Overview

"This book should be required reading for anyone who invests in hedge funds." - L. Michael Cacace,Senior Editor, Fortune magazine

A Fascinating and Informative Introduction

"A worthwhile and thoughtful book on what is now considered to be a growth industry." - Michael Steinhardt, Steinhardt Management

"Getting Started in Hedge Funds is a fascinating book about one of Wall Street's most fascinating subjects." - Beth Piskora, New York Post Business Columnist

From the small investor to the professional trader, everyone is fascinated by the world of hedge funds. With its high-profile traders and tales of amazing profits--and frightening losses--hedge fund investing can seem vastly different from more traditional money management. In addition, the lack of accurate press coverage combined with the reticence of most hedge fund managers has made it next to impossible for outsiders to learn the real scoop on hedge funds...until now.

Getting Started in Hedge Funds provides investors with a complete and highly accessible introduction to hedge funds: what they are, how they started, how they work, and who manages them. Written by a financial writer and Wall Streeter who knows this world from the inside, this book:
* Explores the industry in its entirety;-from $2 million to $2 billion operations
* Tells the story of hedge funds from their inception in 1949 to today
* Profiles the strategies of both up-and-coming fund managers and heavyweights like Soros, Robertson, and Steinhardt
* Develops guidelines for choosing a hedge fund using returns, performance, and risk
* Shows smaller investors how to get in on the action

    Hedge funds, hedge hogs...huh? What's the difference?

    If you find yourself asking the same question you may just find this book useful. The cover designer realized that most investors did not know the difference between a bush/hedge and a hedge fund and the author, Mr.Strachman definitely obliges the beginner. He writes in a clear tone and use plenty of examples and includes interviews from various hedge fund operators. You can't go wrong with this kind of solid information. I am an 11 year veteran of the futures markets. I have been a broker and an investor. I am now the author of three books on the subject. I realize that it is important for investors to have non-correlative investments and this is a great introduction to that philosophy.

    Awesome and Helpful book.

    I have been in to hedge funds for months but didnt know how to really get into hedge funds until I read this book. I know Dan ( Author of book) and he is an unbeleivable source of information about buisness, finance and investing. This should be read by all looking to get into hedge funds, and just people who are interested in any sort of investing. I wish I could give it more stars.

    Getting Started in Hedge Funds

    This is a very elementary book-without enough information to get you started in the complicated and often dangerous world of Hedge Funds.

    Getting Started in Hedge Funds

    There is not much written here to get you started in this very complicated field. In fact, it bothers me to think someone would read this book and think they are ready to begin....and anyone who is versed in this field would find this book simplistic! Besides, it is not very well written and contains basic grammar errors!
