Editorial Reviews

Review

An in-depth look at hedge fund investing. The authors managed to secure from top hedge fund investors a noteworthy level of information on everything from manager sourcing to evaluating performance and risk to redemption triggers. 
--opalesque.com

A superb chronicle and homage to personalities that gave birth to the industry.  Refreshingly frank "open mic "style interviews with today's industry leaders in chapters on nine luminaries. Well worth the read. --AllAboutAlpha.com

Review

"In Top Hedge Fund Investors, Rittereiser and Kochard have put to rest any lingering doubts that hedge funds have become an essential component of successful investment programs. When a collection of extraordinarily talented individuals, like those profiled in this book, dedicate their lives to a common discipline, we can be sure that these strategies have reached a permanent level of prominence in the investment world. Top Hedge Fund Investors profiles men and women with passion, courage, intellect, tenacity, inquisitiveness and resiliency, who have helped establish a standard of excellence in hedge fund investing that all those who read this book will benefit from emulating. We are all richer for the authors' efforts to bring together this outstanding volume of Stories, Strategy and Advice from some of the best hedge fund investors in the business."
Mark W. Yusko, CEO & Chief Investment Officer, Morgan Creek Capital Management

"Top Hedge Fund Investors offers a refreshing perspective and unique insight into the shrouded world of hedge funds. We get a glimpse beyond the numbers and gain an insider's view of this complex industry. As one who has been with this business for nearly thirty years, I can attest that this book rings true."
Lawrence P. Chiarello, Partner, SkyView Investment Advisors LLC

"Great subject, terrific insights from top allocators to hedge funds. Eldon, Meyer and Hodge show how to avoid making unforced errors when investing. They and the other Investors make this the best book I have seen on selecting money managers."
Douglas Sperry Makepeace, President, Sperry Fund Management LLC, New York City

"An insightful tour of the Hedge Fund World, with some of the most experienced guides that demystify a lot of the wrong ideas people have of this industry and its players."
Michel Amsellem, Member of the Advisory board Banque Heritage

"Given the importance that 'hedge funds' have gained in financial markets it behooves all investors, not just professionals, to understand the underlying principles used by prominent hedge fund investors. Top Hedge Fund Investors provides an interesting description of the investment philosophy of some of the leading practitioners of this relatively unknown segment of the financial markets, and how they have organized their firms."
Charles Falcon, Retired Corporate Finance Executive

Format: Hardcover
There are two types of people in this world: Those in the Hedge Fund industry, and those who are affected by the Hedge Fund industry.

Top Hedge Fund Investors: Stories, Strategies, and Advice unlocks many previously unknown secrets and perspectives about Hedge Funds and the perspectives used by the people who have fueled this segment's rise.

Cathleen Rittereiser and Lawrence Kochard present a clear, easy-to-understand (yet sophisticated) look at what's driven the most successful Hedge Fund strategists.

This book is timely. Its examination, for example, of strategies for risk management in Hedge Funds is a clear, concise look at a best-in-breed approach. The authors also do a great job of examining short-selling strategies - clearing up some popular misconceptions and bringing the definition of the practice up to date. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking a better understanding of what drives successful Hedge Funds.

Format: Hardcover
As someone beginning a career in the hedge fund industry, I think it's important to find mentors and learn as much as you can from them. "Top Hedge Fund Investors" accelerated the process for me, because it lets 9 leading investors in hedge funds tell their stories. It was like getting an immersion course in hedge fund investing. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to be a better hedge fund investor or marketer, but it's especially insightful for those just starting out.

This book is an excellent introduction to hedge fund investing, from the perspective of a select group of the top practitioners in the industry. As they did with their earlier book, Foundation and Endowment Investing, Rittereiser and Kochard have offered clear, concise, well written and useful insight for professional investors, policy makers, and students of investing. I'm happy to recommend this book.

Cathleen Rittereiser and Larry Kochard have done it again! They've written another must read for institutional investors specifically and investors in general. Their latest book, Top Hedge Fund Investors, helps to demystify the asset class and let people understand why and how they should consider them (or emulate them) for their portfolio.

Format: Hardcover
Stories, Strategies and Advice - this book delivers what it promises in its title. It provides the kind of information and personal insights that you hope to get from attending an entire hedge fund conference plus the networking events. It's great to get advice from the masters in just over 200 pages that you can read, put down, and then easily pick up again. Kudos to the authors.
