Upcoming Investment Conferences
The conference business is hot as media looks for new ways to make money in the age of Watermelon contests getting 10M views its hard for actual news to keep up – one way is by hosting investment conferences where rich people can spend thousands of dollars for a chance to listen to a 30 minute speech from a hedge fund manager who is being crushed by SPY and with negative alpha (JK … sorta). Additionally, there are many great causes like the Sohn Foundation which hosts investment conferences all over the world and gives 100% of the revenue to charity. Thankfully we are media and most folks are kind enough to give us a free pass so us poor journalists can cover what these famous hedge fund managers are saying without shelling out $3,000 (borrowed from a payday loan shark).
