Are Hedge Funds Evil or Misunderstood?
A Luncheon Featuring Timothy Spangler, Author of "One Step Ahead"
This event was originally scheduled for December 12th, 2013 but was postponed. The new date for this event is Thursday, January 30th. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you on January 30th!
For many Americans, the term 'hedge fund' conjures up visions of greedy Wall Street investors making back room deals, possibly on insider information. But the truth is, few really know what hedge funds do, or how they contribute to the U.S. economy. Contrary to public perception, hedge funds often drive financial markets and have become vital wealth creation vehicles for both private and public investors. In his new book, One Step Ahead
, Timothy Spangler provides a compelling account of how flexible and entrepreneurial investment firms can prosper in a volatile and rapidly changing financial world. He also examines the new regulatory environment and how it hinders economic growth, while doing little to prevent a new crisis.
