Reviews for “Top Hedge Fund Investors”

Posted in Uncategorized by Cathleen Rittereiser on July 22, 2010

Two leading hedge fund industry news and research websites have written articles about Top Hedge Fund Investors: Stories, Strategies and Advice.

Christopher Holt, concluding his AllAboutAlpha.com article, said

We’ve seen the advance copy and it’s well worth the read. Rittereiser and Kochard have essentially distilled the essence of what drives some of the alternative investment industry’s most influential leaders. They have coaxed these luminaries into revealing not only their investing strategies and outlooks, but also the personality traits and life experiences that make them tick. The result is a must-read for anyone looking for an edge in, or considering a career in, the alternative investment sector.

AllAboutAlpha.com offers readers a free download of Chapter 7, the story of asymmetrical talent Mark Anson, CIO of Oak Hill Investments.

Opalesque.com offered readers an exclusive first look in an article about the book’s underlying message about transparency and communication.

New to this market is “Top Hedge Fund Investors: Stories, Strategies, and Advice” by Cathleen M. Rittereiser and Lawrence E. Kochard, PhD, CFA, an in-depth look at hedge fund investing that provides readers with a noteworthy dose of transparency into the fund of hedge funds industry.

The pair managed to secure from these hedge fund investors information on everything from manager sourcing to evaluating performance and risk to redemption triggers (in fact the only thing it seems the managers interviewed do not detail is the actual “secret sauce” models they use). The level of information is noteworthy, and I’m not sure such transparency of fund of hedge funds investing techniques would have been a feasible project prior to 2010.

Opalesque is a subscription-only website, but News Editor and the article’s author, Kirsten Bischoff, provided a copy for Top Investors readers to download. Opalesque Exclusive ‘Top Hedge Fund Investors’ Highlight the Importance of Communication
