The hedge fund industry has grown rapidly over the last decade and is getting recognized as an ’alternative’ to the traditional mutual fund investment. University endowments and high net worth individuals have long invested in hedge funds. More recently, European pension funds have also started making significant investments in hedge funds, in spite of the relative lack of transparency, disclosure, liquidity, regulation, capacity etc. The regulatory authorities in Europe are opening up to hedge funds, considering harmonization of regulation; attempts are also being made to bring hedge funds to retail investors. This course will examine the raison d’être behind these developments, the modus operandi of hedge funds, their legal, organisational and operational structures, their risk-return characteristics, their model of aligning the interests of investors and managers, and the likelihood of their success in the future.
