Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV Deepak Gurnani is Co-Founder and Head of the $5bn hedge fund portfolio at $12bn, global alternative asset manager Investcorp. In this Opalesque.TV interview we learn that the firm's investment process has always been rooted in addressing the typically lax hedge fund risk management practices, which according to Gurnani are "at best, average". Since inception Investcorp has evolved with the needs of its investors from a past focus on fund of funds to its present growth as a hedge fund solutions provider, whereby only 16% of the business is invested through fund of funds and the remainder through customized solutions, seeding businesses and a single manager platform. The Alpha Project Gurnani's belief in the role of quantitative analysis lead him and Investcorp to develop the Alpha Project, a program 9 years in the making that identifies systematic components of hedge fund returns in order to capture alpha and beta in managers' returns. Learn about: • Why managed accounts are appealing from a risk perspective • Research shows managed account negative selection bias is wrong • What is the Alpha Project? Separating alpha generating managers • Alpha Project to inform hedge fund cyclicality and tactical asset allocations • Investcorp's dedicated Quantitative Research Team Deepak Gurnani joined Investcorp in 1993 and established the risk management function. Deepak subsequently became the risk manager for Investcorp globally covering all lines of business and also a member on the Commitment Committee for the bank. He was one of the founding members of the hedge funds business in 1996 and currently serves as Head of Hedge Funds. Gurnani was recently identified as a "risk management mastermind" in a profile on his business and investment strategies in Cathleen Rittereiser's book "Top Hedge Fund Investors", and he attributes Investcorp's 18 years of hedge fund investing success to a focus on risk management that has resulted in a unique and highly sophisticated hedge fund investment process. Prior to Investcorp, Deepak Gurnani spent six years with Citicorp where he was engaged in various management/information technology consultancy assignments with Citicorp/Citibank offices in Europe. Deepak holds a BTec from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, and an MBA (specializing in banking, finance and systems) from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad.

Why mutual funds create more risk than other investments.
 
12:19
When analyzing a mutual fund there are more things to consider than just the historical returns. Many times people ask us how our returns are relative to other investment. The real question is how can we reduce your investment risk compared to others, while still positioning for growth. When analyzing mutual funds there is a way to plot the returns relative to the risk you are taking. Sadly most mutual funds start to drift away from efficiency and investors find that they are taking increased risk for the same level of returns you could achieve elsewhere. Today Dustin is going to show how you can have an efficient investment portfolio for retirement, and still generate the projected returns. When saving and investing for retirement always consider more than just the historical returns of a product. Consider the overall volatility of the product relative to the returns stated.

An investment is a way of trying to use money to earn money. For example, if you bought Humphrey the Beanie Baby in the 90s for $5, you might be able to sell it today for $500. That would be a great investment. If you buy a house, and rent out rooms in it for income – that is an investment. And even if you don’t rent out the rooms? If the house value appreciates over time, it’s still an investment. You can also invest in companies. When you invest in a company’s stock, you’re buying a piece of that company. You could make money off of that investment by selling it for more than you paid originally. In some cases, you can even earn income before you sell it if the company you invest in pays dividends. BUT…(you knew there was a ‘but’ coming didn’t you?) Most investments come with what’s called RISK. There are many different risks when it comes to investing, but one that people tend to worry about most is the risk of a given stock. That is, how much an investment is likely to move DOWN or UP over a period of time. Why would someone choose a riskier investment? There is generally a relationship between risk and the potential for gains. As in, the riskier an investment is, the more likely the stock is going to up or down. So generally, while you are young and have a long time until retirement, you can afford to take a chance with riskier investments. And as you mature and get closer to retirement, you want to have reduced volatility in your portfolio.

