Once again we have assembled an unique group of New York based alternative asset management experts, ranging from a $12 billion hedge funds to an emerging manager. This animated Roundtable discussion highlights one of the most important aspects of active money management: idea creation, execution and risk management.

On 27 pages, this Roundtable includes exceptional insights and intelligence:

  • How do hedge fund and alternative asset managers create their trades and strategies?
  • Can academic studies be relevant for active money management?
  • How did alternative asset managers manage to identify risk early in 2007 and 2008 and successfully created insurance positions to protect capital?
  • How did some hedge funds trade and profit from Quantitative Easing?
  • What systemic risks may be looming right now over the horizon?
  • Will inflation be a risk? Where and how can inflation be identified early on?
In addition, this Roundtable discusses:
  • What opportunities are hedge fund managers enthusiastic about?
  • What strategies should risk-averse investors be looking at?
  • How important is Technical Analysis today?
  • How have CTAs evolved their risk management since the days of the Turtle traders (the 80s)?
  • How important is investor education? Why should hedge funds engage in educating investors and prospects, and how?
  • What could be unintended consequences within FinReg and the Volker Rule?
  • Which funds have doubled their asset base during the last 12 months?
The 2010 Opalesque New York Roundtable was sponsored by Trading Technologies and took place October 7th with the following experts:
  • Robert E. Kiernan III, Chief Executive Officer, Advanced Portfolio Management
  • Sam Barai, Portfolio Manager and Principal, Barai Capital Management
  • Bob Treue, President and Chief Executive Officer, Barnegat Fund
  • Bernie Drury, President and Chief Investment Officer, Drury Capital
  • Thomas Humphrey, Partner, Head of Marketing & Client Development, GoldenTree Asset Management
  • Russ Rausch, EVP Global Buyside Sales, Trading Technologies
We also thank the Opalesque 2010 Roundtable Series Sponsors Custom House Group and Taussig Capital for their support.

Sam Barai: Former Hedge Fund Manager and NVIDIA Employee Plead Guilty to Insider Trading - http://www.loansafe.org/sam-barai-former-hedge-fund-manager-and-nvidia-employee-plead-guilty-to-insider-trading

Well, when we planned this NY Roundtable in September 2010, Sam Barai was recommended to us as an "emerging" (new) hedge fund manager. End of January it became public that the FBI raided his office (http://www.opalesque.com/IndustryUpdates/1429/Barai_Capital_caught_in_insider_trading_scandal_fund142.html). Matthias Knab |   May 31, 2011 08:29:33 PM
