Opalesque Industry Update - The second edition of All About Hedge Funds, written by hedge fund industry expert Ezra Zask is now available.|
This comprehensive introduction to hedge funds tells investors and industry professionals everything they need to know about the subject in easy-to-understand English. All About Hedge Funds includes discussion of the opportunities and risks in popular strategies, including long-short equity, global macro and fixed income as well as leverage, derivatives, short selling and other tools of the trade.
The book gives a detailed history of the industry and, more importantly, a thorough discussion of the changes in hedge funds and investment management brought on by the recent credit crisis and the institutionalization of the industry.
Fully updated to take into account the fallout from the financial trauma of recent years, All About Hedge Funds also covers today's legal, regulatory and tax issues, increasingly complex areas post-crisis. The author also explains how to fit hedge funds into a balanced portfolio for both individual and institutional investors to enhance overall returns during one of the most demanding periods in international investment history.
In light of hedge fund losses and the Madoff scandal, All About Hedge Funds provides a useful guide to risk management and due diligence techniques and best practices.
“Every investor stands to benefit from Zask’s long experience and winning narrative,” says Donald H. Putnam, Managing Partner, Grail Partners LLC.
Zask is the founder and president of SFC Associates, a securities and financial consulting firm.
