This book has one major objective: to clarify some myths surrounding hedge funds and the hedge fund industry. Since the collapse of the technology sector, hedge funds have become popular and have consistently over performed the global equity markets. Many investors do not understand the investment philosophy and strategies of hedge funds. Here, the author uses a different approach, by presenting factual information in a simple and clear language. Upon reading this book, you will understand what hedge funds are, their investment strategies, and the risks and rewards of investing in them. You will also learn about offshore funds and the investment process of hedge funds, and understand hedge funds' global investment climate and statutory regulations. You will be in a better position to decide the appropriateness and suitability of hedge funds for your investment needs. You will also learn about the risks of investing in hedge funds.
