Product Description

From the Back Cover

This guide is derived from the author s notes for the two–day course of the same name that he presents for the Securities and Investment Institute.

It is neither a transcript of the course, nor a fully comprehensive work of reference. Rather, it is intended as an introductory text for those new to or unfamiliar with investments and asset management. It provides a broad and practical description of investment funds and fund management from a number of perspectives and aims to stimulate further, more detailed study.

Starting with the general economic background and rationale for the existence of funds, it moves through a description of the features and characteristics of different types of funds, and the associated regulatory and investor protection mechanisms, to the process of establishing a fund.

It then addresses the topic from the perspective of the portfolio manager, by providing an overview of the principal investment strategies and styles deployed in the construction of portfolios, and of their administration, before covering investor administration and, finally, the mathematics and methods of performance measurement.

Your own understanding of fund management after reading this guide will depend upon your interest and aspirations, your appetite for and approach to learning, and, of course, your expectations of the guide, which, please note, is an introduction to the subject; it will not make you an expert!

Format: Paperback
This book is a very short and concise text. It explains the basics of fund management and touches lightly on the actual fund management processes and equations that it uses. A good book for complete beginners or for students looking to gain basic knowledge about fund management.

Format: Paperback
Hoped this would provide a good starting manual. It does provide a good oversight for people new to the industry, but it is lacking in depth and detail

Font size is so big it looks like its been written for 10 year olds, and it is thin on pages, so you feel a bit short-changed after buying the book. There are few graphic illustrations, and those it has are rather dull

Do not waste your money. This is absolutely useless unless you know nothing at all about finance. To say it is all Janet and John is disrespectful to those books!

This book was a concise introduction to fund management. Although not too detailed it provided enough information for a beginner within the industry.
