It is the 5th annual investor conference held in support of New York’s largest poverty-fighting organization. Each year Robin Hood casts a stellar lineup of thought leaders in the investment industry. The event is generally speaking a closed-door session so that panelists can share their frank market insights, off the record. This year the lineup ran the gamut from veterans like Jamie Dimon, Kenneth Langone and Michael Bloomberg to new voices from Bitcoin and Blockchain players.
