Bill Ackman is about to face off against Europe’s biggest activist investor on the tennis court in the first-ever ‘Finance Cup’

 

While Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer prepare for a semifinals at the US Open in Flushing Meadows, Wall Street’s biggest hitters are gearing up for the first annual “Finance Cup” on Saturday.

The Finance Cup will match up Team Wall Street against Team Europe with some of the best players in the financial community in Europe making the trip just for the occasion.

The Finance Cup was co-organised by London-based portfolio manager David Anvig and New York-based investment banker Jeff Appel.

Appel, affectionately known as the “Mayor of New York Tennis, ” has been credited with helping young tennis players land jobs on Wall Street. He’s also credited for bringing hedge fund manager Bill Ackman, the founder of Pershing Square Capital, back into tennis world.
