There are between 6000-7000 hedge funds worldwide, with assets of approximately $650 billion. Industry predictions are that assets will exceed $1 trillion in the next 5 to 10 years as individual investors and pension plans seek to diversify their holdings. A Practical Guide to Hedge Funds will give you a basic understanding of what hedge funds are, how they work, how they compare to mutual funds and traditional investments, and what the results will likely be if you invest in them. This is one of the few books where you will read interviews with hedge fund investors and their investment experiences. If you're tired of depending on the traditional equity markets for your portfolio returns. A Practical Guide to Hedge Funds will help you discover what investing in hedge funds can do for you.
