Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: 5,5 (1,5 in GER), University of St. Gallen, course: Doktorandenseminar; Corporate Finance, 49 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Nowadays, modern investors are well informed by Hedge Funds managers who are not getting tired promoting the merit of investing in hedge funds. These advisers draw elaborated graphs showing the benefits of hedge funds to an active managed portfolio. Investors have to believe in the advantages of shifting a significant part of their portfolio to hedge funds. In terms of the classical risk and return measures the advisers are right, high returns, low volatility and above all low correlations to the other asset classes in the portfolio. But as we know only the half is true. The misleading picture of volatility if measured with the classical portfolio instruments and the correlation effects is not solved in this paper. The research interest in this short paper is the distorted picture of returns given by the Hedge Funds Indices because of biases inherent to those indices.This paper gives an overview of the Hedge Funds Industry and the Hedge Funds Indices that are currently used by investors and highlights the differences between Hedge Funds and traditional Mutual Funds Indices. The problems of setting up those indices because of Hedge Fund idiosyncrasies are discussed. It is also shown why the performance of...

(Finance), 0 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper investigates 'activist investing' as adopted by some institutional investors and hedge funds, and explores the resulting impact on the decision-making and corporate governance processes of the companies in which they invest. Firstly, it suggests that although activist investing has become something of a fad and its benefit to firm performance is still disputed, investors' attitudes have changed and acceptance of the strategy is growing. Secondly, it posits that hedge funds, in keeping with their respective financial size and available resources will continue to apply this strategy with three key objectives in mind, namely: (i) To unlock value for short-term profit gains; (ii) To support a quasi-long-only medium-term (circa. 7 years) investment diversification strategy; (iii) To acquire businesses for the building of conglomerate industrial groups of companies, i.e. forging "King Cong" funds.For a more thorough introduction to hedge funds in general, readers are invited to read my earlier study titled:"The Challenge of reigning-in Hedge Funds through Regulation and the Need to improve Disclosure Requirements". the latter looks at:1.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Banking, Stock Exchanges, Insurance, Accounting, grade: Sehr gut, University of Vienna (Universität Wien), course: Macro Economics and Finance, 74 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The literature discusses Islamic investment funds and hedge funds as isolated issues. At present not much work is known, comparing these two very prominent alternative investment forms. This thesis attempts to fill this gap by providing a first insight into both and also tries to answer the following question: Can Islamic investment funds catch up with hedge funds? For this, the thesis compares Islamic investment funds and hedge funds on the basis of different factors, trying to answer three sub questions: What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? Are there differences and/or similarities between the two? How can an investment portfolio including both be balanced?As will be seen throughout the thesis, Islamic investment funds provide a handfull of advantages over hedge funds, even enabling the former to outperform the latter.Hedge funds rely mainly on gaining advantage through market inefficiencies, hedging the market risk through short-term opportunities. This construction puts the fund manager into a high risk position with high profit potential. Despite investment restrictions under Islamic law, a fund manager is not prohibited from facilitating hedge funds by these restrictions. The main diffe...

