Publisher's Summary

So You Want to Start a Hedge Fund provides critical lessons and thoughtful insights to those trying to decipher the industry, as well as those seeking to invest in the next generation of high performers. This audiobook foregoes the sensational, headline-grabbing stories about the few billionaire hedge fund managers to reach the top of the field. Instead, it focuses on the much more common travails of start-ups and small investment firms. The successes and failures of a talented group of competitive managers show what it takes for managers and allocators to succeed. These accounts include lessons on funding, team development, strategy, performance, and allocation.

The hedge fund industry is concentrated in the largest funds, and the big funds are getting bigger. In time, some of these funds will not survive their founders and large sums will get reallocated to a broader selection of different managers. This practical guide outlines the allocation process for fledgling funds, and demonstrates how allocators can avoid pitfalls in their investments. So You Want to Start a Hedge Fund also shows you how to: develop a sound strategy and raise the money you need, gain a real-world perspective about how allocators think and act, structure your team and investment process for success, and recognize the patterns of successful start-ups.

Arrogant and unhelpful

This book is written by a hedge fund manager and geared towards people who want to start a hedge fund. Basically he tells you how you shouldn’t do that because you aren’t him. I’m not sure what his goal was in this book besides to discourage others and inflate himself. Weak author. Pass on this.
