Political research and analysis suggests that the period between now and the U.S. presidential election is one of unprecedented political, regulatory, and reputational hazard for at least certain segments of the hedge fund industry. Mr. Berger will discuss public affairs strategies and "counter-messages" that hedge funds can employ to shield themselves from this risk, increase investor confidence and influence regulators against over-burdening the industry.
