“The result is a timely, comprehensive book for retail investors who want to know how their funds work (or don’t), for financial planners, and for students who aspire to join the fund industry.”—ValueWalk
From the Inside Flap
This thoroughly revised second edition of The Fund Industry provides a detailed guide to the world of mutual funds and the investment management industry for individual shareholders, institutional investors, and professionals in the industry. Written by experts Robert Pozen and Theresa Hamacher, this comprehensive resource explains how investors and advisers can research a fund and assess whether it's right for a particular financial or retirement plan. Written in an engaging and accessible style, the book and companion website provide an insider's view of how funds are invested, sold, and regulated.
The authors reveal how savvy fund managers pick stocks and bonds, make trading decisions, handle proxy voting, and evaluate risk and return. The Fund Industry explores the distribution of fund shares directly to consumers, through financial advisers and via retirement plans, and explains the complex operational and regulatory requirements governing funds. The final section discusses trends in the fund industry outside the United States, drawing on examples from Europe, Latin America, and Asia.
Keeping pace with today's investing trends, this updated edition expands coverage of hedge funds, liquid alternatives, ETFs, and target date funds, and adds an introduction to derivatives and how they are used in funds. The companion website offers readers exclusive information, as well as a special section for instructors, containing presentation materials, discussion questions, and case studies.
The Fund Industry, Second Edition is essential reading for all investors who want to know more about the funds they own and for financial professionals looking to navigate a complex industry and better serve their clients.
