The second annual Legends4Legends conference was organised by industry charity Alternatives 4 Children (A4C), of which Adamas Asset Management COO, Marc de Kloe, is a co-founder, in cooperation with local hedge fund allocator, Theta Capital, where partner and portfolio manager, Ruud Smets, was heavily involved. A4C’s project selection criteria include sustainability (in both economic and ecological senses); local anchoring; independence, to foster longer term self-sufficiency; and transparency. The 2017 event raised EUR 100,000. A4C’s projects have included funding schools and educational projects in Ghana, Tanzania, Kenya, India and the Netherlands. Theta Capital’s Euronext-listed multi-manager offering, the Legends Fund, and their bespoke managed account capabilities, were profiled in Issue 118 of The Hedge Fund Journal.
