Hedge fund and private equity experts from four different sectors – PR, legal, compliance and accounting – will discuss trends they are seeing in New York with their alternative asset clients.
Hedge fund traders and private equity managers can come together on Tuesday, May 19 at a networking forum at L’Escale Restaurant in Greenwich.
New technologies are allowing finance entrepreneurs to launch their own hedge fund with lower fees and smaller over-head costs, while the JOBS Act is making it easier for funds to market directly to new investors anywhere in the world via the media. Mark Macias runs a PR and marketing firm in New York City – Macias PR – which works with hedge funds, private equity and asset management groups. His strategy has led to major media placements for his clients with the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, CNBC, FundFire, Hedge Fund Alert, Institutional Investor Magazine and others.
Macias says the media will increasingly play a larger role for all funds that want to find new investors.
“You have the Wall Street Journal on your desk for a reason – you need information about the market and global events that influence it.
Potential investors and business owners read it for the same reasons, giving you a coveted opportunity to introduce your fund or strategy to them via influential third-party news sources.
Financial PR is more than an emerging trend. It’s one of the most strategic ways to influence investors, reach new clients and introduce your fund to institutional investors.” – Mark Macias of Macias PR
Macias points to research from Cogent Research that showed 70 percent of investors reallocated their portfolios after reading a story on the news, while one-third of these investors admitted social media influenced their investment decision-making.
