Mr. Wilson has done it again with this book. He goes in depth on the Hedge Fund industry. Topics included and covered are:

1. Hedge fund mechanics and statistics
2. Hedge fund ecosystem
3. Interview with several fund managers
4.Interview with hedge fund start up gurus
5. Due diligence
6. Governance & best practices

It is required reading for the Hedge Fund Professional course but it will not disappoint. I did learn a lot from it and especially learned how the 'big boys' in the industry think.

It is an excellent read and a HUGE crash course in the Hedge Fund / investment industry.

Richard Wilson is without any doubt the single most effective proponent of hedge fund education in the world. In this book, he provides highly insightful information on hedge fund best practices, not only for maximizing the success of capital raising efforts, but also a wide range of operational and multi-functional best practices as well. The information in this book is worth thousands of dollars in consulting fees in an otherwise very secretive and exclusive industry. Great compilation of advice from a wide range of industry experts. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about what makes hedge funds more successful in capital raising and institutionalizing operations.

This book is very well written, it goes straight to the point!! After only couple of hours of reading, you can directly put in to practice the valuable lessons that author Richard Wilson clarifies with concrete examples.

My only advise that I could give : if you want to make it within this sophisticated and competitive industry, there is no time for bad experiences ...
So read the book and you will be able understand most strategies and decision to make in order to be successful as a Hedge fund manager or a third party Marketer !

A fantastic book that contains so many valuable points of view from actual hedge Fund professionals on some of the nuances and most importantly the focus you need to have on a day to day basis in order to generate substantial capital to build your hedge fund business.

Most importantly I liked how the author shows there is no holy grail to capital raising, but that there are many daily acts you can engage in to eventually build a strong pipeline to become an institutional like entity when it comes to building credibility and capital for your business.

Richard Wilson has created an excellent manual for new and existing hedge fund managers. In addition to his blogs, this material cuts to the chase and describes in layman terms each functional area of a hedge fund business (marketing, sales, operations, service providers, etc.). As a new hedge fund manager that is in the middle of launching, I can assure you that this book is where you must start. This book includes valuable insights from other hedge fund managers as well as critical information on what causes hedge funds to fail as a business. As a co-founder of a family of mutual funds that operated for almost ten years, you don't want to miss the opportunity to find out where you may have weaknesses or blind spots. The Hedge Fund Book is to the point, practical and provides the actionable steps if you want to be successful in creating a new hedge fund or more importantly taking your hedge fund to the next level.

The book is an insightful work. Industry research is performed by conducting one-on-one interviews with hedge fund managers. Richard C. Wilson asks the important questions to each managers and details the response. There is valuable information to those whom may be new to the industry and for savvy veterans as well.

Recommended.
