Seides will speak on the topic of “Capital Allocators: How the world’s elite money managers lead and invest”, which is the title of his newest book, to be released next year.
Seides is the founder of Capital Allocators, which he created in 2016 to explore best practices in the asset management industry from the perspective of asset owners, asset managers, and interdisciplinary thought leaders.
Previously, Seides was a founder and served as president and co-chief investment officer of Protégé Partners, a leading multi-billion-dollar alternative investment firm that invested in and seeded hedge funds, where he spent 14 years.
Seides began his career in 1992 under the tutelage of David Swensen at the Yale University Investments Office. Along the way, he was featured in Top Hedge Fund Investors: Stories, Strategies, and Advice, authored So You Want to Start a Hedge Fund: Lessons for Managers and Allocators, and made a 10-year charitable bet with Warren Buffett pitting hedge funds against the S&P 500.
Besides Seides’ address, the Symposium agenda will feature other prominent speakers and panellists, focusing on topical issues affecting alternative asset managers and their investors, in a year of turbulent change for global economies.