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Das Ziel dieser Diplomarbeit ist es dem Leser die Funktionsweise der sehr unterschiedlichen Hedge Fund Strategien und die damit verbundenen Risiken aufzuzeigen. Darüber hinaus wird die Performance der einzelnen Strategien näher analysiert. Viele Veröffentlichungen zum Thema Hedge Funds zeigen die Vorteile und Chancen, vernachlässigen dabei aber die Risiken, die Hedge Fund Strategien in sich bergen. Dadurch kann leicht der Eindruck entstehen, dass es sich bei Hedge Funds um ein risikoloses Investment mit überragender Performance handelt. Dies ist in der Realität allerdings, wie der Fall LTCM zeigte, nicht immer der Fall. Es ist daher für potentielle Investoren in Hedge Funds unerlässlich sich mit den Risiken auseinander zusetzen. Im Gegensatz zu Risiken von Aktien und Anleihen weisen Hedge Funds sehr spezifische Risikofaktoren auf. Diese resultieren aus den von Hedge Funds eingesetzten Instrumenten, wie z.B. Leerverkäufen oder Leverage, und der Strategie des Hedge Funds. Berücksichtigt ein Investor bei der Auswahl eines Hedge Funds auch dessen Strategie und die Risiken dieser Strategie, kann er das Chancen/Risiko-Profil seines Portfolio steuern und optimieren. Zur Einführung und zum besseren Verständnis der Thematik wird im ersten Teil der Arbeit Grundwissen über Hedge Funds vermittelt. Es wird der Begriff Hedge Funds definiert und die allgemeinen Merkmale von Hedge Funds näher erläutert. Die geschichtliche Entwicklung und die Marktstruktur der Hedge ...

A detailed, step-by-step book covering the entire hedge fund evaluation process Investing in hedge funds is different from investing in other asset classes. There is much less publicly available information about hedge funds performance than there is about mutual funds or individual stocks. Consequently, investing in this class requires more sophisticated investment knowledge, greater due diligence, and, in many cases, a better-developed ability to evaluate investment managers. Hedge Fund Analysis provides a broad framework of how to approach this endeavor, from initial screening to analytical techniques, interviewing skills, and legal and contract negotiations. Along the way, it demonstrates a variety of mechanisms for monitoring and tracking hedge funds and the underlying hedge fund portfolios—explaining each stage of the process in minute detail and providing specific examples which fully explain the opportunities and challenges you'll face each step of the way. Provides a detailed look at how to source hedge funds, screen through them, and rank their strengths and weaknesses Lays out a thorough process for evaluating funds, from initial interviews to performance analysis to onsite meetings Reveals what questions to ask by strategy in order to understand the underlying risk factors associated with each Highlights non-investment analysis, including operational due diligence and risk management, as integral elements in the process Written by a financial professional with over twenty years of experience conducting investment manager due diligence, this book will put you in a position to make more informed decisions when investing in hedge funds.

Christoph Schneider How Useful is the Information Ratio to Evaluate the Performance of Portfolio Managers.

9239 руб.
The idea of comparing the performance of different risky investments, for example investment funds, on a quantitative basis dates back to the beginnings of the asset management industry and has been an important field of research in finance since then. Performance measures serve as valuable quantitative evidence for the portfolio manager's performance as well as for the evaluation of investment decisions ex post. Based on the idea of the capital asset pricing model proposed by Treynor, Sharpe and Lintner, Treynor developed the first quantitative performance measure intended to rate mutual funds, the Treynor Ratio. Since then, a large number of performance measures with very different characteristics have been developed. In addition to their power of rating investments ex post, their ability to predict future performance has been thoroughly analyzed by Grinblatt & Titman, Brown & Goetzmann, Carhart and others. Besides academia, the driving force behind the development of more sophisticated performance measures has always been the investors. This is understandable, as "the truly poor managers are afraid, the unlucky managers will be unjustly condemned, and the new managers have no track record. Only the skilled (or lucky) managers are enthusiastic".By combining and applying the results of previous research to a new sample of nearly 10,000 mutual funds that invest in different countries and asset classes, this thesis clarifies its central research question: I...

Jan Harkopf Investment Criteria for Mutual Fund Selection

5464 руб.
The importance of mutual funds for individual investors has increased in recent decades. This becomes apparent when looking at the increased share of households owning mutual funds. These mutual fund investors usually want to receive a return which is above or at least close to the mutual fund's benchmark. Consequently, investors want to invest in those funds which will show these patterns in the future. Some of these mutual funds receive much attention, since they generate extraordinary high performance. But the question that remains is whether it is possible to predict such performance before funds exhibit such outstanding performance.In the past, mutual fund investors focused extensively on performance or performance linked patterns, like the Morningstar star rating, and thus chased past performance. This seems surprising since performance persists only over a short time and is more persistent to weak mutual funds (1 and 2 star rated) than well performing mutual funds. Thus, chasing past performances seems to be a rather inferior strategy. Therefore, investors should try to identify alternative tools showing a high correlation to future mutual fund performance.In this book, mutual funds are analysed, especially open-end mutual funds and actively managed mutual funds. The main focus is on what purpose and usefulness active investments have and whether performance is persistent and what the determinants of mutual fund flows are. Moreover, some alternative measures will b...

