Handbook of hedge funds

Hedge funds are the fastest growing sector of the financial industry, and this trend is set to continue. Non technical yet sophisticated, the Handbook of Hedge Funds removes the veil of secrecy that surrounds these often misunderstood investment vehicles. Blending facts, practical tips, and personal insights, written by an expert in the field, it provides a complete analysis of what hedge funds are, how they operate, and how they should be used in a portfolio.

The Handbook of Hedge Funds provides:
* A discussion on the history and regulation of hedge funds
* Detailed analysis of hedge fund strategies illustrated by trade examples from successful hedge fund managers
* A complete guide on the various risk and return statistics used by hedge funds
* A description of existing hedge fund databases and indices.
* An overview of how to use hedge funds in portfolio construction
* New material on structured products and funds of hedge funds

This book included a foreword by Mark Anson, CIO of Hermes Investments.
