Market Neutral
The year was 1999. Bill Clinton was in the White House, Ricky Martin was on the radio, and Kathryn McDonald was in Orinda, Calif. learning to hate the term "irrational exuberance." "That was a pretty difficult time," recalls McDonald, then a senior analyst with AXA Rosenberg Funds. As one of the first to offer a "market neutral" mutual fund to investors under the $1 million net worth threshold, McDonald's company couldn't have been more out of sync with the times. In a year that saw the S&P 500 gain 13 percent, Barr Rosenberg Market Neutral Fund (BRMIX), the company's conservative, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Derivatives Strategy - July/August'96: Moving Alpha
Alpha­the outperformance from manager skill­is hard to find. So when you've got it in one asset class, why not move it where you want? By Miriam Bensman A litany of troubles pushed Don Nesbitt, director of investments at the $14 billion Teachers' Retirement System of the State of Illinois, to engage in a bit of radical thinking. The plan's $1.67 billion international equity portfolio wasn't performing well enough. It was expensive to run, took up too much of his time in manager searches and, worst, it wasn't making good enough returns. So Nesbitt tried a bold experiment with a small ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Why clients need a full-service agency
Chris Freeland, managing director at digital and direct agency Tullo Marshall Warren, argues that a full-service agency can become a trusted strategic partner of a client rather than just a supplier. Life used to be so simple when agencies knew their place! Ad agencies tended to rule the roost within the client hierarchy and concepts would trickle down to the other specialists - direct marketing agency, sales promotion agency, digital agency and PR agency - who would then adapt and implement the campaign using their own specialist media. But does this model still work for clients in today’s increasingly fragmented world? Well, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Market Neutral Funds
t's hard to remain neutral about market-neutral investing strategies, the latest fad to emerge in the mutual-fund industry. "It's an exciting opportunity for fund investors," gushes Gerard Breitner, president of Manhattan's ExComp Asset Management, an investment adviser. Simply put, market-neutral funds aim to deliver above-market returns with lower risk by hedging bullish stock picks with an equivalent, but diversified, number of bearish, or short, bets. Some income is also generated from the interest earned by placing the cash proceeds of the short sales in a money-market account. But, make no mistake, ...

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Can anyone explain to me, in layperson's terms, what a hedge fund is?
The first hedge fund was created by A.W. Jones in 1949 and had a strategy that today would be termed "equity market-neutral"; the fund bought stocks it expected to outperform and shorted stocks it expected to underperform.  In other words, the fund hedged away its market risk (hence, the term "hedge fund").  The fund was structured as a limited partnership, was available only to accredited investors (high net worth individuals and institutions), and was compensated strictly through performance fees (20% of total return delivered to investors). Over time, other funds developed other strategies (many of which actually do ...
