The 9th Annual Global Volatility Summit was held on March 14, 2018 at Chelsea Piers in New York City. With over 400 attendees, 14 hedge fund managers were joined by senior professionals from hedge fund consultants, the institutional investor community, and leaders in the industry to discuss volatility, tail hedging, macro and quant strategies within the investment context.
Three keynote speakers, Lance Armstrong, David Gallo, and Ryan Holiday temporarily drove the conversation away from the central content to speak to volatility across other contexts including athletic competition and underwater astonishments. The event hosted the first-ever GVS Think Tank Panel, which featured three industry experts across East Asia policy studies, macro quantitative and derivatives strategies, and US politics. Among these panelists included Ryan Hass, Marko Kolanovic, and Demetri Sevastopulo. The David Stark design team transformed Pier 60 into a Coney Island carnival featuring exhibits such as the VIX rollercoaster, the Wheel of Tax Misfortune, the Bitcoin Burst, the Policy Skee Ball, and a Stock Market Fortune Teller. Guests were able to break away from content-filled presentations with interactive entertainment from a magician.
