First the chukkas, then the rockers

The postponement because of rain of the annual charity hedge fund polo tournament in Darien, Connecticut, meant a few key players were unable to make it, but it didn’t stop play altogether.

The sun came out a day late and two teams were quickly rustled up by sponsors Bulltick Asset Management and Octagon Asset Management. The teams tied and the outcome was determined by the toss of a coin. Bulltick won the toss and took home the first-prize trophy. Among other hedge funds and sponsors attending the event, which raised $40,000, were Rockbay Capital, Artha Capital, Thesis Capital, Explorer Capital, and Pali Capital.

Topping off a day of horseplay, hedge fund band The Subscribers entertained the crowd with an hour’s set of rock ’n’ roll. Sadly, drummer Mead Welles, CEO of Octagon Asset Management, wasn’t able to play as he had a flight to catch after his polo performance, but he insists he won’t be missing the band’s stint at the upcoming hedge fund Rocktoberfest.

The annual event takes place on October 19 at BB Kings Blues Club and Grill in New York’s Times Square district. Hedge fund bands Stonehedge, The Cause, Bull Path Jammers, Aged Inventory and JAM Partners will be joining The Subscribers for the event to raise money for Altso, a charity that supports disabled children in developing countries.
