William Heard, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer of Heard Capital LLC, is scheduled to speak at the 8th annual Invest For Kids, a prominent annual investment conference that doubles as a fundraiser for Chicago’s underprivileged youth.
Heard, who runs an asset management firm of the same name, was invited to speak to Invest For Kids’ audience alongside some of the most recognizable names in the financial and equity industries.
Called “the Chicago investment event of the year,” Invest For Kids brings together established and emerging managers to offer their market views and best investment ideas to a conference of 1,500 investors.
This year’s conference features ten prominent investment managers, including Jonathan Gray of Blackstone, Michael Sacks of GCM Grosvenor, Sam Zell of Equity Group Investments, and Leah Joy Zell of Lizard Investors LLC.
100% of the ticket price benefits seven organizations working to make a difference in the lives of Chicago’s underprivileged kids and raises approximately $1.5 million annually for organizations focused on education, health and wellness, after school programing, and mentoring.
