Jess Lederman is a writer and fervent admirer of George MacDonald and C.S. Lewis. He lives in Alaska, where he plays keyboard in All Hims for Him (his men's Bible study band!) and serves on the boards of directors of MY House (which helps homeless youth in the Matanuska Valley), the Alaska Coalition for Housing and Homelessness, and the Alaska Veterans Museum. In his spare time, Jess invests in residential real estate and provides financing for home builders through his company, Azure Star, LLC.
Jess is one of the pioneers of modern mortgage finance, having been a co-founder of several national wholesale and correspondent mortgage companies, including two of the first private-sector counterparts to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He was the principal architect of the first rated adjustable-rate mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and the first limited partnership backed by subordinate MBS, and has created innovative methods of financing affordable housing. Jess has published over forty books on the global financial markets.
The list of books written on hedge funds is a short one, and this book is certainly the finest on the subject. The professionals who contributed their specialized knowledge are of the highest caliber, and better yet, many of them can be reached for counsel. Any investor with the capacity to invest at this level ought to know the mechanics of the various methodologies as clearly presented by the authors. I found all of the information to be useable and valuable information with absolutely no filler. Particularly of interest to me was all of the legal, tax and regulatory information which quite literally provided me with a blueprint from which I will begin building my (as GP) Private Investment Partnership. This book will eliminate countless hours with a securities attorney because now I know exactly how to direct the counsel.
