Our fourth annual summer party was an electric evening! Guests from across the London hedge fund community, as well as those flying in from both Switzerland and New York, joined us at the spectacular Devonshire Club. This new private members club, at the heart of the City of London, only opened recently and it’s already making serious waves. It’s the brainchild of celebrated hospitality entrepreneur Brian Clivas, and is truly the culmination of a life spent creating amazing spaces, menus and experiences.
Guests were warmly welcomed by the Devonshire Club team and HedgeBrunch CEO Gus Morison with a sparkling flute of Veuve Cliquot and shown to the Club’s first floor Library and Causerie rooms. At every HedgeBrunch event, we endeavour to ensure that we have a productive mix of guests and always aim for an equal split between investors, funds and service providers. This party was no different and as guests arrived, both regulars and new, we were off to a great start. HedgeBrunch events fill up quickly, especially at this time of year when that summer feeling kicks in! August is upon us and the beach beckons so this was a perfect occasion to celebrate before a break.
The HedgeBrunch Summer Party was kindly supported by industry groups Afex Currency, Krzana, Custom House Global Fund Services, and Allay Partners – teams from each were in strong representation. Richard Hale of Custom House GFS commented “We’re delighted to be supporting tonight. HedgeBrunch is a great event and it’s wonderful to meet people in a less pressured environment. Custom House is very much a relationship focused business so the ethos here is perfect for us and our clients”.
On the more personal side Holisitic Motions personal training and the brand new lifestyle app VieLoco also supported the event. Holisitic Motions is a London-based private personal training group and from experience we can say that they deliver, focussing on brain power and deep research over the far more traditional PT offering. Vieloco is great fun, connecting you with others based on shared passions – very much a HedgeBrunch way of life! Check them out here.
As the evening rolled on it soon became clear that the Devonshire Club will become a regular on Top Ten members club lists worldwide. Service was impeccable, with superb eats and an extensive selection of premium spirits and wines from across the globe, we simply could not have asked for more. The excellent whiskey selection in the library also helped and with a 3am closing time there was simply no need to leave!
Not only does the club have a wide range of working, dining (the food is incredible) and drinking spaces but over 60 hotel rooms as well as exquisite spa and gym facilities, making it a complete offering. The City can often be a harsh place to be but the club is a veritable haven right at it’s centre, especially for those who are more inclined to W1 or visiting on business.
