Publisher's Summary

Hedge fund managers who survived and profited through the 2008 financial crisis share their secrets.

In light of the colossal losses and amidst the resulting confusion that still lingers, it is time to rethink money management in the broadest of terms. Drastic changes need to be made, and managers who actually made money during 2008 make for a logical starting place.

The Invisible Hands provides investors and traders with the latest thinking from some of the best and the most successful players in money management, highlighting the specific risk and return objectives of each, and discussing the evolution of certain styles and beliefs in money management.

  • Contains revealing interviews with top hedge fund managers who survived and prospered through the 2008 financial crisis
  • Outlines investments and strategies for the rocky road ahead
  • Reveals how hedge fund managers are seeking a new paradigm of risk management and profit-making opportunities in the post-crisis world
  • Gives guidance on how traditional investors such as pensions, endowments, foundations, and family offices should rethink how they approach asset allocation and portfolio construction

The top macro thinkers found in this book reveals their own approaches to markets, risk, and the broader world in which we live, as well as their advice on how investors should be approaching money management in today's uncertain world.

Interesting hands-on takes on the crisis

Always interesting to listen to traders and hedge fund managers talk about the crisis. You get to see the quirks of the guys behind the moves academics talk about: their egos, their hunches, their scientific approach (or lack thereof). That said, what's with the different accents??
