2020 Australian Alternative Investment Award Winners and Finalists

The 2020 Hedge Funds Rock & The Australian Alternative Investment Awards were held by live broadcast last night. A large, diverse viewing audience from over Australia and the Asia Pacific region logged on to view a free live performance broadcasted from a mobile studio in the Hyatt Regency hotel at Darling Harbour, Sydney.

Kim Ivey, HFR co-founder and Chairman of the Alternative Future Foundation: “Our thanks to all the sponsors, production crew, judges, event staff, partners, fund managers and viewers for being part of last night’s HFR2020 and The Australian Alterative Investment Awards. In addition to seeing who the best alternative investment managers are in Australia, viewers were entertained by 2 live sets from Diesel and the great work of our guest MC, Tom Williams. Viewers also had the opportunity to also hear directly from the charities that the Foundation supports and to donate directly to all of these causes. Our congratulations to all the winners and finalists in all the various award categories.”
