The Managed Funds Association is a Washington, DC-based industry group that represents prominent hedge funds like D. E. Shaw, Renaissance Technologies, Tiger Management and Third Point. The association is considered one of the most powerful trade groups in Washington, spending over $4 million a year on lobbying.[1]

The association describes itself as "an advocacy, education, and communications organization established to enable hedge fund and managed futures firms in the alternative investment industry to participate in public policy discourse, share best practices and learn from peers, and communicate the industry’s contributions to the global economy."[2]
