—Vikas Agarwal, Assistant Professor of Finance, J. Mack Robinson College of Business Georgia State University
“Our understanding of the properties of hedge funds as an asset class has improved enormously over the past few years, although many questions remain unanswered. This timely collection of important articles covers a broad range of topics including hedge fund investment, risk measurement, and performance appraisal. Academics and practitioners alike will find this a valuable source of cutting-edge thinking.”
—Chris Brooks, Professor of Finance, Cass Business School, City University, London
“Despite the continuing vilification of hedge funds in the popular press, an increasing number of institutional and wealthy private investors are seeking to bifurcate their alpha and beta and diversify their exposure to equities and bonds. Investors are gaining traditional asset class exposure through low-cost, passive approaches and capturing a premium to that return through active investment management approaches in less-efficient markets like those within the domain of hedge funds. This book touches all aspects of this structural change in the investment management industry.”
