Legends4Legends was founded in 2016 to create an industry charitable event providing the highest quality investment content and the opportunity for international investors and alternative investment fund managers to engage with each other. The event helps to raise funds for projects involved in improving the living standards of children globally. These projects are typically education, healthcare, clean water and housing. A4C focuses on projects which are sustainable, feature strong local community involvement, lead to self-sufficiency for those communities, are fully transparent, and are small-scale in order to ensure maximum added value.

Leda Braga, founder and CEO of Systematica, a previous speaker, commented, "I liked the event's strong focus on high-quality investment content‎ and that its goal was to raise money for charity.  The approach was refreshing and unfussy and the venue was excellent."

Other speakers this year include Jeff Gardner, Senior Portfolio Strategist, Bridgewater Associates; T. J. Durkin, Managing Director & Co-Head Structured Credit Platform, Angelo Gordon; Shannon McConaghy, Fund Manager, Horseman Capital Management; Rupert Kimber, Partner, Quaero Capital; Tyler Spalding, Co-Founder, Flexa; and Alexander M. Ineichen, Founder, Ineichen Research and Management AG.
