SUNTEC CITY, Singapore, Jan. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Shorex, one of the world's leading organizers of wealth-management conferences for high-net-worth individuals and their professional advisors, is pleased to announce that Jack Simony, a pioneer in the rapidly emerging field of Litigation Finance, will be speaking at The Shorex Wealth Management Forum Singapore 2011, to be held at the Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre on 12 – 13 April 2011. Mr. Simony has an outstanding 10-year track record in the field of Litigation Finance and is widely regarded as one of the industry's leaders.
"We are delighted that Jack Simony has accepted our invitation to speak at The Shorex Wealth Management Forum Singapore 2011," said Philippe Gelin, founder and director of Shorex. "At Shorex, we take great pride in our track record of introducing investors to the newest and most innovative investment opportunities, often informing our audiences about lucrative new markets years before they enter the mainstream consciousness. Our forum attendees are constantly seeking new non-correlated asset classes, but such opportunities have become increasingly rare in today's markets. For this reason we are delighted that Mr. Simony has agreed to speak on the topic of Litigation Finance."
"Litigation Finance is a unique and dynamic investment category that directly combines the investment management and legal professions," said Simony. "I have been involved with this field for most of my career, and have developed a deep appreciation for its potential to generate superior absolute returns that are truly non-correlated with traditional asset classes. I'm honored to be participating in this year's Shorex forum and look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with this audience."
The Shorex Wealth Management Forum Singapore is designed to address the growing needs of the Asian market for investment advisory services. The event focuses on professional advisors to high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors, but also welcomes ultra-net-worth qualified investors invited by Shorex private banking partners. Last year, the forum attracted 30 exhibitors and sponsors and nearly 1,300 participants from across Asia. The 2011 event is expected to attract over 1,400 delegates.
