While the reasons may be disputed, most will agree that the past few years have presented enormous challenges to hedge fund managers and active managers in general. As evidence, we’re beginning to see higher-than-normal closures and redemption suspensions from previously successful managers. It feels like it’s more than just a string of bad bets. It feels like the current market regime isn’t conducive to the fundamental research and value investing that has served managers for decades.
Incredibly, we’ve seen some of the most celebrated, marquee hedge funds struggling in situations like Valeant, Community Health, and Sun Edison. In this environment, it’s no longer enough to be a great stock picker. Managers need to evolve.
This is why we’ve begun publishing exclusively for the hedge fund manager, The Hedge Fund Survival Guide.
The second volume in our series, these practical guides outline the best-in-class practices of the top hedge funds in concepts such as risk management, analyst compensation, client reporting, and attribution analysis. It’s a must-read for hedge fund managers that are committed to improving—instead of fading away in this new market regime.
What's in the guide?
- how to plan for hedge fund asset growth
- an analysis on market breadth
- how hedge funds can better market themselves
- an analysis of hedge fund small cap investments
