Peregrine Communications, HedgeBrunch’s global strategic communications partner, attended HedgeBrunch’s inaugural US event in New York City on December 2, 2014. The event was hosted at the Presidential Suite of The Surrey Hotel, on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
Founded and backed by hedge fund professionals, HedgeBrunch originated in London and has a global reach and membership base of 10,000 hedge fund professionals. Events range from the original and classic weekend brunch party, to invitational private dining, breakfast briefings and cocktail evenings as well as exclusive experiential occasions. The New York City event included investors, major global funds and start-up managers, as well as friends of the industry, who gathered together for an evening of knowledge and idea sharing in a social setting.
A welcome address was given by Angus Morison, CEO of HedgeBrunch in which Max Hilton, Director Peregrine USA, was named US chapter head.
Max Hilton commented on why HedgeBrunch events have proved to be so popular with the hedge fund community: “Personal connections and relationships, far more than anything else, help us with professional and personal development. Trust and transparency are born from these connections and the best way to build this is not across the board-room table, but rather, in a social and relaxed setting. HedgeBrunch provides a great forum for conducting business – whether you are a fund manager, investor or a friend of the industry – by bridging the gap between business and pleasure.”
The Peregrine Communications team was also represented by Michaela Morales and Mirabel Mintz from Peregrine’s offices in New York City.
Peregrine Communications will support HedgeBrunch to create and host events in New York, Miami, and other major financial hubs in 2015. To keep abreast of upcoming events, visit www.hedgebrunch.com.
