Funds of Hedge Funds: Performance, Assessment, Diversification, and Statistical Properties, Volume 10
Greg N. Gregoriou
Butterworth/Heinemann/Elsevier, 2006 - Business & Economics - 466 pages
With about $450 billion in assets, hedge funds of funds are the most recent darling of investors. While hedge funds are designed for the very rich and for large institutional investors such as exchanges and pension funds, and carry high risk for the promise of high returns, Hedge Funds of Funds spread investment among a number of hedge funds and theoretically reduce risk and increase diversification, while maintaining the potential for higher than average returns. Odds are that some pension fund of yours is invested heavily in these products, and more recently these Funds of Funds (FOFs) have been opened to more and more individual investors, and over the past 5 years, high net worth individuals and families have become serious investors in these FOFs. Since this is a new and extremely fast-moving financial phenomenon, academic research has just begun in earnest, and this is the first book to present rigorous academic research by some of the leading lights in academic finance, carefully analyzing the broad array of issues involved in FOFs.
