Hedge Fund Business Forum 2016


19 May, 2016
Institute of Directors, London

The Hedge Fund Business Forum provides senior business managers such as CEOs and COOs a dedicated meeting to debate the key operational and business issues affecting their businesses. The event attracts around 150 people including from many of the major management firms.

BNP Paribas is once again sponsor of Hedge Fund Business Forum.

This year’s Hedge Fund Business Forum provides an excellent opportunity to interact with peers and other industry experts at a time that the industry faces many challenges.

Key themes for this year will include:

•Convergence, cannibalisation and alignment – how best to run a multi-product shop today

•Coping with rapidly changing markets – a world of lesser liquidity and ‘mark-to quote’, cyber and other threats

•The challenge of raising capital, and the changing face of investor requirements

•Ongoing and upcoming legal and regulatory changes, and the prospect of Brexit

•M&A, succession policy and generational transfer – and much more…


Ian Lynch, Global head of hedge fund services at BNP Paribas Securities Services, will be participating in the panel, "Convergence, cannibalisation and alignment". Can hedge funds retain their distinct identity and remain a separate realm within asset management? Or are they inevitably converging with traditional long-only, private equity and other areas?

Páraic Cosgrave, Global head of sales and relationship management for alternative fund services business at BNP Paribas Securities Services, will be participating in the panel, "Marketing funds in Europe - Opportunities and challenges for Alternative Investment Funds and UCITS".

The event is organised by Neil Wilson and John Willis, who have worked with the hedge fund industry for more than 15 years each including founding and running some of the most successful events in the hedge fund calendar.
