AuthorsLive: CNBC's Maneet Ahuja to discuss The Alpha Masters
Greenwich Library and the YWCA Greenwich will present CNBC's Hedge Fund Specialist Maneet Ahuja on Thursday, June 7, at 7 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. She will discuss her book The Alpha Masters, which lifts the curtain on the notoriously private $2.1 trillion (according to Hedge Fund Research) hedge fund industry and unlocks the most valuable stories, secrets and lessons directly from the managers who have played the game best.
Written during one of the most volatile years for the U.S. markets, The Alpha Masters presents in-depth interviews with the biggest and most successful names in the history of the hedge fund business, including Ray Dalio, John Paulson, David Tepper, Bill Ackman, Marc Lasry and Sonia Gardner, Dan Loeb, Jim Chanos, Boaz Weinstein, Pierre LaGrange and Tim Wong, many of whom have never provided access to their businesses and their lives in this way.
Maneet Ahuja is CNBC's Hedge Fund Specialist and a producer on "Squawk Box". She was awarded CNBC's prestigious Enterprise Award in 2009 for her groundbreaking coverage of the industry. Noteworthy work includes hedge-fund titan David Tepper's first-ever TV appearance, sparking a two-week "Tepper Rally" in the markets, David Einhorn's warning call on Lehman Brothers as well as his bid to purchase the Mets, and John Paulson's letter to investors in response to the SEC investigation into the Goldman Abacus deal. She has covered the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland and produces quarterly shows at the Department of Labor with Former Federal Reserve Board President Alan Greenspan as well as Competitiveness Summits at Harvard Business School.
Prior to joining CNBC in 2008, she was a part of The Wall Street Journal's Money and Investing team. She began her career on Wall Street in 2002 at age 17 in Citigroup's Corporate and Investment Banking division as a credit risk analyst. Before that, she worked part-time at the Greenwich Library. She is one of Forbes' "30 Under 30" (Jan 2012), was featured in Elle magazine's annual Genius issue (April 2011) and in 2010, was nominated for Crain's NY Business' "40 Under 40 Rising Stars". This is her first book.