Helpful, Accessible Guidance for Budding Hedge Funds 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 book 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—all highly educated and well trained—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 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 Recognize the patterns of successful start-ups The industry is approaching a significant crossroads. Aggregate growth is slowing and competition is shifting away from industry-wide growth, at the expense of traditional asset classes, to market share capture within the industry. So You Want to Start a Hedge Fund provides guidance for the little funds—the potential future leaders of the industry.

During the last 15 years the hedge fund industry has become one of the most creative and rapid growing areas within the financial industry and has made it hard for regulators to mitigate the potential risks posed to investors and the financial system.In light of the financial crisis, international interest in the supervision and regulation of the financial industry has increased rapidly, particularly with regard to hedge funds and there is no doubt that international and European initiatives will influence hedge fund operations in European and German law.The aim of this thesis is to introduce the reader from a legal perspective to the general characteristics of hedge funds as well as the existing and expected legal schemes for the operations of hedge funds in European and German law. The thesis explains the characteristics of hedge fund schemes by describing their origin and terms of hedge funds used.

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: A (German Grade: 1,0), European Business School - International University Schloß Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel (Union Investment Chair of Asset Management), language: English, abstract: The idea of comparing the performance of different risky investments, for example investment funds, on a quantitative basis dates back to the beginnings of the asset management industry and has been an important field of research in finance since then. Performance measures serve as valuable quantitative evidence for the portfolio manager's performance as well as for the evaluation of investment decisions ex post. Based on the idea of the capital asset pricing model proposed by Treynor (1961), Sharpe (1964), and Lintner (1965), Treynor (1965) developed the first quantitative performance measure intended to rate mutual funds, the Treynor Ratio. Since then, a large number of performance measures with very different characteristics have been developed, for example by Sharpe (1966), Jensen (1968), Treynor & Black (1973), Sortino & Price (1994), and Israelsen (2005). In addition to their power of rating investments ex post, their ability to predict future performance has been thoroughly analyzed by Grinblatt & Titman (1992), Brown & Goetzmann (1995), Carhart (1997), and others. Besides academia, the driving force behind the development of more sophisticated performance mea...

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 2,0, Berlin School of Economics and Law, language: English, abstract: Over the past decades the architecture of the financial system has undergone a significant change, whereby the alternative investment industry has claimed an ever increasing importance and popularity. Hedge funds have taken the leading role in this development. From a handful of hedge fund managers in the United States (U.S.), hedge funds have been growing to a worldwide business at the forefront of sophisticated financial innovation. Despite their rising success in the alternative investment industry, only a few subjects in the financial world appear to create such diverse opinions as hedge funds do. On the one hand, there are policy makers and academics, which appreciate and highlight hedge funds' main role in increasing profits and effectively diversifying risks in traditional portfolios. Moreover, Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the Federal Reserve System (Fed), stated that hedge funds "have become major contributors to the flexibility of the financial system." Provided with flexibility and light regulatory oversight, their participation in various markets has been proven important. Especially, due to the provision of liquidity, financial markets have become more efficient but also resilient by absorbing many financial shocks in past years, including the most recent financial crisis. On the other hand, t...

