What is the daily life of a hedge fund manager like?
 
03:43
What is the daily life of a hedge fund manager like? Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and independent traders comments. It depends on the kind of trading you do. For systematic trading (and that means fully automated machines) it was ensuring that the machines were executing the orders they were supposed to execute. Then it was about finding time to improve the system, client meetings, filling due diligence forms and then meetings with lawyers and administrators. At the end its a job! What would be your advice for someone who is looking to break into the hedge fund world?

What Do Hedge Funds Think of Technical Analysis?
 
06:02
What do hedge funds think of technical analysis? Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and independent traders comments. Do you need to be good at maths to make money trading? Why aren't economists wealthy / successful investors? Or are they? Some of them love it and some of them hate it. It also depends what you mean by technical analysis. If technical analysis means optically looking at charts and looking for patterns like head and shoulders..etc it becomes very difficult to test. If something cannot be written down in a set of rules, then it is not useful. Others will argue that technical analysis is more of an art than a science. Knowing maths doesn't necessarily make you smart.

What's a hedge fund?
 
02:02
There's a lot of confusion about what a hedge fund actually is these days. Here's a short and basic explainer. I should add that's its not entirely correct to say that hedge funds are completely unregulated. They are subject to some rules, but they are much less regulated than most other investment types.

H is for Hedge Funds - The Elite Investor Club's A - Z of Investing
 
04:54
To join the Elite Investor Club, follow this link - http://www.eliteinvestorclub.com/ The letter H in our investor’s alphabet covers one of the most mysterious areas of all. Where fortunes have been made, mainly by the managers, and where eye watering fees in return for mediocre performance have become the norm. H is for Hedge Funds. They are often thought of as an invention of the ‘greed is good’ nineteen eighties, but they actually date back to nineteen forty nine. There’s a clue to how they operate in their name – they seek to hedge their bets in order to ensure god returns in any market conditions. So they might have a long-short strategy, where they buy shares in a company hoping they’ll go up but at the same time go short on the stock meaning they make money if the price goes down. Hedge funds also make extensive use of derivative products like futures and options. It’s all about leverage, so for a small outlay you can get control over a significant volume of assets. Equally, they lend money over and above investors funds to further amplify the results of their chosen strategy. Of course, as anyone who’s opened a spread betting account knows, leverage works in two directions. If your hunch is right, your returns relative to the amount you’ve invested are spectacular. And if you get it wrong, the losses can be tragic. Indeed, unsophisticated investors can leave themselves exposed to unlimited losses if they set things up the wrong way. Hedge funds employ some very clever people with brains the size of the planet called Quants to analyse the best strategies to game the market. They’re kept in darkened rooms, food is passed under the door and they are never allowed to see the sunlight or to meet clients. There are scores of different strategies including long/short, arbitrage, event driven, And still they can get it horribly wrong, as we learned in nineteen ninety eight with the collapse of Long Term Asset Management when their sophisticated models failed to cope with the impact of crises in Asia and Russia. Hedge fund managers have become some of the wealthiest people on the planet, mainly as a result of their success fees which start at twenty per cent of the gains they achieve for clients. If you have a billion pounds under management you’ll receive maybe two per cent as a management fee, that’s twenty million quid for starters. Let’s say you achieve a fifteen per cent return, a twenty per cent success fee means you trouser another thirty million making fifty million for the year. That should buy a few hundred acres of gentleman’s farm in the Scottish highlands. We’ve talked before about the discrepancy between the best and the worst fund managers, reaching a conclusion that for many investors they are better off in a tracker fund or an ETF. In the world of hedge funds, the differences are even more stark. According to Zerohedge, ninety per cent of big name hedge funds have failed to beat the performance of the S and P five hundred in recent years. In twenty fourteen the best performer gave a return of twenty two per cent, the second best a return of fourteen per cent. Good, but not great given the risk profile and volatility that go with hedge fund investing. Many made double digit losses, often after making solid gains the year before. Some of twenty fourteen’s worst performers are topping the tables in twenty fifteen, reinforcing the volatility of hedge funds as an asset class. My own view is that there are a tiny number of hedge funds worth investing in if you are a high net worth or sophisticated investor and you take the time to do some serious research. For the vast majority of people watching this video, I urge you to make use of my favourite investment tool – the ten footy barge pole.

