Overview

Alternative investment strategies used by hedge funds often perform well on an absolute return basis in any market. Institutional investors who are disappointed with the performance of traditional asset classes - namely equities - are now looking to hedge funds to provide diversification, and extra returns on a risk-adjusted basis, to their overall portfolios. As a result, traditional asset managers are looking to develop their own hedge funds as alternative offerings to their clients. An executive-level educational program is necessary. This coursebook complements How to Create and Manage a Hedge Fund and provides a self-study course that reviews the technical and quantitative knowledge necessary to manage a hedge fund properly.

If you want a great starter book in hedge funds, this is the book for you. If you are looking for in-depth information than this book is not for you. It provides a well rounded introduction to definitions, strategies, risk management, accounting, legal and performance calculations.
