Praise for 
 Hedge Fund of Funds Investing: An Investor’s Guid 
by Joseph G. Nicholas
“Hedge funds of funds are at the leading edge of the broad move intohedge investing by the mainstream of private wealth management. As JoeNicholas clearly describes in this definitive primer, hedge funds of fundsare the primary vehicles being used today at top wealth management firmsbecause of inherent advantages—including superior diversification, econo-mies of scale within the fragmented hedge industry, access to closed funds,and professional supervision for manager selection and risk management.
 Joe has created a valuable tool to help all of us in using these impor-tant yet complex investment vehicles

 Hedge Fund of Funds Investing 
provides a thorough, well-articulateddiscussion of the key characteristics and issues associated with investing ina fund of hedge funds. I believe the frank disclosure of both the advantagesand disadvantages of these vehicles, as well as the information on selectinga fund of funds, will make this book 
required reading for individual andinstitutional investors alike

“This is a great reference for those who are just beginning to invest inhedge funds, as well as for those who already have a hedge fund of fundsallocation. If you are new to this investment vehicle, the book 
providesa thorough description of funds of funds and a great framework for conducting the due diligence process.
If you are already invested infunds of funds, it will prompt you to ask some probing questions at thenext meeting with your fund of funds manager.

an authoritative and innovative handbook of fund of funds investing that is essential for both financial and non-financial decision makers.
Building upon his previous writing, he hassuccessfully applied his practical hands-on experience to demystify thehedge fund industry using common sense explanations that do not dependon obscure jargon or understanding.”

Joe clearly explains the reasons forthis growth as he examines the hedge fund industry and assesses funds of hedge funds as the most effective way to gain exposure to the hedge fundarena. The book is
a terrific resource
for those considering an invest-ment in hedge funds and/or a fund of hedge funds.”
