And hedge funds aren't just for the super-wealthy anymore. Hedges on Hedge Funds takes an inside look at hedge funds, helping investors of virtually every size understand: How a hedge fund works, including what a hedge fund is and what it is not
The three categories of hedge funds, and how to use them to actually reduce portfolio risk
Funds of hedge funds, which make theselucrative vehicles available to more investors than ever before
Investors in today's tumultuous markets can't afford to overlook any possibilities, especially those with proven track records of success. Hedges on Hedge Funds removes the veil of secrecy from hedge funds, revealing how and why they consistently outperform markets— and how to make them a valuable component of your investment portfolio.
