Everything You Need to Know About Hedge Funds--What They Are, How They Can Improve Your Portfolio

Hedge funds have long been viewed as shadowy, high-risk investments, suitable only for the super-wealthy. Today, increasing numbers of individuals and institutions have come to view hedge funds as a way to improve the overall performance of their portfolios, reduce the risk, or even do both.

This comprehensive-yet-easy-to-follow guidebook reviews the distinctive risks of hedge funds, then shows you how they fit into the universe of investment options and how they can be incorporated into a well-diversified portfolio. Regardless of your investment objectives and strategies, All About Hedge Funds is the essential book for determining if this potentially lucrative--and increasingly mainstream--vehicle is right for you.

  • Opportunities and risks in the popular hedge fund strategies
  • Leverage, short selling, and hedging
  • How hedge funds fit into the global financial system
  • How hedge funds fit into a balanced stock/bond portfolio
  • Legal, regulatory, and tax issues
  • The EACM 100“ Index
  • And much more
