What is the WHFN New York?
The Wharton Hedge Fund Network (WHFN) was founded in 2005 as an affinity group of the Wharton Club of New York. The group aims to bring together Wharton alumni active in the greater hedge fund community, which includes professionals working at hedge funds, hedge fund allocators, lawyers, accountants, prime brokers and other service providers active in the hedge fund space.
Events are by invitation only and limited to Wharton undergraduates and/or Wharton MBA's who are employed in the hedge fund space.
