Hedge Funds Go On Offensive

By Matthew Beaton    Read full article here

Hedge funds are written about as a monolith. At best, it’s an industry of personalities; at worst, one of villainous robber barons. Few in the press, much less the public, know about the innovative strategies managers employ to minimize risk, find alpha and maintain low correlations.

Sure, some major shops will get the profile treatment (often for the wrong reasons), but in general, there’s a fundamental disinterest in how managers invest. The strategies are too diverse, the tactics too nuanced, and the public’s demand for information too small for reporters to find and report on them […] Read more

From The Real Deal

It also has hard wood and marble floors, a guest apartment and a three-car garage. It’s unclear if a Keurig machine was included in the deal. The two-story mansion was […] Read more

PBHFA’s Sponsor Castle Ridge Featured In The Economist

May 25th, 2017– The Economist

MACHINE-LEARNING is beginning to shake up finance. A subset of artificial intelligence (AI) that excels at finding patterns and making predictions, it used to be the preserve of technology firms. The financial industry has jumped on the bandwagon.

From 2019, anyone seeking to become a “chartered financial analyst”, a sought-after distinction in the industry, will need AI expertise to pass his exams.

Despite the […] Read more