Financial Markets (ECON 252) Statistics and mathematics underlie the theories of finance. Probability Theory and various distribution types are important to understanding finance. Risk management, for instance, depends on tools such as variance, standard deviation, correlation, and regression analysis. Financial analysis methods such as present values and valuing streams of payments are fundamental to understanding the time value of money and have been in practice for centuries. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Hedge Fund Manager Leda Braga- Systematic Algorithms Trading vs Discretionary
 
14:38
Discretionary vs. Systematic: Braga’s BlueTrend and BlueMatrix are so-called systematic funds that rely on computer algorithms to make trades. “Systematic trading takes the emotion out of trading,” says Braga at her office in Geneva, overlooking the Swiss Alps. When a trader is forced to sell at a loss, “he takes that home with him,” she says. “A black box doesn’t care.” Systematic investors program their computers to exploit correlations between stock and bond performance and other data, such as interest rates, economic growth, or even weather. “There’s a creative moment when you think of a hypothesis, maybe it’s that interest rate data drives” currency rates, she says. “So we think about that first before mining the data. We don’t mine the data to come up with ideas.” Leda Braga started her own shop this year, Systematica, and has inspired enough confidence to pull in $8.8 billion of investor funds, with solid returns so far this year. She had previously worked at BlueCrest Capital Management, starting there, Braga related, when she was 34 weeks pregnant. The hedge fund industry's top woman manager attributes her success to using data in a disciplined, consistent way that has allowed her to keep customers happy and establish her place in Wall Street's boys' club. Braga credited a disciplined approach among her traders, who she said in "a consistent way it doesn't matter quite so much that you be right at every forecasting point. It does matter that you're right more than half the time. Then you risk manage your positions very carefully." In 2004, she launched and managed what became one of the firm's largest strategies and funds, BlueTrend. The fund uses a "managed futures" strategy, meaning it trades the futures contracts of stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities and looks for trends in the movements of their prices, so-called trend following.

What Are the Risks Associated with Hedge Funds? Operational Risk Management & Banking (1998)
 
02:40:41
Because investments in hedge funds can add diversification to investment portfolios, investors may use them as a tool to reduce their overall portfolio risk exposures. Managers of hedge funds use particular trading strategies and instruments with the specific aim of reducing market risks to produce risk-adjusted returns, which are consistent with investors' desired level of risk. Hedge funds ideally produce returns relatively uncorrelated with market indices. While "hedging" can be a way of reducing the risk of an investment, hedge funds, like all other investment types, are not immune to risk. According to a report by the Hennessee Group, hedge funds were approximately one-third less volatile than the S&P 500 between 1993 and 2010. Investors in hedge funds are, in most countries, required to be sophisticated qualified investors who are assumed to be aware of the investment risks, and accept these risks because of the potential returns relative to those risks. Fund managers may employ extensive risk management strategies in order to protect the fund and investors. According to the Financial Times, "big hedge funds have some of the most sophisticated and exacting risk management practices anywhere in asset management."[45] Hedge fund managers may hold a large number of investment positions for short durations and are likely to have a particularly comprehensive risk management system in place. Funds may have "risk officers" who assess and manage risks but are not otherwise involved in trading, and may employ strategies such as formal portfolio risk models.[48] A variety of measuring techniques and models may be used to calculate the risk incurred by a hedge fund's activities; fund managers may use different models depending on their fund's structure and investment strategy.[46][49] Some factors, such as normality of return, are not always accounted for by conventional risk measurement methodologies. Funds which use value at risk as a measurement of risk may compensate for this by employing additional models such as drawdown and "time under water" to ensure all risks are captured.[50] In addition to assessing the market-related risks that may arise from an investment, investors commonly employ operational due diligence to assess the risk that error or fraud at a hedge fund might result in loss to the investor. Considerations will include the organization and management of operations at the hedge fund manager, whether the investment strategy is likely to be sustainable, and the fund's ability to develop as a company. Since hedge funds are private entities and have few public disclosure requirements, this is sometimes perceived as a lack of transparency.[52] Another common perception of hedge funds is that their managers are not subject to as much regulatory oversight and/or registration requirements as other financial investment managers, and more prone to manager-specific idiosyncratic risks such as style drifts, faulty operations, or fraud.[49] New regulations introduced in the US and the EU as of 2010 require hedge fund managers to report more information, leading to greater transparency.[53] In addition, investors, particularly institutional investors, are encouraging further developments in hedge fund risk management, both through internal practices and external regulatory requirements.[45] The increasing influence of institutional investors has led to greater transparency: hedge funds increasingly provide information to investors including valuation methodology, positions and leverage exposure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedge_fund

