September 21, 2020 – Advanced Markets has announced that it has organised an FX Hedge Fund Expo, the largest online FX hedge fund event of its kind, allowing a full, virtual connection to financial industry leaders and experts on October 28th and 29th, 2020. This unique event will be attended by global investors, asset managers, hedge funds, family offices, and high net worth individuals.

Investors around the world have been finding it difficult to diversify their portfolios in the midst of the recent global uncertainty surrounding the impact of the COVID19 pandemic as it altered the course of major world economies. The pandemic has exacerbated declines in growth in already problematic emerging market economies. During these challenging times, investors, asset managers, hedge funds, family offices, and high net worth individuals are turning to the currency markets. FX is the world’s largest asset class by turnover ($6.6 trillion a day according to a recent BIS study) and is ripe for investment opportunities. Advanced Markets' EXPO is bringing the investor and asset management communities together, ONLINE on October 28th and 29th, to discuss the logistics of fund set up, technology solutions for hedge funds and the optimisation of currency strategies during these uncertain times.

As part of the event, a special “FX Fund Investor Pitch Challenge” will be held in two sessions: The challenge will include about a dozen fund strategies that will be pitched to a panel of professional judges from the industry including portfolio managers at world-renowned hedge funds and the managers of family offices. Aspiring FX hedge fund managers can join this challenge for free, to practice and deliver their fund’s strategy pitch, receive valuable feedback from experts, and put their business on the path to success.

The FX Hedge Fund Expo 2020 will serve as a unique forum for everyone involved in currency hedge funds to connect, expand their knowledge, grow their business network and unleash the power of professional networking online."
