On 33 pages, the New York Roundtable delivers a detailed update on current issues and developments within the U.S. hedge fund industry. One of the foremost developments refers to fundamental changes in asset allocation of public and corporate pensions, who have started to allocate to alternatives straight out of their equity portfolio, rather than putting hedge funds into a "5% niche bucket".

The following eminent New York-based hedge fund managers, investors and advisers participated in the 2009 Roundtable:

1. Ed Robertiello, Managing Director, head of the fund of hedge funds Americas at Credit Suisse

2. Tim Schuler, CFA, Senior Vice President & Investment Strategist, Permal Group

3. Carrie McCabe, CEO and Founder of Lasair Capital

4. Chris Acito, Founder of Acito Advisory Group, former Managing Director and Global Chief Operation Officer for Investcorp's Hedge Fund Group

5. John M. Bader, Co-Chairman and Chief Investment Officer of Halcyon Asset Management

6. Bill Geisler, Portfolio Manager, Malbec Partners

7. Christopher Pucillo, Chief Investment Officer and Portfolio Manager, Solus Alternative Asset Management

8. Katherine S. Kim, Senior Analyst, Affirmed Capital

Further, the Round discusses various important aspects like:

• What macro signals hedge funds are using for their strategic positioning • Challenges for emerging managers: What happened to seeding? • New insights on risk and reward of different asset classes and hedge fund strategies • What are the "rescue mandates" that Credit Suisse and other notable firms are now getting? • What are the huge opportunities investors can pursue in the secondary markets for hedge funds? • What new hedge fund compensation models are already now being deployed, but why do hedge fund fees not seem to ever go down? • What keeps many hedge funds from participating in TALF and PIPP programs? • and much more!
