I am obviously thrilled with their conclusions and recommendations, and believe they are supportive of continued innovation and the further development of the hedge ... market research, surveys and trends

The bipartisan group tasked with figuring out how our economy melted down called on executives from AIG, Goldman Sachs, scholars, and regulators to help explain what the heck a derivative is and why they played a role in the collapse of our economy. If you have ever wondered what the notional value of over-the-counter derivatives were in 2008, the answer is $684 trillion. That’s trillion with a “t”. According to the chairman of the commission, that’s ten times the GDP of all nations. David examines all this ... market research, surveys and trends

The preference for liquid funds is also squeezing returns as more assets and a growing number of managers try to capture alpha, or outperformance, from a finite number of suitable asset classes. Hedge fund companies are making efforts to meet investors' liquidity needs, with many launching funds regulated under the European Union's Ucits III regime which imposes strict liquidity requirements and clear pricing of assets, and limits leverage. market trends, news research and surveys resources
