Hedge Fund Course


To be successful in the hedge fund business, financial professionals must understand every aspect of this dynamic investment vehicle. With Hedge Fund Course as your guide, you'll become familiar with the different aspects of hedge funds and discover how to achieve success in this field.

Hedge Fund Course presents all the technical and quantitative knowledge necessary to understand hedge funds, and complements the less-technical information presented in the popular How to Create and Manage a Hedge Fund—also written by Stuart McCrary. This self-study guide is designed to let you quickly learn as much as you require. Short chapters describe the essential facts on a particular hedge fund topic, and the question-and-answer section that accompanies each chapter allows you to delve deeper into the topics reviewed in the text. After a brief introduction, Hedge Fund Course gets down to business, with discussions of:

  • Different types of hedge funds and hedge fund investors
  • Hedge fund investment techniques
  • Hedge fund business models
  • Measuring the performance of hedge funds
  • Legislation and regulation of hedge funds
  • Accounting and taxation aspects of hedge funds
  • Risk management and hedge funds

Whether you're in the hedge fund business, have hedge fund clients, or invest in hedge funds, Hedge Fund Course can help you refine and develop your knowledge of this field.