This panel brings together leading founders of hedge funds and asset managers for a conversation about the evolution of the industry. Some of the questions that will be addressed: With more hedge funds than ever before, how can a manager generate meaningful returns? Are fee structures likely to change significantly with increasing pressure from institutional clients? In this highly personality-driven business, how does the role of a founder change as a fund grows -- and can a fund succeed the person who created it? Moderator Ilana D.

Why James Cordier Hedge Fund Blew Up

In this lesson we look discuss what went wrong with James Cordier's hedge fund strategy. According to the public he started with naked calls and tried to hedge them with naked puts, forming a short strangle options strategy. It's an interesting discussion on price to volatility correlations. We see why the short calls hedged with short puts was not a good match for natural gas when we analyze the relationship of price to IV for the product he was trading. In this case it would have been better to design a trade long vega to the upside and short vega to the downside since the price action to IV action has a positive correlation in regards to natural gas.

83. How Banks, Hedge Funds, and Corporations Move Currencies
 
05:41
Practice trading with a free demo trading account: http://bit.ly/IT-forex-demo3 View full lesson: http://www.informedtrades.com/21041-forex-market-participants.html Behind central banks in terms of size and ability to move the foreign exchange market are the banks which we learned about in our previous lessons which make up the Interbank market. It is important to understand here that in addition to executing trades on behalf of their clients, the bank's traders often times try to earn additional profits by taking speculative positions in the market as well. While most of the other players we are going to discuss in this lesson do not have the size and clout to move the market in their favor, many of these bank traders are an exception to this rule and can leverage their huge buying power and inside knowledge of client order flow to move the market in their favor. This is why you hear about quick market jumps in the foreign exchange market being attributed to the clearing out the stops in the market or protecting an option level, things which we will learn more about in later lessons. The next level of participants is the large hedge funds who trade in the foreign exchange market for speculative purposes to try and generate alpha, or a return for their investors that is over and above the average market return. Most forex hedge funds are trend following, meaning they tend to build into longer term positions over time to try and profit from a longer term uptrend or downtrend in the market. These funds are one of the reasons that currencies often times develop nice longer term trends, something that can be of benefit to the individual position trader. Although not the typical way that Hedge funds profit from the market, probably the most famous example of a hedge fund trading foreign exchange is the example of George Soros' Quantum fund who made a very large amount of money betting against the Bank of England. In short, the Bank of England had tried to fix the exchange rate of the British Pound at a particular level buy buying British Pounds, even though market forces were trying to push the value of the Pound Down. Soros felt that this was a losing battle and essentially bet the entire value of his $1 Billion hedge fund that the value of the pound would decrease. The market forces which were already at play, combined with Soro's huge position against the Bank of England, caused so much selling pressure on the pound that the Bank of England had to give up trying to prop up the currency and it preceded to fall over 5% in one day. This is a gigantic move for a major currency, and a move which netted Soros' Quantum Fund over $1 Billion in profits in one day. Next in line are multinational corporations who are forced to be participants in the forex market because of their overseas earnings which are often converted back into US Dollars or other currencies depending on where the company is headquartered. As the value of the currency in which the overseas revenue was earned can rise or fall before that conversion, the company is exposed to potential losses and/or gains in revenue which have nothing to do with their business. To remove this exchange rate uncertainty many multinational corporations will hedge this risk by taking positions in the forex market which negate any exchange rate fluctuation on their overseas revenues. Secondly these corporations also buy other corporations overseas, something which is known as cross boarder mergers and acquisitions. As the transaction for the company being bought or sold is done in that company's home country and currency, this can drive the value of a currency up as demand is created for the currency to buy the company or down as supply is created when the company is sold. Lastly are individuals such as you and I who participate in the forex market in three main areas. 1. As Investors Seeking Yield: Although not very popular in the United States, overseas and particularly in Japan where interest rates have been close to zero for many years, individuals will buy the currencies or other assets of a country with a higher interest rate in order to earn a higher rate of return on their money. This is also referred to as a carry trade, something that we will learn more about in later lessons. 2. As Travelers: Obviously when traveling to a country which has a different currency individual travelers must exchange their home currency for the currency of the country where they are traveling. 3. Individual speculators who actively trade currencies trying to profit from the fluctuation of one currency against another. This is as we discussed in our last lesson a relatively new phenomenon but most likely the reason why you are watching this video and therefore a growing one.

