RRP $768.99

Capital adequacy allocation is not yet a legal requirement for hedge funds, but given the increase in global investigations, the high failure rate and lack of consistent benchmarking standards, the idea of financial reserves and enforced operational risk management are appealing prospects for the hedge fund investment community. Most hedge funds have superficial risk management but very few apply a thorough operational risk methodology. Independent consulting risk manager, Armelle Guizot, presents in-depth classifications of the range of operational and systemic risks and provides the reader with a benchmark to allocate capital reserves to support them. Based on Guizot's operational and market risk experience gained through working with high profile clients such as JP Morgan, Sumitomo Mitsui and Merrill Lynch, the reader will find that this report: covers all the major operational and regulatory risks associated with hedge funds; provides infrastructural risk maps; introduces a simple methodology to calculate capital adequacy; incorporates industry risk management surveys to benchmark against peers; and encourages fund managers to think ahead. This report provides hedge fund managers with a complete set of risk principles and standards to avoid operational risks and potential financial losses. At the same time it proves a valuable resource for those without advanced quantitative knowledge, allowing them to quickly grasp the hidden risks of hedge funds.

What makes this book special is that it presents an insider’s perspective of what went right, what went wrong, and what are the lessons learned from the crisis. David Belmont had a front row seat and role to play with hedge funds as a crisis scenario few had contemplated played out—a scenario with not only huge investment risks, but also counterparty, funding, and operational risks. Want to know what really happened to hedge funds during the financial crisis? The holistic view is presented here: how to manage a hedge fund with investment, funding, counterparty and operational risks in mind.

David Belmont has written a rather well-researched, thoughtful book on managing hedge fund risk that serves well as a reminder for what hedge fund CIOs, CFOs, and COOs need to think about before they use leverage in their business. The book is written in a style accessible to the lay reader as well as the industry-savvy risk manager. The experience of the managers of the Icarus fund possibly represents what a lot of large well-pedigreed fund managers went through as the Financial Crisis of 2007/2008 developed. I expect it to be received extremely well by people on the buy and sell sides alike.

David Belmont’s Managing Hedge Fund Risk and Financing is a must-read for anyone investing in, or working for, a hedge fund. David does a superior job of providing both a comprehensive and understandable framework for thinking about hedge fund risk, as well as great detail for understanding, analyzing and managing various risks associated with different types of hedge funds. In particular, the book highlights often overlooked risks including funding and counterparty risk. I learned a lot as a result of reading the book and gave copies to the hedge fund and risk management teams at UTIMCO.

Written by a seasoned risk professional, David Belmont’s new book contains a wealth of insights on how hedge fund risk ought to be managed. The clear and direct writing style makes even complex and arcane issues easy to understand. This book should be of interest to hedge fund managers and investors alike.

"Closed-End Funds, Exchange-Traded Funds, and Hedge Funds: Origins, Functions, and Literature is a concise and valuable book that will be of interest to individual investors, financial professionals, and academic researchers, alike. It provides a brief history and institutional discussion of these investment companies and also presents a summary of the research on these funds. Investment practitioners will find the book useful as a reference and as a quick refresher on the current state of knowledge regarding each fund type. Equally important, it provides academic researchers with an accurate institutional framework within which to cast their theoretical models, and a point of departure for expanding the empirical analysis for improving our understanding of these funds. All-in-all, this is a very valuable book; I highly recommend it." (John J. Jackson, Professor of Economics, Auburn University) "Professors Anderson, Born, and Schnusenberg provide a valuable service in this monograph. The practical significance of closed-end funds, exchange-traded funds, and hedge funds has increased dramatically in recent years, but all too many academics and investors know little about them. This text presents a carefully-focused and understandable description of these investment vehicles, highlighting the big, unresolved questions, while also including careful and fair accounts of the state of the literature. Nothing extraneous clutters the presentation, but, more importantly, nothing necessary is left out. Highly recommended." (T. Randolph Beard, Professor of Economics and Public Policy, Auburn University) "This book is both useful as a reference book and as an additive, educational overview of ETFs and hedge funds, as well as CEFs. In today's tumultuous markets, much reference is made to these subjects without a clear understanding of the vehicles, their structure and their history. This is a very timely publication and should be viewed as an important read. The book contains definitive explanations and also includes an excellent summary of past works in this area. Readable, informative and highly useful as a reference source." (Kathleen A. Wayner, President and CEO, Bowling Portfolio Management)
