The 19th annual IRA Sohn Investment Conference 2014 is just one week away, but you still have time to register to hear from some of the world’s top investors while raising money for the fight against pediatric cancer, adding to the more than $50 million that the Sohn Conference Foundation has raised since it was founded in 1995. This year’s event will take place on May 5 at the Lincoln Center in New York, with the Hong Kong, London, and San Francisco conferences taking place later in the year.

Next Wave IRA Sohn Investment Conference 2014 showcases rising stars

This year’s IRA Sohn Investment Conference 2014 has a new addition – before the main event the Next Wave Sohn: Emerging Hedge Fund Managers conference will give some of the rising stars of the investment world a chance to share their insights. Running from 9:30 – 11:15, the panel will include Indus Capital partner and co-portfolio manager Ethan Devine, CIO and CEO of Tourbillon Capital Partners Jason Karp, founding and managing partner of Long Pond Capital John Khoury, Kora Management CIO Nitin Saigal, and Marianas Fund founder Will Snellings. The event is included for Sohn Investment Conference ticket holders, but can also be attended separately.

The main event runs from noon to 5:30, and the list of speakers reads like who’s who of the investment world. Pershing Square Capital Management CEO Bill Ackman, Greenlight Capital president David Einhorn, Glenview Capital CEO Larry Robbins, Shumway Capital CEO Chris Shumway, Principal Fortress Investment Group Michael Novogratz, CEO Coatue Management Philippe Laffont, CEO and CIO of DoubleLine Jeffrey Gundlach, and Grant’s Interest Rate Observer founder James Grant among many others will take the stage to share their view on what’s happening in the world of finance and how you can become a better investor (check the full list of conference speakers here).

Enter the Sohn Conference Foundation contest

And if you hurry, you still have time to enter the Sohn Conference Foundation contest for the best investment idea. The finalists and semifinalists will get free tickets to the IRA Sohn Investment Conference 2014, and the winner gets to give a 10 minute presentation to a crowd of nearly 3000 investment professionals explaining the idea (and paving the way for plenty of networking afterwards).