Investopedia Video: Private Equity Fundamentals
 
02:11
Private equity refers to company ownership by a specialized investment firm. Typically, a private equity firm will establish a fund and use it to buy multiple businesses, with the goal of selling each one within a few years at a profit. Private equity firms will often target an underperforming business and, after purchasing the company, use their management expertise to improve profitability.

THE BEST STOCK TIPS FROM HEDGE FUND MANAGER PETER LYNCH
 
51:22
Often described as a "chameleon," Peter Lynch adapted to whatever investment style worked at the time. It is said that his work schedule, the equivalent of what we would call today "24/7," did not have a beginning and an end. He talked to company executives, investment managers, industry experts and analysts around the clock. Apart from this punishing work ethic, Lynch did consistently apply a set of eight fundamental principles to his stock selection process. According to an article by Kaushal Majmudar, a CFA at The Ridgewood Group, Lynch shares his checklist with the audience at an investment conference in New York in 2005: Know what you own. It's futile to predict the economy and interest rates. You have plenty of time to identify and recognize exceptional companies. Avoid long shots. Good management is very important - buy good businesses. Be flexible and humble, and learn from mistakes. Before you make a purchase, you should be able to explain why you're buying. There's always something to worry about. In picking stocks (good companies), Peter Lynch stuck to what he knew and/or could easily understand. That was a core position for him. He also dedicated himself to a level of due diligence and stock research that left few stones unturned. He shut out market noise and concentrated on a company's fundamentals, using a bottom-up approach. He only invested for the long run and paid little attention to short-term market fluctuations.

How Should Hedge Funds and Other Private Investment Pools Be Regulated? (2009)
 
02:04:22
The combination of decreasing interest rates, loosening lending standards and regulatory changes for publicly traded companies (specifically the Sarbanes-Oxley Act) would set the stage for the largest boom private equity had seen. Marked by the buyout of Dex Media in 2002, large multi-billion dollar U.S. buyouts could once again obtain significant high yield debt financing and larger transactions could be completed. By 2004 and 2005, major buyouts were once again becoming common, including the acquisitions of Toys "R" Us, The Hertz Corporation, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and SunGard in 2005. As 2005 ended and 2006 began, new "largest buyout" records were set and surpassed several times with nine of the top ten buyouts at the end of 2007 having been announced in an 18-month window from the beginning of 2006 through the middle of 2007. In 2006, private equity firms bought 654 U.S. companies for $375 billion, representing 18 times the level of transactions closed in 2003.[69] Additionally, U.S. based private equity firms raised $215.4 billion in investor commitments to 322 funds, surpassing the previous record set in 2000 by 22% and 33% higher than the 2005 fundraising total[70] The following year, despite the onset of turmoil in the credit markets in the summer, saw yet another record year of fundraising with $302 billion of investor commitments to 415 funds[71] Among the mega-buyouts completed during the 2006 to 2007 boom were: Equity Office Properties, HCA,[72] Alliance Boots[73] and TXU.[74] In July 2007, turmoil that had been affecting the mortgage markets, spilled over into the leveraged finance and high-yield debt markets.[75][76] The markets had been highly robust during the first six months of 2007, with highly issuer friendly developments including PIK and PIK Toggle (interest is "Payable In Kind") and covenant light debt widely available to finance large leveraged buyouts. July and August saw a notable slowdown in issuance levels in the high yield and leveraged loan markets with few issuers accessing the market. Uncertain market conditions led to a significant widening of yield spreads, which coupled with the typical summer slowdown led many companies and investment banks to put their plans to issue debt on hold until the autumn. However, the expected rebound in the market after 1 May 2007 did not materialize, and the lack of market confidence prevented deals from pricing. By the end of September, the full extent of the credit situation became obvious as major lenders including Citigroup and UBS AG announced major writedowns due to credit losses. The leveraged finance markets came to a near standstill during a week in 2007.[77] As 2007 ended and 2008 began, it was clear[by whom?] that lending standards had tightened and the era of "mega-buyouts" had come to an end. Nevertheless, private equity continues to be a large and active asset class and the private equity firms, with hundreds of billions of dollars of committed capital from investors are looking to deploy capital in new and different transactions. Although the capital for private equity originally came from individual investors or corporations, in the 1970s, private equity became an asset class in which various institutional investors allocated capital in the hopes of achieving risk adjusted returns that exceed those possible in the public equity markets. In the 1980s, insurers were major private equity investors. Later, public pension funds and university and other endowments became more significant sources of capital.[78] For most institutional investors, private equity investments are made as part of a broad asset allocation that includes traditional assets (e.g., public equity and bonds) and other alternative assets (e.g., hedge funds, real estate, commodities). Most institutional investors do not invest directly in privately held companies, lacking the expertise and resources necessary to structure and monitor the investment. Instead, institutional investors will invest indirectly through a private equity fund. Certain institutional investors have the scale necessary to develop a diversified portfolio of private equity funds themselves, while others will invest through a fund of funds to allow a portfolio more diversified than one a single investor could construct. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_equity

