World Scientific's Hedge Fund Alpha: A Framework for Generating and
Understanding Investment Performance book recently received critical acclaim
from The Investment Professional, the quarterly published journal of The New
York Society of Security Analysts.
The review commended book editor Professor John M Longo from Rutgers
University for skillfully connecting both the "portfolio manager's and the
investor's perspectives" to hedge funds and for providing an exclusive look at
generating and understanding investment performance. The review further
commended Longo for identifying seven trends in the hedge funds industry and
for drawing upon experts like Erman Civelek and Saad Rathore to provide
coverage on their subject areas.
Mr Max Phua, Executive Director of World Scientific said, "Professor Longo
has given us some useful perspectives to hedge funds in an appealing and
easy-to-digest manner. World Scientific is proud to be part of this insightful book
which I believe will go a long way in helping investors as well as portfolio
managers gain a deeper understanding about hedge funds."