Socially responsible investing (SRI) is an investment approach that combines investors' financial as well as nonfinancial goals in the security selection process. Technically, investors can engage in SRI either by directly investing in companies that implement corporate social activities or by investing their money in SRI funds, which apply screening criteria to select securities. The screening process applied by the SRI funds has led to controversy among academics regarding whether the use of SRI screens in the security selection process influences the financial performance of the funds.The empirical study analyzes whether or not the screening process applied by such funds influences their financial performance. Previous research mostly has focused on analyzing the performance of SRI equity funds established in the United States. The study at hand not only includes SRI equity funds, but also SRI balanced and fixed income funds established in Europe, the biggest market for SRI globally.The study provides unexpected results that are not only of interest for investors, who want to get a better understanding of the effect on the financial performance of their portfolios in case SRI funds are added. The results are also relevant for SRI fund managers, who are interested in promoting their funds and attracting (new) investors, and for academics, whose research interests are e. g., located in the fields of SRI, fund portfolio performances and market efficiencies.

Hedge Funds haben in den letzten Jahren viel Aufmerksamkeit erfahren, sei es durch die hohen erzielten Renditen, die eindrucksvollen Gehälter der Manager oder die milliardenschwere Pleite des mit zwei Nobelpreisträgern der Wirtschaftswissenschaften besetzen Hedge Funds LTCM im Jahre 1998. Bis dahin waren Hedge Funds als Profiteure des Aufspürens von Marktineffizienten mittels hochkomplexer Methoden bekannt, die sich im Zeitverlauf wieder korrigieren sollten. Dieser gewissermaßen passiven Strategie stehen aktivistische Investoren als rege Einfluss nehmende Aktionäre entgegen. In den Medien werden aktivistische Hedge Funds als die "New Raider" dargestellt, in Anspielung an die sog. Corporate Raider. Im Amerika der 80er Jahre hatten diese, angeführt von Carl Icahn, den zweifelhaften Ruhm durch das Attackieren von unterbewerteten Unternehmen erlangt. Aktivistische Hedge Funds der Neuzeit haben wenig mit diesen gemein. Unter der Nutzung moderner Finanzinstrumente kaufen sie über den Kapitalmarkt Minderheitsbeteiligungen an vermeintlich unterbewerteten Unternehmen. In der Folge fordern sie unter anderem weit reichende Änderungen der Unternehmensstrategie und drohen ihre Aktionärsrechte mit aller Kraft durchzusetzen. Wenngleich der Anteil der aktivistischen Hedge Funds am gesamten Hedge Fund-Universum eher gering ist, sorgen sie in ihrer Rolle nicht nur für mediales Aufsehen. In Deutschland sind aktivistische Hedge Funds erstmals durch den Fall der Deutschen Börse AG einer b...

This study posits that the two most viable options available to regulatory bodies to ensure effective implementation of these changes are (i) to either further restrict access to hedge funds and thereby curb their 'retailization' and/or (ii) to introduce rigorous levels of disclosure on the part of hedge funds and their intermediaries. It is the objective of this study to establish that for either of these options to be attained, tangible improvement in both the quantity and quality of information disclosure from hedge funds and their intermediaries about their positions, strategies and exposures in a manner that would enable them to continue to provide the market efficiency-enhancing services that they currently offer.

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Bank, Börse, Versicherung, Note: 1,0 , Universität Liechtenstein, früher Hochschule Liechtenstein (Hochschule Liechtenstein, Vaduz), 51 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Hedge Funds gelten auch als die Königsklasse der Kapitalanlage. Über kaum eine andere Form der Kapitalanlage wird in der Presse so kontrovers diskutiert wie über Hedge Funds. Für die einen stellen sie die Investitionsmöglichkeit schlecht hin dar, die unabhängig von Marktschwankungen beachtliche Überrenditen erzielen können. Für die anderen sind sie Teufelszeug, welche das Weltfinanzsystem gefährden. Kein Wunder also, dass sich immer mehr Anleger und Kundenberater mit dieser Anlageklasse beschäftigen und darin, nach einer vierjährigen Aktienhausse, eine echte Anlagealternative sehen.Mit der vorliegenden Arbeit sollen zum einen die Grundstrukturen von Hedge Funds beleuchtet werden, um so dem interessierten Leser einen Überblick über die unterschiedlichsten Anlagetechniken von Hedge Funds zu geben. Im folgenden sollen die vermeintlichen Vorteile von Hedge Funds gegenüber traditionellen Anlagen kritisch beleuchtet werden. In Kapitel vier sollen dem potenziellen Investor weitere Hemmnisse aufgezeigt werden, mit denen er sich vor einer Investition in Hedge Funds auseinandersetzen sollte.

