NEW YORK -- November 18, 2010

As hedge funds begin to recover, having rallied to a two-year high with a gain
of 1.5 percent in October, Bloomberg LINK will bring together the world’s top
managers and investors to discuss the state of the industry at Bloomberg Hedge
Funds 2010.

The Summit, being held on Thursday, December 2, 2010 at The Guggenheim Museum
in New York City, will focus on key topics for hedge fund managers and
investors as they enter 2011, including sovereign debt, real estate,
regulatory reform, foreign exchange, commodities and the emergence of new
markets. In particular, panel sessions will look at the impact of the Federal
Reserve’s second round of quantitative easing, the effect national deficits
will have on the bull bond market, how an increase in mergers and acquisitions
is driving investor activism, and how China’s financial growth will affect the
global economy.
