“In Chicago, the fifth annual Invest For Kids Investment Conference, which benefits a number of local philanthropies, took place on Tuesday at the Harris Theater. Featured speakers including Trian Fund Management’s Nelson Peltz, Avenue Capital Group’s Marc Lasry, and Kingdon Capital Management’s Mark Kingdon helped swell the group’s coffers by a million dollars from 1,000 attendees. It’s money well spent in more than one way: Last year’s selections have risen 61% since, easily topping the 30% increase in the S&P 500.”
