From the Inside Flap: The Prudent Investor’s Guide to Hedge Funds

Hedge funds are typically thought of as highly risky investments. Not so. In fact, some hedge funds are among the most conservative investments you can make. While speculative, high-flying hedge funds make the headlines, others quietly go about the work of crafting unique investment strategies and hedging portfolios against market risk.

Investors are often surprised to learn that the very first hedge fund was created more than 50 years ago as a conservative investment approach designed expressly to protect capital from market downturns. From this pioneering concept has grown a $400 billion-plus industry–a relatively little-known corner of the investment world but one that attracts the best and brightest investment talent of our time. Drawn by the chance to invest with top money managers who find opportunity outside the market mainstream, individual and institutional investors alike are increasingly using hedge funds to boost portfolio returns while managing risk.

The Prudent Investor’s Guide to Hedge Funds shows why affluent investors who want to be financially secure through retirement should know about this frequently misunderstood investment vehicle. Written by an industry insider and bestselling financial author, this much-needed book takes the mystery out of hedge funds, answering key questions and delving into the minds of hedge fund managers and investors. Its blend of facts, practical tips, and sometimes startling insights will help you to not only understand the hedge fund phenomenon but also know which critical questions to ask before you invest.
