100 WHF Bermuda Launch Event – June 22, 2015
On Monday, June 22, the 100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) launched their Bermuda location, making Bermuda another forum for women in this community to meet and learn from each other through educational events. 100WHF is a well-respected global organisation linking more than 13,000 professional women in the alternative investment, asset management, investor and broader financial services industry.
The event program featured James Rosebush, former Deputy Assistant to Ronald Reagan and Chief of Staff to the First Lady and Natalie Deak Jaros, Ernst & Yourng’s Hedge Fund Markets Leader in the Americas. Rosebush shared stories from his White House experiences, with an emphasis on how to effectively communicate. Deak Jaros provided opening remarks, sharing insights around accelerating the role of women as an economic imperative. Alison Morrison, Managing Director of Oyster Consulting (Bermuda) and member of the Bermuda Education Committee, presented a brief overview of the international organization, as well as information about membership, involvement and future events.
Immediately following the event, members also attended the Global Fund Forum’s Welcome Reception, happening concurrently on the island, which featured two keynote speakers.
