This book provides an objective look into the complicated and rapidly changing world of hedge funds. The book does not attempt to promote hedge funds as an asset class but instead provides a synthesis of the theoretical and empirical literature on hedge funds. By providing objective evidence, the book dispels some common misconceptions about hedge funds involving their volatility and use of derivatives and leverage. The book examines hedge funds and provides important insights about such topics as their structure and how they work, hedge fund strategies, performance and measurement, and trends and future prospects. Readers gain an in-depth understanding about hedge funds from experts in this field from around the world. In today’s financial environment, hedge funds emerge as a dynamic area that continues to evolve at a rapid pace. This book takes readers not only through the core topics and issues of hedge funds but also examines the latest trends and leading issues and developments. Additionally, discussion of research on hedge funds permeates the book. The coverage extends from discussing basic concepts and their application to increasingly intricate and real-world situations. Thus, this volume spans the gamut from theoretical to practical, while attempting to offer a useful balance of detailed and user-friendly coverage. Readers interested in a broad survey will benefit as will those looking for more in-depth presentations of specific areas within this field of study.
