​​Hedge Funds: Dead or Alive?
IMG_0704.JPG
 
CFA Society Washington DC held a discussion on the topic “Hedge Funds: Dead or Alive?” among panelists Fuller O’Connor of hedge fund manager EJF Capital, Alifia Doriwala of alternative investments manager The Rock Creek Group, and Paula Kar of exchange-traded fund provider ProShares.

 
The panelists discussed why so few hedge funds have managed to outperform a simple blend of stocks and bonds, and why average hedge fund returns have declined so steadily since the early 1990s, and why average hedge fund fees have not declined accordingly. The discussion touched on the under-reported risks of hedge funds as well as other asset categories.​

  2018 Charter Recognition Ceremony 22467587_1609037439176276_4387054247726792888_o.jpg

Congratulations again to everyone who received a Charterholder Designation last Thursday! It was a very special evening for our new charterholders, as they have put in several years of hard work just to receive the most respected and recognized investment management designation in the world. 

In attendance were friends and family of the members, who have supported them in their journey to accomplishing their CFA. To commemorate this event the Managing Director of CFA America, John Bowman, offered some words of encouragement, while expressing the value of being a charter holder and imparting professional wisdom in regards to the future of finance.

Following John's speech, CFAW chair Roman Iwachiw presented new charterholders with ceremonial certificates. We are so proud of our members, and look forward to seeing how the CFA designation elevates their career to new heights within the investment industry.
