History

Paul Britton, founder and CEO of Capstone Investment Advisors, conceptualized the idea of Global Volatility Summit in 2010. Based on feedback from investors exploring the growing space of volatility investing, it was evident they faced a lack of information about the options markets and different managers trading it. The Global Volatility Summit brings together a diversified group of global hedge fund managers in the volatility and tail hedging space to educate institutional hedge fund investors on volatility as an asset class. The goal is to provide useful and timely information to investors on the volatility market and opportunities to use volatility effectively in a global institutional investment portfolio.

While the Summit educates investors throughout the year with research notes and presentations from leading fund managers and banks, the marquis event for the Global Volatility Summit is a one-day conference bringing together industry experts along with top global institutional investors to share thoughts on the topic Managers and industry experts in the volatility space provide insight and topical information on the capital markets from a volatility perspective. Investors are also network amongst their peers and hear directly from pensions and consultants on how volatility can provide diversification to a portfolio. In addition, thoughtful keynote speakers are selected to show how volatility plays a role in global politics and the business world. With the event now in its seventh year, as the volatility space has grown, and both managers and investors become more sophisticated and knowledgeable on the space, so does the quality of the event and attendees improve.

Finally, the David Stark Design team has been involved since the launch of the inaugural GVS event in 2010. This team thoughtfully and creatively translates the volatility based event theme to artfully convey the message visually through the décor, signage, and artwork which are a staple of the event each year.
