The Henley Executive Hedge Fund Program is renowned for its networking, bringing participants together with alumni, teachers and industry professionals around the world.
The networking usually takes the form of Networking Cocktails, where the whole HEHFP community gathers to meet new people, reconnect with old friends and, frequently, to do business… Many valuable relationships have been forged at these events, and we encourage everyone to bring business cards!
The networking events are held regularly in global financial services centres, with participants being invited to all events regardless of their home location, and we often welcome traveling alumni in the cities they are visiting.
We are also often able to get our students invitations to other institutions’ events in many cities, with program participants receiving free or reduced rate admission. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the hedge funds industry and to extend your network beyond the program itself.
Since the development of the online program, the student and alumni body is extending beyond the major financial centres, and as the program community grows larger in other cities, we hope to extend the networking events to new places.
COVID-19 UPDATE: since most major cities have banned large gatherings, for the moment there are no events scheduled. However, participants can meet virtually in the regular Speaker Series events.