Asset Management: Industry Overview and Careers in Asset Management

Asset Management: Industry overview and Careers in Asset Management Asset Management is about managing clients’ investments and providing them with the strategies and expertise that would allow them to achieve their goals and secure their financial future. This video is part of our series dedicated to the different sub-industries in the world of Business & Finance.Our goal is to understand how it functions, what type of services it offers its clients, which are the major players in the field and what it is like to do this for a living. An individual or an institution is likely to approach an asset management firm when their investment income is substantial. In such cases, asset managers are able to offer expertise across a wide spectrum of asset classes (such as stocks, bonds, commodities, real estate, private equity, etc). Moreover, large firms have branches all over the world and are therefore able to offer geographical expertise as well. Given that asset managers closely follow all of these markets, they are able to offer high-quality advice and superior risk-return investments. The large players in the asset management industry are indeed very large. There are several companies whose assets under management exceed $1 trillion. Some of them are pure investment funds (BlackRock, Vanguard, StateStreet, Fidelity), while others are arms of the large banking conglomerates (Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, UBS, BNP). The largest firm in the world in terms of assets under management in 2015 was BlackRock.

What is Alpha and Beta Risk? Alpha vs Beta as Investment Risk Ratios | Investing for Beginners
 
07:18
Alpha and beta are both risk ratios that investors use as a tool to calculate, compare and predict returns. You are most likely to see alpha and beta referenced with mutual funds. Both measurements utilize benchmark indexes, such as the BSE Sensex, and compare them against the individual security to highlight a particular performance tendency. Alpha is a measure of an fund's performance compared to a benchmark. It's a mathematical estimate of the return, based usually on the growth of earnings per share. Beta, on the other hand, is based on the volatility—extreme ups and downs in prices or trading—of the stock or fund, something not measured by alpha. But beta, too, is compared to a benchmark.

Do Hedge Fund Managers Manage Systemic Risk? Financial Experts on Market Regulations (2008)
 
02:06:07
Hedge funds within the US are subject to regulatory, reporting and record keeping requirements.[132] Many hedge funds also fall under the jurisdiction of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and are subject to rules and provisions of the 1922 Commodity Exchange Act which prohibits fraud and manipulation.[133] The Securities Act of 1933 required companies to file a registration statement with the SEC to comply with its private placement rules before offering their securities to the public.[134] The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 required a fund with more than 499 investors to register with the SEC. The Investment Advisers Act of 1940 contained anti-fraud provisions that regulated hedge fund managers and advisers, created limits for the number and types of investors, and prohibited public offerings. The Act also exempted hedge funds from mandatory registration with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) when selling to accredited investors with a minimum of US$5 million in investment assets. Companies and institutional investors with at least US$25 million in investment assets also qualified.[140] In December 2004, the SEC began requiring hedge fund advisers, managing more than US$25 million and with more than 14 investors, to register with the SEC under the Investment Advisers Act.[141] The SEC stated that it was adopting a "risk-based approach" to monitoring hedge funds as part of its evolving regulatory regimen for the burgeoning industry.[142] The new rule was controversial, with two commissioners dissenting,[143] and was later challenged in court by a hedge fund manager. In June 2006, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia overturned the rule and sent it back to the agency to be reviewed.[144] In response to the court decision, in 2007 the SEC adopted Rule 206(4)-8, which unlike the earlier challenged rule, "does not impose additional filing, reporting or disclosure obligations" but does potentially increase "the risk of enforcement action" for negligent or fraudulent activity.[145] Hedge fund managers with at least US$100 million in assets under management are required to file publicly quarterly reports disclosing ownership of registered equity securities and are subject to public disclosure if they own more than 5% of the class of any registered equity security. Registered advisers must report their business practices and disciplinary history to the SEC and to their investors. They are required to have written compliance policies, a chief compliance officer and their records and practices may be examined by the SEC. The U.S.'s Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act was passed in July 2010 and requires SEC registration of advisers who represented funds with more than US$150 million in assets, and funds with more than 15 US clients, and investors managing US$25 million. Registered managers must file information regarding their assets under management and trading positions. Previously, advisers with fewer than 15 clients were exempt, although many hedge fund advisers voluntarily registered with the SEC to satisfy institutional investors. Under Dodd-Frank, hedge fund managers with less than US$100 million in assets under management became subject to state regulation. This increased the number of hedge funds under state supervision. Overseas funds with more than 15 US clients and investors who managed more than US$25 million were also required to register with the SEC. The Act requires hedge funds to provide information about their trades and portfolios to regulators including the newly created Financial Stability Oversight Council. Under the "Volcker Rule," regulators are also required to implement regulations for banks, their affiliates, and holding companies to limit their relationships with hedge funds and to prohibit these organizations from proprietary trading, and to limit their investment in, and sponsorship of, hedge funds. Hedge funds posted disappointing returns in 2008, but the average hedge fund return of -18.65% (the HFRI Fund Weighted Composite Index return) was far better than the returns generated by most assets other than cash or cash equivalents. The S&P 500 total return was -37.00% in 2008, and that was one of the best performing equity indices in the world. Several equity markets lost more than half their value. Most foreign and domestic corporate debt indices also suffered in 2008, posting losses significantly worse than the average hedge fund. Mutual funds also performed much worse than hedge funds in 2008. According to Lipper, the average US domestic equity mutual fund decreased 37.6% in 2008. The average international equity mutual fund declined 45.8%. The average sector mutual fund dropped 39.7%. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedge_fund

