The Hedge Fund Book

Category: Books
Hedge funds are now in the news more than a thousand times a day and yet it is hard to find clear, factual information about how they operate, raise capital, and invest. The Hedge Fund Book provides real-world case studies of various hedge fund managers providing a solid foundation in specialized hedge fund knowledge for both financial professionals and those aspiring to enter this field. It provides an analysis of funds within different phases of their life cycles and investment processes, and examines each cycle in ways that would be informational for marketers as well as investors, bankers, and financial professionals who would like to learn more about day-to-day hedge fund operations

Emphasizes creation of marketing materials. Talks about topics to mention specifically in marketing--very helpful.

New insight: Focus on selling process, trust, risk management (especially) and infrastructure rather than returns

Author has extra videos online that extend book topics, free discounts on related services. Author is well intentioned.

Really liked that he included a standard due diligence questionnaire


Points made are often basic (emphasize unique selling proposition, positive thinking), rather than specific - Leaves out prime brokers & cap intro, soft dollars, legal & compliance issues (3c1vs 3c7, accredited vs qualified, etc.), historic context (Dodd-Frank legislation impact, rise of high frequency) & industry landscape (funds vs fund of funds, institutions vs family offices etc).

Author comes off as obsequious in the interviews when he always agrees with subjects. Too many interviews with service providers, not enough with name brand hedge fund managers. Study questions seem silly for a non-academic book."
