"In my career as a hedge fund manager I wanted all my employees to have the understanding of the industry that Hedge Fund Investing provides. Now, as I business school lecturer, I realize the details of the business that Kevin writes about are not found in a typical MBA hedge fund course. Kevin's knowledge is unusually valuable because he has worked in all aspects of the hedge fund business – financing, trading, portfolio management and manager selection, he is an ideal person to learn from" – Kevin Coldiron, Lecturer, Haas Business School and co-author of The Rise of Carry (McGraw-Hill, 2020).
