Hedge Fund of Funds Investing

rovides a thorough, well-articulated discussion of the key characteristics and issues associated with investing in a fund of hedge funds. I believe the frank disclosure of both the advantages and disadvantages of these vehicles, as well as the information on selecting a fund of funds, will make this book required reading for individual and

institutional investors alike.\u201d

This is a great reference for those who are just beginning to invest in
edge funds, as well as for those who already have a hedge fund of funds
allocation. If you are new to this investment vehicle, the bookprovides
a thorough description of funds of funds and a great framework for
conducting the due diligence process. If you are already invested in
funds of funds, it will prompt you to ask some probing questions at the
ext meeting with your fund of funds manager.\u201d

Joe Nicholas has created an authoritative and innovative handbook of
und of funds investing that is essential for both financial and non-
inancial decision makers. Building upon his previous writing, he has
successfully applied his practical hands-on experience to demystify the
edge fund industry using common sense explanations that do not depend

There has been tremendous growth in the fund of hedge fund business,
with assets doubling in the last year. Joe clearly explains the reasons for
his growth as he examines the hedge fund industry and assesses funds of
edge funds as the most effective way to gain exposure to the hedge fund
arena. The book is a terrific resource for those considering an invest-
ent in hedge funds and/or a fund of hedge funds.\u201d
\u2014 Patricia Young

While hedge funds of funds have proliferated as a relatively new invest-
ent vehicle, reliable information about these vehicles has been limited.
Joe Nicholas\u2019s timely book does a magnificent job of providing
concise, valuable information about these popular new funds.\u201d
