Hedge Funds & Liquid Alternatives Training Course

The most comprehensive overview of the hedge funds market available

16 - 18 May 2016

Radisson Blu Edwardian Grafton, London

The Hedge Fund industry is the fastest growing part of the asset management industry and this course is crucial for anyone who wants to be ready for this growth. The significant lack of knowledge of strategies employed, the leverage, the return drivers and the risks, remain a significant bottleneck to more progressive allocations to hedge funds by more mainline investment institutions.

Attend this three-day course and equip yourself with:

  • The skills to demystify the increasing complexity of strategies adopted
  • An understanding of the risk characteristics and structure of hedge funds; lessons learned from market corrections
  • The advantages and disadvantages of investing in hedge funds and liquid alternatives
  • A clear understanding of the different hedge fund strategies, the regulation of hedge funds and the legal issues
  • The latest developments in the hedge fund and liquid alternative industry

One of the best courses I have attended, very fruitful and enriching information and environment. I liked the way it is presented and the presentation skills of the speaker, with practical examples given, instead of only theory
