Mean Street: Fortress, Blackstone — 'Alternative' Asset Management ...

You may say that this is widely understood by investors. Witness the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Amaranth's $6.6 Billion Slide Began With Trader's Bid to Quit ...

Since Amaranth's sudden collapse, investors have questioned the unusual trust Maounis put in his star trader, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

For the year to date, the average hedge fund lost 1.45 percent, according to data released by Hennessee Group LLC on Thursday. But compared with the 7.6 percent decline in the Standard & Poor's 500 index, the lackluster performance of the $1.6 trillion hedge fund industry doesn't seem so shabby. Still, wealthy investors, pension funds and university endowments have come to expect hedge ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
