A Framework for Evaluating Hedge Fund Risk

$25.00

Hedge funds are a large and increasingly important part of the investment management landscape, controlling in excess of $2 trillion. They have many unique attributes, relative to long-only mutual funds and pension funds. Some of these attributes include leverage, concentration, illiquidity, and a lack of transparency. Accordingly, standard
metrics that apply to the long-only space may not adequately measure hedge fund risk.
