Jacinto Diaz Hache, W'13

Wharton Hedge Fund Network

I joined the Wharton Hedge Fund Network of New York while working at BlackRock under the Latin America Capital Origination Team back in 2014.

At the time, I simply wanted to meet Wharton alumni and gain additional exposure into the industry. Little did I know the sophisticated level of knowledge I would acquire, the close ties to industry professionals I would foster, and the support these Wharton alumni have provided me since my involvement in the association began.

The network’s membership continues to grow under the co-leadership of Charles Kornblith W’05 and Victor Bonilla C’05 W’11 as we continue to promote the speaker series that started back in 2005. Notable past speakers include John Paulson, President at Paulson & Co, Howard Marks, Co-Chairman of Oaktree Capital, and Bruce Richards, CEO at Marathon Asset Management, to name a few.

More recently, I concurrently joined the Wharton Venture Initiation Program in order to leverage Wharton’s entrepreneurial resources, which are countless, as I start my own fund advisory endeavor. This comes to show how a Wharton education is a lifelong education.

Jacinto is a Managing Partner, Hache Capital.
