"International contributors include 22 academics in finance, business, and research analysis, and 16 hedge fund professionals. They examine issues related to the institutional framework of a special type of FOHF called undertakings for collective investments in transferable securities (UCITS) FOHFs, which were developed in response to calls for operational due diligence and improved transparency in the financial industry." --Reference and Research Book News, December 2013
"Hedge funds are now more than ever in the focus of many public debates and they are discussed by academics and practitioners as well. So the time for treating the diverse aspects of hedge funds in a book could not even be better. The book at hand by Greg N. Gregoriou will surely be a very valuable and readable contribution in this context as it covers the complete, difficult matter in its manyfold chapters and through the high expertise of the authors." --Carsten S. Wehn, DekaBank, Germany
"The 2007-9 Financial Markets Crisis also created a crisis for the fund of hedge funds industry. After the Crisis, basics such as liquidity, transparency, alpha generation, and understanding business risks gained renewed importance. Solutions to these criteria such as UCITS, managed accounts, and closer management of fund asset and liability risks became central to many fund of hedge funds. Additionally, leading fund of hedge funds now focus less on 'one size fits all' solutions and more on bespoke client portfolio solutions. The articles in Reconsidering Funds of Hedge Funds try to grapple with these industry changes and show a variety of different responses to the new environment. Fund of hedge fund investors will find this book and important update on an industry in transition." --James Purnell, Kenmar, USA
"We have witnessed tremendous growth in the intermediation in the hedge fund industry in the form of funds of hedge funds. However, there is still limited understanding about the risks and rewards as well as regulation of these intermediaries especially in light of the recent financial crisis. This book is a great collection of research articles that will improve the understanding of anyone interested in funds of hedge funds." --Vikas Agarwal, Georgia State University
"If your investment in fund of hedge funds suffered from the 2007-09 financial crisis, this book is the first to provide you with valuable insights into the measurement and effective management of various types of risk. It is the major resource for scholars and professionals interested in state-of-the-art approaches on operational due diligence and risk management." --Roland Füss, University of St.Gallen
From the Back Cover
This collection of research by academics and professionals presents the first comprehensive views of UCITs as well as recent trends in due diligence, risk management, and hedge fund deaths and survivors. Original papers by 22 academics and 16 hedge fund professionals include two sections on performance: one that looks at UCITS FoHF and one that deals with traditional FoHF performance. Asian and European regulatory themes are discussed, as are issues in allocation and tail risk. Most papers examine aspects of the 2008-12 financial crisis, and almost every paper addresses fund of hedge funds' management process before, during, and after the crisis. How will the funds of hedge funds business have to change in order to survive? This new research provides clues.
