HFI European Summit 2017

Europe’s leading event for the global hedge fund industry

Hedge Fund Intelligence is announcing a change in the keynote speaker line-up for the forthcoming HFI European Summit in Paris, which will take place at the Westin-Vendôme hotel on 3-4 May.

Due to overriding professional engagements, George Osborne will no longer be able to attend the event. But we are delighted that Jonathan Lourie, the co-founder of Cheyne Capital, will be giving a keynote address on the afternoon of 3 May prior to the evening cocktail reception sponsored by Jersey Finance.

The winner this year of EuroHedge’s coveted Management Firm of the Year award for a remarkable third time, Cheyne has developed a reputation since its inception in 2000 as one of the most innovative and pioneering hedge fund firms.
Lourie joins fellow keynote speakers Luke Ellis, the CEO of Man Group, and Albourne Partners chairman and co-founder Simon Ruddick at this year’s Summit – heading a line-up of more than 50 top managers and investors that will be participating in panel discussions and other sessions.

The Summit is a key fixture in the annual hedge fund calendar – regularly attended by some 750 high-level managers, investors, counterparties, intermediaries, consultants and service providers from the hedge fund and wider investment worlds to discuss the opportunities, risks, changes and challenges for the alternative asset management industry as a whole and across a wide range of specific investment and business management topics.
