The YJP Mansion



YJP is excited to host Ari Glass, Founder & Managing Member of Boothbay Fund Management in part of our Mentorship with Finance Leaders series. Ari founded Boothbay, the New York-based hedge fund manager, in 2012. The firm is dedicated to delivering consistent, uncorrelated absolute returns in all market environments. It combines proprietary portfolio construction and risk management technology to target traditional and non-traditional sources of alpha by dynamically allocating capital across strategies with idiosyncratic sources of return. Its investment strategies focus on all major asset classes globally. Within a broad range of investment strategies, the firm deploys its capital over $8.5BN of capital invested across approximately 115 managers to generate high risk-adjusted returns.

This will be a roundtable, with around 25 young professionals, featuring insights from Ari, and an opportunity for Q&A.
