May 23, 2023 – An Alternative Perspective

Senior journalists covering the alternative investment industry, investor relations professionals and money managers weigh in on the changing nature of media coverage of hedge funds, private equity and venture capital and the different perspectives on both sides in a joint-event between the New York Alternative Investment Roundtable and the New York Financial Writers’ Association. Maneet Ahuja, a senior editor at Forbes and the founder of ICONOCLAST; Antoine Gara, a US Private and Institutional Capital Correspondent for the Financial Times; and Sarah Tomolonious, VP of Investor Relations at M13 will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of how information is shared on both sides of the equation and the challenges surrounding sharing information in a historically opaque industry. The discussion will be facilitated by Amanda Cantrell, US investing team leader for Bloomberg. Additional panelists forthcoming.

Topics covered will include:

·         Balancing accredited investor requirements and transparency.

·         Why silence is not necessarily the best approach money managers can take.

·         The money manager perspective to information sharing -the do’s and don’ts.

·         Why effective communication is good for the bottom line.

·         Strategies for developing better communications with managers and journalists.
