“One of the HFA’s most important missions has been – and remains – to speak up for the interests of smaller and emerging managers,” said Shah. “However, as a part of our expanding industry advocacy efforts, we also work on behalf of larger hedge fund managers, many of whom are based in Connecticut.”
“Sal’s insights into the institutional investment and hedge fund industries are widely sought after,” said Mitch Ackles, president of the Hedge Fund Association. “We are thrilled that he is bringing his experience to the HFA.”
