About the IHFA

The Israel Hedge Funds Association
The Israel Hedge Funds Association (IHFA) was established informally in the spring of 2013 by a group of Israeli and international investment managers and service providers in the hedge fund industry.
The vision was to support the hedge fund industry in Israel as an integral part of the industry’s global community.
Through its expanding activities, the IHFA acts as a bridge connecting the local Israeli industry and its international peers, bringing together professional managers, investors and service providers. In 2015, the IHFA registered as a not-for-profit in Israel. Its objectives are: to represent and promote the common interests of the hedge fund industry in front of governmental authorities in Israel; to provide recommendations for best practices to the industry in Israel; to provide access to professional information; and to broaden and deepen market and public knowledge about the hedge fund industry. For more information about the IHFA or to become a member, please e-mail
