At the time, the institutional investor community did not have adequate access to information about the options markets and strategies implemented by volatility focused managers. In 2010, a few hedge fund managers along with a few senior experts in the industry united in New York City for a conference marking the inaugural Global Volatility Summit in New York. In 2017, GVS expanded across international borders and founded the first annual Global Volatility Summit in Tokyo (“GVS Tokyo”).

Today, the mission of educating institutional investors about volatility and quantitative strategies within a global institutional investment portfolio remains, and the event has grown in attendees,
as well as the scope of managers and strategies. The GVS New York event now hosts 16 hedge fund managers and 400 attendees at Chelsea Piers for an annual one-day conference. Among the attendees are global senior investment professionals from public and private pension funds, insurance companies, endowment and foundations, consultants and family offices, representing over $35 trillion1 in assets under management. Participating hedge fund managers, industry experts and practitioners discuss a variety of topics to help investors manage their own portfolios, employ interesting hedges or thoughtful trade ideas and understand the current market environment all through the lens of volatility. Investors also have the opportunity to network amongst peers to foster strategy discussions. In addition, each year the keynote speakers are thoughtfully selected to show how volatility plays a role outside of the financial markets including through the arenas of politics, business, sports, and leadership.
