"Hedge Funds and Managed Futures offers the reader a critical, yet constructive review of a number of important and timely topics. Critiques of conventional wisdom should prove valuable for both seasoned as well as new participants to the hedge fund industry. The chapters provide important insight on a number of key issues making this book an important asset to every serious investor or researcher." William K.H. Fung, Visiting Research Professor of Finance, London Business School "For institutional investors and researchers who want to gain insight and in-depth knowledge about investing in hedge funds and CTAs, this book is a must. The editors have done an outstanding job of gathering contributions of great practical use from internationally known academics and practitioners. The articles provide rigorous empirical analysis, sound methodologies and new evidence why alternative investments are more and more gaining momentum." Campbell R. Harvey, J. Paul Sticht Professor of International Business, Duke University "I think this book will prove to be very valuable to institutional investors who are interested in hedge funds and managed futures investing. The topics in this book cover virtually all aspects of dealing with hedge funds from an institutional perspective. It is also timely, as the current trend is that more and more institutional investors will start to examine to invest in hedge funds and managed futures. This book also provides a unique blend between academic theory and practitioner's real-life experience." Dr. Pieter Jelle van der Sluis, Senior Portfolio Manager, ABP Investments "This Handbook collects unique and useful insights into many of the core issues facing hedge fund and managed futures investors. The editors have gathered contributions from a broad range of leading academics and practitioners who are at the forefront of research in the alternative investment arena.
