Hedge Fund Risk Fundamentals
Solving the Risk Management and Transparency ChallengeBook - 2004
In the constantly evolving hedge fund marketplace, nothing is more central--but in many ways, more amorphous and elusive--than risk. Yet there remains no standard for analyzing and measuring risk within this highly secretive, largely unregulated field, leaving the thousands of hedge funds--and the tens of thousands of hedge fund investors--in dangerously dim light. The industry has not solved the "transparency" challenge--communicating risk to investors without disclosing proprietary information.
Hedge Fund Risk Fundamentals is the first book to bring these issues to the forefront. With clarity, concision, and minimal math, Richard Horwitz lays out the key components and the cutting-edge processes in the field of hedge fund risk management today. Against that backdrop, he presents a groundbreaking utility destined to set the standard for transparency and risk management within the hedge fund universe.
You’ll learn why, when it comes to risk management, 1 + 1 = 1.41. For all of those perplexed by the difficulties of assessing risk in hedge fund investing, Horwitz’s concepts make for an invaluable road map and a demystifying resource that hedge funds and investors at all levels will find indispensable.
Because there is no standard in the hedge fund marketplace for analyzing and measuring risk, industry cannot communicate risk to investors without disclosing proprietary information. Writing in plain language and using minimal math, Horwitz, director of risk management at an investment management firm, lays out key components and cutting- edge processes in the field of hedge fund risk management, then presents a new method for managing risk.
