The Company

Pageant’s operational events portfolio is built around Summits and webinars aimed at helping asset managers run their businesses better. HFM is the leading brand, aimed at hedge fund professionals. HFM’s flagship operational leaders’ summit takes place in Europe, Asia and the US sits at the core, with other summits aimed at different job functions, strategies and size of managers making up the rest of the content-led event portfolio. HFM also runs several successful award ceremonies rewarding outstanding hedge fund performance and service providers supporting hedge fund businesses. Pageant also produces events for senior executives in the insurance industry.

As the global pandemic struck in March this year, Pageant quickly pivoted to virtual events, launching webinar series in early April with the first interactive event, HFM Leadership Forum taking place mid-May. Since then we’ve delivered over 30 virtual Summits and Awards alongside an extensive webinar programme.
