The 2nd Funds Society Golf Tournament was held on Friday March 13th at the Miami Beach Golf Course, the tournament was attended by over 50 participants from the Asset and Wealth Management Industry in South Florida. On this occasion, we enjoyed the cooperation of Henderson Global Investors, MFS, M&G and Carmignac.
Although it seemed that the weather would be on our side this year, players had to contend with several of those storms so typical of Miami, bravely continuing with the game in spite of being soaked to the bone. Of course, no one gave up and all attendees continued the tournament, claiming that they were enjoying "a great day of golf."
The session of golf was preceded by a panel in which each manager had the opportunity of sharing their strategy and prospects for 2015. Nicolo Carpaneda, fixed income specialist at M&G, reviewed the main triggers of the global debt market. Meanwhile, Malte Heininger, who manages Carmignac Euro-Entrepreneurs, a fund oriented towards small European companies, detailed the opportunities in European equities. Nicholas J. Paul, Director of Investment Products at MFS spoke about the attractiveness of emerging equities in the current macro environment. Asian markets were covered by Andrew Gillan, portfolio manager for the Asian Equity team (ex -Japan) at Henderson Global Investors.
After lunch, the championship’s shotgun start came at 13:30. As was the case last year, the game type was individual Stableford in two categories. The first category was for players with handicap 0 to 18.4 and the second for those with an 18.5 to 36 handicap.
