This book is about hedge fund of funds – funds which invest across a range of underlying hedge funds.

  • Existing and potential hedge fund investors
  • Existing and potential hedge fund of funds investors
  • Hedge fund of funds personnel
  • Trainee hedge fund of funds managers and analysts

  • Hedge fund of funds administrators
  • Prime broker capital introduction personnel
  • Hedge fund of funds lawyers
  • Hedge fund of funds leverage providers and structurers

  • Part II is dedicated to understanding what a hedge fund of fund does ...
