Thank you to all who participated in the Fifth Annual Global Volatility Summit. The event was a great success with over 370 attendees including institutional investors from global pensions, endowments, foundations, and insurance companies, 10 hedge fund managers in the volatility and tail hedging space, and some of the most prominent global banks and exchanges.
The Global Volatility Summit is a stimulating one day symposium that brings together the world’s most experienced managers of volatility across hedge funds, pensions and endowment funds, and banks to debate, discuss and offer fresh intelligence on volatility trading and volatility investing. Since the group first convened five years ago, we have aimed to educate investors during this one day event and throughout the year. Through manager and investor panels, audience participation, and dynamic networking sessions, the Summit will provide thought provoking commentary on the subject of volatility in the context of institutional investment portfolios.
