Overview

A self-study course that reviews the technical and quantitative knowledge necessary to properly manage a hedge fund
Today, traditional asset managers are looking to develop their own hedge funds as alternative offerings to their clients. Hedge Fund Course presents all the technical and quantitative knowledge necessary to run a leveraged investment company, and complements the less-technical information presented in the popular, How to Create and Manage a Hedge Fund (0-471-22488-X). Filled with in-depth insight and expert advice, this book represents an executive-level educational program for money managers exploring the launch of alternative investment strategies or entering the hedge fund industry for the first time.
Stuart A. McCrary (Winnetka, IL) is a partner with Chicago Partners LLC and specializes in options, mortgage-backed securities, derivatives, and hedge funds. As president of Frontier Asset Management, McCrary managed and ran his own hedge fund before joining Chicago Partners. He received his BA and MBA from Northwestern University.

    He covers it all

    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.
