The journalists who write the stories are often as interesting as the industry they cover. They can also help shape public perceptions about firms, managers and investors. This episode marks the first in a series of periodic interviews with leading journalists who cover the alternative fund business.

In this episode, we hear from three top professionals at HFM: Jennifer Banzaca, the Compliance Editor, Michael Paterakis, the Investment Editor, and Thomas Duffell, the U.S. News Editor. Each has a different segment in which they describe how they got started in the business, reveal some of their favorite stories, offer advice about dealing with the media, and add a few other interesting details about their careers. Jennifer starts the episode, with Mike following at the 8:18 mark and Tom taking the anchor leg at the 17:22 mark.

Jennifer, Mike and Tom also will be panel moderators at the upcoming HFM Billion Dollar Club Virtual Summit 2020. The BDC Summit will deliver valuable content, strategic insights and networking opportunities for the hedge fund community.
