Both the investors and managers were pre-screened and pre-qualified to constructively fit into the investor event. Investors were interviewed for their active interest in L/S Equity and Quant focused managers, and asked to supply information on their key investment criteria and preferences. Managers were asked to apply by sending their fund profile and their investor preferences. Subsequently, investors and managers gave their preferences to whom to meet with, taking into account the information available on participants. All participants were given tailor-made private meeting schedules prior to the event.



The investor event consisted of a luncheon with presentations by managers, a networking break, five private meetings in 35 minute sessions, and a cocktail reception.
