Focusing on the wide range of hedge fund strategy choices and their associated challenges and risks, this title presents a wealth of research that attempts to guide the reader past the potential pitfalls and develop thier risk assessment skills. Schachter presents cutting-edge research on hedge funds with broad coverage of investing, risk management and portfolio allocation and in-depth analysis on a variety of topics including VaR estimation, illiquidity and dynamic investment strategies. Important differences between approaches to hedge funds and standard investment choices are explored so that the reader can accurately compare and measure the pros and cons of various risk management strategies and better assess whether or not to follow a particular strategy. In addition, hedge fund investors will be better equipped to adequately measure and weigh risk against benefits in order to optimise their asset allocations to hedge funds. Finally, the title's accessible format explains technical material in detail throughout the text, making the title ideal for readers with only moderate technical knowledge.
