Hedge funds are in the news and on the minds of sophisticated investors more than ever. Investors have questions about how the funds are structured, where the assets are allocated, and whether hedge funds can truly act as a hedge against market risk. The answers are all here in Investing in Hedge Funds.

Until recently, much of what makes hedge funds tick has been closely guarded--the intellectual property of Wall Street's investment elite. In this updated and revised text, Joseph G. Nicholas, founder and chairman of the leading industry information provider Hedge Fund Research, Inc., travels inside the hedge fund marketplace to explain the alternative investment strategies of top fund managers, providing clear descriptions of how to access these funds and where they're headed. It's a complete guide that everyone investing in hedge funds should study closely.

Title: Investing in Hedge Funds
Author: Joseph G. Nicholas
 
Excerpt
This book is designed to introduce the reader to hedge funds and provide an overview of the main strategies in which hedge funds engage. Chapter 1 addresses the question: What is a hedge fund? The term has no formal definition and is used interchangeably to describe both an investment structure and an investment approach. The key to understanding hedge funds lies in separating the structure of the investment from the alternative investment strategy the fund manager employs. Chapter 2 discusses the hedge fund structures that allow hedge fund managers to use a wider variety of innovative investment strategies than more traditional forms of investment. Chapter 3 is an introduction to the most prominent hedge fund strategies. It introduces the elements of investing that make up these approaches. Chapters 4 through 14 examine one hedge fund strategy each and describe how the practitioners of each strategy produce returns and control risk. Chapter 15 suggests a framework for selecting hedge funds and alternative investment strategies for investment allocation.Chapter 16 offers more detail on due diligence and describes three issues that affect hedge fund investors after they make an initial allocation: (1) ongoing due diligence, (2) portfolio transparency, and (3) risk monitoring.
