Jean-Francois Tardif To Deliver Keynote Presentation At AGORACOM Online Gold and Commodities Conference

Posted by AGORACOM at 8:27 AM on Tuesday, December 1st, 2009


I am very proud to announce that (retired) superstar Hedge Fund Manager, Jean-Francois Tardif, will be taking a break from retirement for 30 minutes to share his views on the global economy, markets and commodities at The AGORACOM Online Gold & Commodities Conference.  “JF”, as he is often referred to by the street, is a sought after market commentator due to his incomparable track record of success.   Specifically, prior to his retirement in June 2009, Jean-François Tardif was the Lead Portfolio Manager for the Sprott Opportunities Hedge Fund LP, Sprott Opportunities RSP Fund and Sprott Opportunities Offshore Fund with combined assets over US$450 million.

In 2007, Mr. Tardif was recognized at the HFM Week’s US Performance Awards Ceremony as the Best Canada-Based Hedge Fund Manager and was nominated for the Best Long/Short Hedge Fund Manager award. In addition, Barron’s ranked his Sprott Opportunities Fund as the #18 Hedge Fund on the planet.

In 2007 and 2008, he won Globe Investor’s My One and Only stock-picking contest in both 2007 and 2008.  For the five year ended April 30, 2009, his Sprott Opportunities Hedge Fund posted a blistering average annual return of 21 per cent.

Mr. Tardif has been frequently interviewed and quoted on the AGORACOM Blog where many investors benefited from heeding his advice concerning the effects of global deleveraging.  We are very pleased to have him back for our conference and kicking off our Friday session.

Investors interested in watching his presentation should consult our conference schedule, which will provide a direct link on Friday morning at 8:30 AM EST.  The presentation will be hosted right here on this blog, so feel free to subscribe via RSS, Twitter or …. e-mail …. to receive notification
