MAHFA was established in 2002 by a small group of colleagues who recognized the emerging role of hedge funds in asset allocation and a need for a forum for education and conversation in the asset class.

For more than ten years MAHFA has addressed many of the major topics challenging the hedge fund profession, from educating potential investors to the “Retailization of Hedge Funds”, to how to make money in the Credit Crisis. As MAHFA has grown, the founding members have been joined by respected hedge fund professionals in leveraging the intellectual capital and resources that speak to the interests of MAHFA’s members. MAHFA stands out as the leader in bringing world class thought leaders to the mid-Atlantic Hedge Fund community.