Their name comes from the fact that early hedge funds (and some current ones) tried to "hedge" their exposure to the market (so they could, in theory, do well in an "up" or "down" market as long as they were good at picking the good companies). Today, hedge funds represent a huge class investment funds. They are far less regulated than, say, mutual funds. In exchange for this, they aren't allowed to market or take investments from "unsophisticated" investors. Some use their flexibility to mitigate risk, other use it to amplify it.

Alternative Investment: William Blair Macro Allocation Fund Video
 
02:12
The William Blair Macro Allocation Fund is a "highly granular" fund that invests opportunistically with a focused risk management style. This brief video is one in a series of straightforward answers to alternative investing questions. The speaker is Brian Singer, head of William Blair's Dynamic Allocation Strategies team. Brian is a board member and former chair of the CFA Institute Board of Governors and is also a former member of the Research Foundation of CFA Institute Board of Trustees. In 1991, Brian co-wrote a landmark update to one of the pioneering studies on asset allocation, "Determinants of Portfolio Performance II: An Update," with Gary Brinson and Gilbert Beebower. In 2009, Brian was the lead author of "Investment Leadership and Portfolio Management," Wiley Publishing. Subscribe to the series. DISCLOSURE The Fund involves a high level of risk and may not be appropriate for everyone. You could lose money by investing in the Fund. There can be no assurance that the Fund's investment objective will be achieved. The Fund is not a complete investment program and you should only consider the Fund for the alternative portion of your portfolio. Separate accounts managed by the Advisor may invest in the Fund and, therefore, the Advisor at times may have discretionary authority over a significant portion of the assets invested in the Fund. In such instances, the Advisor's decision to make changes to or rebalance its clients' allocations in the separate accounts may substantially impact the Fund's performance. The Fund is designed for long-term investors. The Fund may use investment techniques and financial instruments that may be considered aggressive—including but not limited to the use of futures contracts, options on futures contracts, securities and indices, forward contracts, swap agreements and similar instruments. Such techniques may also include short sales or other techniques that are intended to provide inverse exposure to a particular market or other asset class, as well as leverage. These techniques may expose the Fund to potentially dramatic changes (losses) in the value of certain of its portfolio holdings. Investments are subject to a number of other different types of risk, including market risk, asset allocation risk credit risk, commodity risk, counterparty and contractual default risk, currency risk, and derivatives risk. For a more detailed explanation and discussion of these risks, please read the Fund's Prospectus. PLEASE CAREFULLY CONSIDER THE FUND'S INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE, RISKS, CHARGES, AND EXPENSES BEFORE INVESTING. THIS AND OTHER INFORMATION IS CONTAINED IN THE FUND'S PROSPECTUS, WHICH YOU MAY OBTAIN BY CALLING +1 800 742 7272.

