No Magazine at a bookstore can give you a better window directly into the Hedge Fund industry’s behind the scenes activities. Sustainability there are interviews with people on the other side of the Hedge Fund tunnel that built successful funds, had successful careers, raised capital, went to industry events, and kept their Hedge Fund compliant.

Look Inside
The Hedge Fund Book is a 190-page book with 9 chapters including index and glossary. The interviews contained within the book spotlight some of the highest executives and professional in the hedge fund world. The book goes into many different angles a person might enter the industry in. Covering information for administrations and lawyers to execution traders and investors

Final View

Without this training manual, the industry set sail without you
  • Funky
The book provides a discussion of various things to consider when starting a hedge fund. While the advice is generally sound, much of it is facile in nature.

Also, and this is the most annoying part of this book, Wilson has simply printed transcripts of interviews he conducted with numerous industry participants. If Wilson truly is an expert, he should take the time to distil the key points from these interviews and then couple them with his own views and write clear compelling chapters. Instead, he devotes pages and pages to interviewee bios, greetings ("Thanks for meeting with me"), and self-congratulatory comments ("That's a great point, Bill! I couldn't agree more").

In a further effort to increase the page count, he also pads it out with useless end of chapter summary questions and a long FAQ section. If those FAQ's are worthy of inclusion in the book, surely it would be useful to weave their content into the relevant chapters rather than simply bolting them on as the final chapter.

In the book, Wilson advises budding hedge fund managers to make sure they've got a killer Powerpoint pitch that is concise. Frankly, he should have taken his own advice and shortened this book to about a 20 page brochure or Powerpoint. But then it would be tough to command 'hardcover' book prices.

I'm looking at this book as someone outside of finance looking to get in.

Pros:
Emphasizes creation of marketing materials. Talks about topics to mention specifically in marketing--very helpful.
New insight: Focus on selling process, trust, risk management (especially) and infrastructure rather than returns
Author has extra videos online that extend book topics, free discounts on related services. Author is well intentioned.
Really liked that he included a standard due diligence questionnaire

Cons:
Points made are often basic (emphasize unique selling proposition, positive thinking), rather than specific - Leaves out prime brokers & cap intro, soft dollars, legal & compliance issues (3c1vs 3c7, accredited vs qualified, etc.), historic context (Dodd-Frank legislation impact, rise of high frequency) & industry landscape (funds vs fund of funds, institutions vs family offices etc).

Author comes off as obsequious in the interviews when he always agrees with subjects. Too many interviews with service providers, not enough with name brand hedge fund managers. Study questions seem silly for a non-academic book.

Great book from a guy has worked his way up through this industry. I am immersed in my CAIA/CFA studies and recently became cognizant of the CHP -Certified Hedge Fund Prof. dez. This book was a great qualitative refresh from the analytics of my other two designation pursuits. I highly recommend the book and the visual guide to hedge funds by Richard, as well as pursuit of the CHP is you aspire to dominate and be an authority in the alternative/hedge arena.
  • Rainbearer
Solid Foundational book for the beginner to the expert. Some issues on content and can be edited out with the next release. I found the information valuable.
  • Cerekelv
The messages delivered in this book is clear. There are many considerations for hedge fund start-ups and those wanting to grow larger and better and this book paves the way for such tiresome endeavors. Spoilers not included, there are certain executions that are necessary to ensure investors' confidence and ease-of-mind. These often forgotten, neglected and forsaken steps are emphasized here and one should never overlook such simple procedures.

The book is written in a casual style of interviews. It is easy to read and comfortable to study.
On hindsight, the delivery can be more structured. The links to the videos no longer exist because the book was written in 2010 and some of the links has expired. The videos are supplements to the book that gives it extra value but the value is not accessible and this can be rather frustrating. Still, a good read.

Mr. Wilson has done it again with this book. He goes in depth on the Hedge Fund industry. Topics included and covered are:

1. Hedge fund mechanics and statistics
2. Hedge fund ecosystem
3. Interview with several fund managers
4.Interview with hedge fund start up gurus
5. Due diligence
6. Governance & best practices

It is required reading for the Hedge Fund Professional course but it will not disappoint. I did learn a lot from it and especially learned how the 'big boys' in the industry think.
90% about marketing and raising capital
