David Heden has never been afraid to take the road less travelled. He is both a dreamer and a manifestor, yet an expert in mitigating and managing risk. He first deviated from the marked path when he dropped out of school at the age of 17 to become a research analyst at K2 and Associates Investment Management Inc. After 13 dedicated years with K2, culminated with 6 years as managing partner, he led the firm's event-driven, distressed debt and energy strategies until his early retirement at age 30. One year later, he founded HGC Investment Management Inc., best known for managing over $1B in its HGC fund, an award-winning, flagship fund that has been recognized for its consistency and low volatility.
David is the proud father of a son and daughter. Inspired by their future and his experience as an industry visionary, he founded 5D Capital, a firm that believes that investing with intention creates impact. The foundation of David’s success lies in his vision for continual self-improvement and inquiry. Blending energy with professional work has inspired David to do things differently and bridge the worlds of capital and consciousness.
YIn addition to his lively professional life, David practices kundalini yoga and is passionate about all things conscious living and total well-being. He currently lives between Toronto and Nosara, and his mission is to contribute to raise the vibration of the collective.