Managed funds offer investors with relatively small sums of money the opportunity to access a range of investments across a spectrum of asset classes. For savers they can offer a greater return than funds held at call with a bank; for busy or inexperienced investors they can be a safer alternative to direct investing; for retirees with superannuation rollovers or other lump sums they can offer capital growth or an income stream, or both! Margaret Lomas explains the ins and outs of investing in managed funds in her trademark easy-to-understand style. She discusses all aspects of investing in managed funds, including: Types of funds, how they are structured and regulated How returns are made and measuring fund performance When to use financial planners Matching a managed fund to your investor profile Maintaining a balanced portfolio using managed funds.

With recent outbreaks of multiple large-scale financial crises, amplified by interconnected risk sources, a new paradigm of fund management has emerged. This new paradigm leverages “embedded” quantitative processes and methods to provide more transparent, adaptive, reliable and easily implemented “risk assessment-based” practices. This book surveys the most widely used factor models employed within the field of financial asset pricing. Through the concrete application of evaluating risks in the hedge fund industry, the authors demonstrate that signal processing techniques are an interesting alternative to the selection of factors (both fundamentals and statistical factors) and can provide more efficient estimation procedures, based on lq regularized Kalman filtering for instance. With numerous illustrative examples from stock markets, this book meets the needs of both finance practitioners and graduate students in science, econometrics and finance. Contents Foreword, Rama Cont. 1. Factor Models and General Definition. 2. Factor Selection. 3.

The dismal truth about hedge funds and how investors can get a greater share of the profits Shocking but true: if all the money that's ever been invested in hedge funds had been in treasury bills, the results would have been twice as good. Although hedge fund managers have earned some great fortunes, investors as a group have done quite poorly, particularly in recent years. Plagued by high fees, complex legal structures, poor disclosure, and return chasing, investors confront surprisingly meager results. Drawing on an insider's view of industry growth during the 1990s, a time when hedge fund investors did well in part because there were relatively few of them, The Hedge Fund Mirage chronicles the early days of hedge fund investing before institutions got into the game and goes on to describe the seeding business, a specialized area in which investors provide venture capital-type funding to promising but undiscovered hedge funds. Today's investors need to do better, and this book highlights the many subtle and not-so-subtle ways that the returns and risks are biased in favor of the hedge fund manager, and how investors and allocators can redress the imbalance. The surprising frequency of fraud, highlighted with several examples that the author was able to avoid through solid due diligence, industry contacts, and some luck Why new and emerging hedge fund managers are where generally better returns are to be found, because most capital invested is steered towards apparently safer but less profitable large, established funds rather than smaller managers that evoke the more profitable 1990s Hedge fund investors have had it hard in recent years, but The Hedge Fund Mirage is here to change that, by turning the tables on conventional wisdom and putting the hedge fund investor back on top.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Jeder, der sich mit Börsen auseinandersetzt, hört sehr bald von Hedge Funds. Sie sind die Angstgegner der Notenbanken, der Schrecken kleiner Volkswirtschaften und der Inbegriff der skrupellosen Spekulation. Gleichzeitig sind sie mächtige Marktteilnehmer, deren bloße Ankündigung einer Trendwende dieselbe herbeiführen kann. Genau das war der Wissenstand zu Beginn der neunziger Jahre. Mehr Informationen waren damals kaum zu erhalten. Mittlerweile gewinnen Hedge Funds immer mehr an Popularität. Es gibt kaum eine Finanzpublikation, die in letzter Zeit nicht über diese Anlagekategorie ausführlich berichtet hat. Anfang 1998 waren sie als Anlagekategorie mit hervorragender Performance langsam auf den Radarschirm vieler Investoren gekommen, die Alternativen zu Aktien- und Bondanlagen suchten. Trotz steuerlicher Schwierigkeiten gab es erste institutionelle Investoren, die Anlagen in einzelne Hedge Funds und diversifizierte Portfolios machten. Durch das LTCM Debakel im Herbst 1998 sind Hedge Funds wieder als spekulative Anlage in Verruf geraten. Trotz negativer Schlagzeilen und eines grundsätzlichen Image-Problems ist in Europa ein regelrechtes Gründerfieber ausgebrochen. Das anhaltende Interesse hat gute Gründe. Gerade in einem schwierigen Anlageumfeld, in dem traditionelle Anlagen eher bescheidene Renditen erwarten lassen, finden Hedge Fund Manager beste Voraussetzungen, ihr hoch spezialisiertes Können in eine den Markt übertreffende Performance umzusetzen.