What is OFFSHORE FUND? What does OFFSHORE FUND mean? OFFSHORE FUND meaning - OFFSHORE FUND definition - OFFSHORE FUND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. An offshore fund is a term which generally refers to a collective investment scheme domiciled in an offshore jurisdiction. Like the term "offshore company", the term is more descriptive than definitive, and both the words 'offshore' and 'fund' may be construed differently. The reference to offshore, in the classic case, usually means a traditional offshore jurisdiction such as the Cayman Islands, Jersey or the British Virgin Islands. However, the term is also frequently used to include other corporate domiciles popular for cross border investment structuring, such as Delaware and Luxembourg. In the widest sense, offshore is sometimes used to include any type of cross border collective investment scheme, and popular fund domiciles such as Ireland may be included within the definition of offshore, notwithstanding their substantial size as a country. Similarly, although the reference to fund can be taken to include any sort of collective investment, within offshore jurisdictions themselves, the term offshore fund is often limited to purely open-ended investment funds (i.e. a fund where the investor can redeem his investment during the life of the fund) where the investment is by way of equity (rather than by debt). This is often because closed-ended investment funds (where the investor cannot redeem out), and funds where the investment is structured by way of debt, are not normally subject to the usual regulatory requirements for investments funds, and so are not treated as funds in the stricter sense of that word. Although the term is often used as a simply descriptive one, many onshore countries have specific definitions in their legislation or their tax codes for when an investment is treated as an offshore fund. For example, in the United Kingdom see the Offshore Funds (Tax) Regulations 2009, and in the United States see section 871 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. Most developed offshore jurisdictions provide a broadly similar regulatory regime in relation to funds formed in their country. Typically, the regulatory regime will take a two tier approach, making a distinction between funds which are offered generally to members of the public (which will require a high degree of regulation because of the nature of potential investors), and non-public funds. Non-public funds are usually either categorised as private funds or professional funds or some equivalent label. Typically, investors in non-public funds can be assumed to be sophisticated because of the nature of the offering – there may, for example, be a high minimum initial investment, say US$100,000, and/or a requirement that investors establish that they are "professional investors" (although some offshore jurisdictions allow investors to self-certify this). Alternatively the fund may be designed for a small and select group of investors and the constitutional documents will limit the number of investors, say to no more than 50. Although most offshore jurisdictions permit funds to obtain licences to operate as public funds, the onerous regulatory requirements associated with such licences usually means that only a small minority of offshore funds are available for subscription by the general public. Most offshore domiciling of funds tends to be regulatory driven rather than tax driven. The relative absence of regulation relating to leveraging and investment strategies in offshore jurisdictions encourages higher risk funds, such as hedge funds, to form themselves in those jurisdictions. Typically the offshore jurisdiction in which a fund is incorporated will not impose any direct taxation on the income of the fund. Nor will it impose any withholding or similar income taxes on distributions by the fund to its investors. However, this does not normally operate to exempt the fund from taxes which may arise as a result of its investment activities in other countries. So, for example, if a fund former in the Cayman Islands realises a capital gain on trade in New York, it will still normally be liable to U.S. capital gains tax in the usual way. Similarly, if a person domiciled in the United Kingdom invests in a Guernsey fund, they will still be liable to taxation of income and capital gains received under British tax laws (subject to the rules on remittance of foreign earned income), notwithstanding the absence of any taxation imposed in Guernsey.
