SunStar Strategic is pleased to announce that Hennessy Advisors, Inc. is a Gold Sponsor for SunStar Strategic's 2019 Mutual Fund Conference, “Thriving in an Ever-Changing Industry.” The conference is ideal for small to medium-sized fund firms who want to grow.
Neil Hennessy, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Hennessy Advisors, Inc., will participate in a panel about mergers and acquisition trends in the mutual fund industry, sharing his insights from completing 10 acquisitions representing 30 mutual funds. He will be joined by Bruce Cameron, Partner and Co-founder of Berkshire Global Advisors, and Brad Hearsh, Senior Advisor with UBS Investment Bank.
The event features two keynote speakers. Christopher Davis, Head of U.S. Research for Strategic Insight, will present “Distribution Essentials for Boutique Funds,” addressing how boutique firms can market themselves. Davis’ comments will be data-based and support his hypothesis that multiple channels of distribution should be pursued.

They do a professional job with presentations that are very well suited to smaller and mid-sized fund firms. It’s time well spent.”
