The Summit Will Focus on High-Quality Alternative Investment Managers
Jackson Hole, WY – February 14, 2019 – Convergence Investments is pleased to announce the Jackson Hole Investor Summit, to be held March 13-15th, 2019 in Jackson, WY.
Taking advantage of Jackson Hole’s prime location and billing as one of the most affluent counties in the country, The Jackson Hole Investor Summit is a multi-asset class symposium that brings together high-quality alternative investment managers and an invite-only group of family office professionals and high net worth individuals at the base of America’s finest ski and snowboard resort.
“We are thrilled to be hosting the first ever investor summit in Jackson Hole’s history,” said Colby Cox, Founder and CEO of Convergence and convener of the summit. “Since 1981, central bankers and finance ministers from around the world have converged on Jackson Hole to debate important global economic issues. Frankly, we’re tired of the bureaucrats having all the fun, so we’re bringing top managers and family office professionals together to spur thoughtful investment discussions amid the region’s natural beauty.”
Spearheading manager selection for the Summit is industry veteran Matthew Lusins, a former Partner and Managing Director at Meritage Group, a family office vehicle for employees of Renaissance Technologies. Lusins, now Head of Business Development at Convergence, crafted an agenda that will interest high net-worth individuals and family offices, specifically inviting managers that are uncorrelated, niche, seeking above-average returns or provide tax solutions.
Representatives from Corigin Ventures, an early stage venture capital firm, equity hedge fund manager Shellback Capital and Merida Capital, a private equity fund targeting the cannabis industry will be among the managers who will speak at the conference, and Medora Ventures will lead a panel on Opportunity Zones. The conference keynote is a Navy SEAL veteran of 14 years that participated in hundreds of missions around the globe and has earned a Silver Star, a Purple Heart, five Bronze Stars with Valor and many other honors.
Attendees will also have a variety of options to take advantage of Jackson’s unparalleled outdoor activities, including a ski day with former U.S. Ski Team member and Olympic gold medalist Tommy Moe.
The summit will be hosted by The Four Seasons Resort in Jackson.
