Creating and marketing hedge funds, and investing in them, is perhaps one of the least understood areas of asset management. While much of this stems from hedge funds' renowned lack of transparency, it is also due to their very different focus compared to more "traditional" investments such as mutual funds. Hedge fund managers aim to outperform by generating returns that are not directly linked to market performance (beta). This element of outperformance is attributable to the skill of the fund managers and their investment strategies (alpha). But, as this course will show, all hedge funds are different. Their limited ownership and investment structure allows enormous freedom in investment philosophy and trading strategies.

This value pack includes three courses:

  • Hedge funds - an introduction
  • Hedge funds - investing
  • Hedge funds - strategies
