5.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Introduction 21 Aug 2014
By Cliff Bryant - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This edition is based on the first edition by Robert Jaeger, which was published in 2003. I have not read the first edition.

The book seems up to date. Of course, I am not that knowledgeable about hedge funds, and it was published in 2012, only two years ago. The treatment seems to be fairly comprehensive. The discussion is obviously a summary and overview, and lacks depth. The book discusses the CAPM and the efficient market hypothesis. It then goes on to say that the EMH has been refuted by behavioral economics. It mentions the work of Andrew Lo and Robert Shiller. All through the book talks about how institutional investors have come over to investing in hedge funds. The issue for institutional investors is not so much the absolute returns that hedge funds are known for. Rather, institutions may be more interested diversification and returns that are uncorrelated with the market, and protection against market shocks.

The book was a nice introduction to hedge funds. The primary idea that I came away with is that hedge funds are able to take both long and short positions in market securities. Whereas, mutual funds are primarily long-only investors. Hedge funds, of course, are not subject to all the regulations and reporting requirements that constrain mutual funds.
