The 8th Annual Global Volatility Summit was held on March 15, 2017 at Chelsea Piers in New York City. Presenting to and networking with a well attended crowd was an exciting lineup of 15 hedge fund managers, plus industry experts, hedge fund consultants, and institutional investors addressing the use of volatility, hedging, CTA and quantitative strategies within institutional investment portfolios.
In contrast to the main content, the keynote speakers Arianna Huffington and Daniel Gilbert added a unique element to the day sharing their thoughts on a variety of topics including politics in America, the importance of sleep, as well as the science behind happiness. The theme of the event was the Museum of Natural Volatility. Thought provoking exhibits, beautifully displayed and creatively executed by the David Stark design team, included: Prop Deskasaurus, Endangered Trading Jackets, Financial Fossils, Trump Bird’s Nest, The Brexit Beetle and more. As an escape from the content driven presentations, guests were treated to personalized hand typed haikus throughout the day.
