NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Hedge funds enjoy a certain glamour that the humble mutual fund lacks, including wealthy investors, the promise of outsized returns and billionaire money managers. Now this rarefied club is open to individual investors, and many are eagerly signing up. The number of mutual funds attempting to replicate hedge fund strategies has risen dramatically, with 80% of today's long-short funds launched in just the past few years. The funds have come from both mutual fund firms branching into a new area and hedge fund managers making their strategies available in mutual fund formats. In the aftermath of the ...

The Tremors From a Coding Error - DealBook Blog -
Investing is always an act of faith, but perhaps never more so than when you entrust your money to a quant fund, Jeff Sommer writes in his latest column in The New York Times. Quantitative funds, after all, are the “black boxes” of investing — portfolios run by managers who generally try to generate profit with computer algorithms that they don’t share with outsiders, or even their own investors. When you put your money into one of them, you are trusting not only that the overall strategy is sound, but also that its algorithms make sense and, furthermore, that they have been translated properly into computer code. But quants are ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
keep your cool in a scary market
(Money Magazine) -- You knew it couldn't go on forever. And deep down, the spectacular run-up in stocks that began when the bear market bottomed in March 2009 was actually making you a little nervous. An 80% surge in just 13 months was starting to feel a lot like bubble territory. So yes, a breather was probably in order. But another full-blown financial crisis? One that would hammer stock markets around the globe? You were hardly expecting that; few people were. Spiraling debt troubles in Greece, Portugal, Italy, Ireland, and Spain kicked off the chaos. Worries about a sharp economic slowdown in China and anemic job growth ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
DEBT CRISIS: Safe distance
The European sovereign debt crisis threatens to stall recovery in some British banks, prompting investors to seek value elsewhere in the financials sector, including institutions with exposure to Asia, writes Abigail Montrose. Eighteen months ago the British banking sector was in crisis. Awash with bad debts, credit markets had dried up and only government intervention saved the banking system from collapse. An improvement in the global economy, greater liquidity in the markets and a return to profitability has meant that British banks operate in a different environment. But fresh challenges threaten their recovery. The European ... 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, ...
