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.

Hedge fund managers, administrators, prime brokers and those with risk oversight will find this book informative. It is a practical and implementable guide for risk management and oversight of hedge fund risks and financing with a detailed discussion on liquidity and funding risk management.

The Economics and Finance of Hedge Funds updates an earlier review by the authors. It includes reviews of recent studies on topics that were covered in the earlier survey, and summarizes research on new topics that were not part of the previous survey. These new topics cover a broad gamut of issues, ranging from hedge funds' use of leverage and exposure to different risks to their impact on various asset markets. The Economics and Finance of Hedge Funds consists of five broad sections. The first section reviews the literature examining both the time-series and cross-sectional variation in hedge fund performance. Time-series performance studies cover return generating processes, dynamic risk exposures, and determination of managerial skill. The second section covers studies focused on the cross-sectional relations between hedge funds' characteristics (including contractual features and time-varying features such as size and age) and fund performance. The third section analyzes the literature on the sources and nature of risks faced by hedge fund investors. In particular, the authors discuss risks that can arise from managerial incentives and sources of capital. The fourth section summarizes research on the role of hedge funds in the financial system. Specific topics here include hedge funds' impact on systemic risk, asset prices, and liquidity provision in financial markets. The fifth and final section focuses on potential biases and limitations of hedge fund data sources.


Hedge Funds And Operational Risk

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.
