That's why author Richard C. Wilson—head of the largest hedge fund networking group in the industry—has created The Hedge Fund Book. Filled with extensive interviews of various hedge fund managers, real-world case studies, review questions, and much more, this one-of-a-kind resource provides a solid foundation in specialized hedge fund knowledge for both financial professionals and those aspiring to enter this field.
Page by page, The Hedge Fund Book offers expert analysis of funds within different phases of their life cycles and investment processes, and examines each cycle in ways that would be informative for marketers as well as investors, bankers, and financial professionals who would like to learn more about day-to-day hedge fund operations. Along the way, this accessible guide will show you:
