Next month, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club, Hong Kong, will host the Karen Leung Memorial Investor Conference. Held in memory of a young Oasis Management employee, the forum gathers leading investors to share views, insights and information with their peers.
Guest speakers at the event will include Oasis Management Chief Investment Officer Seth Fischer, as well as representatives from The Osiris Group, HFZ Capital Management, York Capital Management, and several others.
Karen Leung passed away last October at the age of 35, after battling metastatic cervical cancer. She was a loving wife and devoted daughter. She recognized the importance of educating women in Hong Kong about gynecological cancers as well as providing the region with research and treatment options from overseas. After her death, the Karen Leung Memorial Foundation was established in hopes of achieving her goals.
Despite her young age, Leung was also a successful equity and derivative trading professional. During her short time with Oasis Management, she befriended her colleagues and counterparts, and even served as mentor to many at the firm.
Next month’s forum of investors hopes to shine a light on the memory of Karen Leung; devoted wife, daughter, friend and employee.
