Hedge Fund Alert: Looking Around the Corner for More Risk and Opportunity

How do current market activities, regulatory changes and dislocations potentially impact the ability of hedge funds to prosper going forward? The huge changes occurring in the markets are having a significant impact on hedge funds, including short sale restrictions, disclosure requirements and the effective elimination of the investment banking model and its attendant impact on sources of funds to provide leverage and liquidity.

Current and potential hedge fund investors should be aware of changes in the market and should monitor investments closely, including asking additional questions of their hedge fund managers and gathering vital market and regulatory information. Fiduciaries should not take a “wait and see” approach, but should pursue key information in order to make prudent decisions.
