- A discussion on the history and regulation of hedge funds
- Detailed analysis of hedge fund strategies illustrated by trade examples from successful hedge fund managers
- A complete guide on the various risk and return statistics used by hedge funds
- A description of existing hedge fund databases and indices.
- An overview of how to use hedge funds in portfolio construction