Doug Barnett: The hedge fund manager of hedge fund managers
 
22:51
Subscribe to this channel: http://www.youtube.com/OpalesqueTV For over 21 years, Doug Barnett has been investing in Thailand, achieving a 3111% gain in value (IRR = 18.1%), while, as a comparison, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway was up only 1860% (IRR 15.3%) and BANPU, the best performing listed Thai stock, was up only 1090%. Over the same period, Thailand's SET Index was down 1%. Thailand -- as all emerging countries -- is volatile. Therefore, Barnett prefers investors who understand the opportunity set and recommends to invest with a multiple-year time horizon. Julian Robertson and George Soros were among his early investors, and now, 40% of his clients are actually the private accounts of other hedge fund managers. In this Opalesque.TV BACKSTAGE interview, Barnett talks about: * The Rationale for a dedicated Emerging Country Fund - here: Thailand * Barnett's competitive advantage: outsmarting "housewives" and daytraders * The dominating role of Earnings Growth in emerging markets: Medium term, earnings growth overrides volatility * Do politics and "red shirts / yellow shirts" affect Doug's fund? Corporate governance & regulation in Thailand * Thai Market Overview: The universe of stocks & Why now is a good time to invest in Thailand * How to hedge in Thailand & Risk Management Doug Barnett is President of Quest Management Inc., the only Thai-based foreign fund manager focusing primarily on Thailand. Doug has twenty four years of experience in the investment banking and fund management business, and specializes in the Thai stock market for the past twenty one years. Prior to founding Quest in 1994, Mr. Barnett was the Managing Director of Swiss Fund, the Thai division of the global Unifund group. As head of Swiss Fund, Mr. Barnett spearheaded a focused investment strategy that achieved a $350 million profit on an average investment of $150 million over four years. Before developing his expertise in the Thai stock market, Mr. Barnett worked in Los Angeles for three years as an Associate for Morgan Stanley. He earned a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering, both from Princeton University. Before graduating at the top of his class in 1987 from UCLA's Anderson Graduate School of Management, Mr. Barnett worked for five years as a project engineer for Chevron Corporation.

Oldest South African hedge fund, up 30% annualised for 17 years, to close soon to new investments
 
25:10
Peregrine Capital was founded in July 1998 by Clive Nates and David Fraser. Now in its 17th year, it is the oldest hedge fund manager in the South African market and has displayed a consistent investment ethos since inception. Peregrine Capital accounts for around 8% of the South African industry asset base. Management team owns 50% of the management company, while Peregrine Holdings Limited (a JSE listed financial conglomerate) owns the remaining 50%. The company is predominantly focused on the South African listed equity market through one investment philosophy and style (bottom up, stock picking) but offers four strategies with varying risk levels, including two funds with US-$ classes. Peregrine Capital’s High Growth Fund has been compounding at 30% annually since inception. Their initial investor enjoyed a 60x return. Over that time period the South African equity markets have also performed strongly, however the team at Peregrine has even outperformed the local market by over 100% year on year, which is a credible demonstration of consistent Alpha. Peregrine Capital can also invest in listed property, bonds and offshore opportunities. All of Peregrine Capital’s Rand based funds will close to new investments at the end of October, and there is only $50m capacity left in the US-$ based funds. Special skills are needed to successfully run a highly concentrated funds Peregrine’s top 10 holdings average 75% of exposure, but the team is convinced, and has indeed proven, that the excess risk-adjusted return from a concentrated portfolio outweighs the downside of potential volatility increases. In this Opalesque.TV BACKSTAGE video, partner and co-PM Jacques Conradie explains that conviction is the pre-condition for concentration, and the appropriate conviction can only be developed by deep and independent research. Still, volatility will test your convictions. The investment team is “not afraid of complicated situations” and neither of taking the right positions early while others might “wait until the dust settles”. Peregrine has also developed very efficient approaches and procedures to risk management. Jacques also speaks about: Can risk management add alpha? Why three PMs make a difference to one PM The significance of real, active hedging Why creating Alpha is hard: The need to “out-think” the competition. How to make money on the short side Making money independent of South African equity market performance. Case Study: “Outsurance” Jacques Conradie’s academic and professional credentials include a BCom (Hons) (Actuarial), FASSA, CFA. He has 8 years (all at Peregrine Capital) investment management experience. Jacques was awarded the Chancellor’s medal for being the top student graduating from Stellenbosch University in 2005. Jacques also represented South Africa at the International Mathematical Olympiad on three occasions and also at the International Olympiad in Informatics, winning three Bronze medals at these events. He started his career at Old Mutual in 2006 where he worked in the Life Insurance Product Development team and qualified as an Actuary during that time. Jacques joined Peregrine Capital in August 2007, and currently covers a number of sectors including banks, insurers, telecoms, media, IT and selected industrials. Jacques is also a member of the investment committee of the Mandela Rhodes foundation.
