will be leading a panel on liquid alternatives vs. fund of hedge funds, while Mark will be heading a panel discussing management futures and hedge fund performance.
