Wall Street Reform Bill Issues – Performance of State Securities ...
more groups are highlighting the fact that state securities divisions are going to be affected by the act.  After pressure from NASAA, the association of state securities regulators, Congress has provided that state regulators will be required to provide oversight of investment advisers with up to $100 million of AUM – a significant increase from the current level of $30 million of AUM.  Of course this will increase the number of advisers that the states oversee and will make the job of the securities divisions much more difficult.  We have consistently stated that we do not think the states, collectively, are going to be ... market research, surveys and trends
AllAboutAlpha: Hedge Fund Trends & Alternative Investment Analysis ...
There are those who prefer getting from A to B in a slow, leisurely way – playing it safe and taking in the scenery with the comfort of knowing they are in no rush to get where they need and want to go. And then there are others who prefer to get there as fast as they possibly can by the quickest and most aggressive way possible – be damned the scenery and certainly any potential dangers of going well beyond the speed limit. The latter is what the majority thinks of leverage and hedge funds’ use of it. And for good reason: The financial crisis did a lot of damage, but it packed a particularly heavy punch for hedge funds whose ... market research, surveys and trends

Hedge Funds: The Next Big Headache for Obama?
between two Wall Street regulation bills, one passed by the House and one by the Senate, aiming to have a final bill over to President Obama before he attends the G-20 summit in Toronto this weekend. As they clamp down on consumer protections and proprietary trading, however, there’s one corner of the financial world with which they might want to use a light touch. According to Sebastian Mallaby, author of More Money Than God: Hedge Funds and the Making of a New Elite , hedge funds are the best risk managers around, meaning as Congress squeezes out risky behaviors from the big financial conglomerates, we would all be best served ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Massachusetts public retirement systems may consider “hedge funds” as a way to achieve additional diversification in their portfolios. The term “hedge funds” generally refers to unregulated investment products that seek absolute returns through the use of specialized investment strategies that are expected to have low correlation to the major financial markets. Products that involve strategies basically similar to those of traditional active management approaches will not be approved. Retirement systems seeking to invest in hedge funds should incorporate this sector into their long-term asset ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

WikiAnswers - What does it take to start up a hedge fund
It takes a team, a marketing plan, seed capital, and operating capital. It takes a lot of capital and most hedge funds never grow into long-term viable businesses. Personally I believe that there will be hundreds of new hedge funds started every year for the next 7-10 years. Institutions are by and large increasing their allocations to these products and the surveys of the ultra-wealthy and high net worth financial advisers show a strong sense of confidence in increasingly using alternative assets within their portfolios.
