Anne Dinning is standing, in the second row, center, between the pretty woman with red hair, v-neckline to the left and a hideous huge woman wearing brown, she towers over the entire picture, and looks like a man in a dress, on the right.

Last update: 2010-12-01

This nonprofit has assets of $25,299,341, income of $10,801,106.Source: IRS Master File Data ( and Non-profit number 266208988
Note: I wonder why assets are now greater than income for a 503(c) type organization? Usually the assets are smaller, and the income represents the amount of funding actually disbursed for charitable/ philanthropic purposes. See tax year 2008 above for reference, and for comparison with similar organizations. Possibly has the numbers reversed, in which case there was $25.3 mil of income?I am uncertain.

UPDATE Tax year 2011

I am wondering if this might be useful for valuing D.E. Shaw fund holdings. See below for an excerpt from the filing for Anne and Michael’s charitable foundation, for tax year 2011. The private foundation of Anne Dinning and Michael Wolf now files under the following name and address: CORABELLE LUMPS FOUNDATION C/O JESSE GEORGE, THE AYCO COMPANY L.P. Address: 321 BROADWAY, SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY 12866Phone: 518-886-4190and has some of its $33,175,056 of assets invested in holdings of two D.E. Shaw funds. 
This means that the private charitable foundation of Anne Dinning, chief investment officer of D. E. Shaw Asset Management, is a D.E. Shaw customer too. I guess that’s okay. 
The Form 990 tax filing uses a different name, address and state than how the fund is registered, which is a little strange, but maybe it is standard. Who is Corabelle Lumps? I think that is made up! But the tax ID number on the Form 990 matches the Foundation number tax ID number, and both have the Anne and Michael’s name, and Anne signed the tax form.

Delivering Alpha 2

Delivering Theta

Guess who on Hedge Fund of Delivering Alpha 2012‘s profile page as an advisory board member, replete with a big photograph, made an appearance on my global media tracking alerts today? 
Looks like someone in public relations or similar convinced her to comb her hair and wear some cosmetics for once. 
Here’s the grandiloquent, blessedly brief 30 second video of the now concluded Delivering Alpha 2012 event. The 2013 event was much lower key, and held in early August, prior to the ruling class’s annual vacation month.

President’s Working Group on Markets , Asset Managers Committee

Presidents Bush and Obama asked the hedge fund industry to draft best practices of responsible behavior. I think it is a form of SELF-REGULATION. This is the committee’s finalized report, Best Practices for the Hedge Fund Industry. No input nor oversight by the Department of Justice, U.S. SEC or Federal Reserve was deemed necessary. If the document isn’t visible, try to view the Scribd source directly.
