GREENWICH, Conn., Nov. 6, 2015 — Lumentus, a full-service, strategic communications firm that helps hedge funds and other financial services companies build and protect their online profiles and improve their search results, will be a sponsor of this year’s Global Alpha Forum event. “We are excited to welcome Lumentus as a sponsor,” said Bruce McGuire, Founder of Global Alpha Forum. “In joining our more than 30 other sponsors, the New York-based Lumentus provides another example of an innovative leader that recognizes the growing potential of the alternative investments industry and its need to ensure due diligence doesn’t stop with a bad Google first page.”

“We are very pleased to be sponsoring Global Alpha Forum 2015,” said Christina Bertinelli, Lumentus senior partner and head of its Digital Reputation Management practice. “Alternative investments are an influential part of capital markets whose executives are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their communications needs. Our digital profiles are now often more important and cast a wider shadow than our own and the alternative investment community is now recognizing how important it is to manage their appearance online.”

For nearly a decade Global Alpha Forum has brought together leading members of the Alternative Investments community to hear industry experts provide greater insight into the issues affecting their businesses. “This year,” said McGuire, “Nouriel Roubini’s firm – Roubini Global Economics – is partnering with Global Alpha Forum to help create our most robust lineup of speakers, panels, and breakout session yet.” In addition, the Forum provides two days of one-on-one meetings between investors and a broad array of alpha-generating managers.

Lumentus helps clients manage their brands, protect their reputations and improve their perceptions across target and stakeholder audiences. The Lumentus approach to effective communications lies in achieving the optimal blend of public relations, advertising, digital and social media coupled with proprietary technology and tools to create positive results for clients.
