"Over the Hedge" - Understanding Hedge Funds (Replay)
Presented by Michael J. Foote and Joyce Newton

The hedge fund industry has exploded, as have the paychecks of its millionaire and billionaire managers, creating a new pool of wealthy donors. How philanthropic are these prospects? This Virtual Seminar will provide an overview of this complicated financial sector and how it differs from PE and VC. Seminar topics include basic facts and terminology, SEC regulations and documents and differences between traditional (mutual funds et al) and alternative investments (hedge funds, et al). The presenters share examples to illustrate how a researcher might evaluate/rate a hedge fund prospect.