However, all major studies concerning this topic deal with long-term scenarios, the stock's price performance is measured for a time period of at least three quarters. Due to the fact that there are many investors, especially institutional investors such as hedge funds that trade stocks much more frequently, the existing studies are not relevant for them.This paper studies stock price reactions around quarterly earnings announcements for companies listed in Deutscher Aktienindex (DAX) or Midcap DAX (MDAX) with respect to changes of the company's full-year outlook and of earnings surprise regarding analyst consensus forecast within ten days before and after the announcement date.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1.3, University of Frankfurt (Main), language: English, abstract: This bachelor thesis investigates different determinants for absolute and relative fund flows in socially responsible investment (SRI) funds and conventional funds on the German Market. My multivariate analyses study the flow performance relationship, but also incorporate persistence in flows, expenses and typical fund characteristics such as age, total net assets and number of share classes. I find a high dependency of flows on prior returns from funds known as a return chasing behaviour. My model shows different flow-performance relations depending on the kind of sustainability fund and how the perception of investors changed over time towards being more sensitive regarding SRI criteria. Most importantly there exists a strong momentum effect for funds shown with persistent flows in Germany over different periods of time.

The ultimate guide to dealing with hedge fund risk in a post-Great Recession world Hedge funds have been faced with a variety of new challenges as a result of the ongoing financial crisis. The simultaneous collapse of major financial institutions that were their trading counterparties and service providers, fundamental and systemic increases in market volatility and illiquidity, and unrelenting demands from investors to redeem their hedge fund investments have conspired to make the climate for hedge funds extremely uncomfortable.

Advising hedge fund managers and CFOs on how to manage the risk of their investment strategies and structure relationships to best insulate their firms and investors from the failures of financial counterparties, the book looks in detail at the various methodologies for managing hedge fund market, credit, and operational risks depending on the hedge fund's investment strategy.

With recent outbreaks of multiple large-scale financial crises, amplified by interconnected risk sources, a new paradigm of fund management has emerged. This new paradigm leverages “embedded” quantitative processes and methods to provide more transparent, adaptive, reliable and easily implemented “risk assessment-based” practices. This book surveys the most widely used factor models employed within the field of financial asset pricing. Through the concrete application of evaluating risks in the hedge fund industry, the authors demonstrate that signal processing techniques are an interesting alternative to the selection of factors (both fundamentals and statistical factors) and can provide more efficient estimation procedures, based on lq regularized Kalman filtering for instance. With numerous illustrative examples from stock markets, this book meets the needs of both finance practitioners and graduate students in science, econometrics and finance.
