In an initial stage, we explore the mechanisms behind a hedge fund failure in detail and propose a causal model that could explain the various scenarios that can occur when hedge funds default. A second stochastic analysis of the sample database allows us to propose a loss model for operational failures and to better understand the limitations of a naïve diversification aimed at reducing the loss from a single event by reducing its share of the overall portfolio.
