Presentation :

We also present an application to active style allocation decisions in the hedge fund universe. Overall the results in this paper suggest that significant value can be added in a hedge fund portfolio through the systematic implementation of active style allocation decisions provided that a sound investment process is implemented that accounts for both non-normality and parameter uncertainty in hedge fund return distributions.
