Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Switzerland Is the World’s Largest Hedge Fund / Companies / Hedge Funds

By: John_Mauldin

The BOJ, the ECB, and the Fed have gone on an asset buying spree since 2008.

Meanwhile, the more sober-minded gnomes of the Swiss National Bank expanded their own balance sheet at a much steadier pace.

Though in percentage terms, it blew it up far more than the Fed or the BOJ did theirs. And now the Swiss National Bank is the world's largest hedge fund.

The Growth of the Asian Hedge Fund Industry, with Vietnam as a Superior Location / Companies / Hedge Funds

By: Submissions

Dylan Waller writes: The Asian hedge fund industry, which grew by approximately 30% in 2014, is poised for substantial growth.  Asian hedge funds were able to hold their ground in 2014, a year that was particularly challenging for the hedge fund industry in general.  During Q2 2015, Asia Pacific based hedge funds returned 5.14%, while hedge funds in North America only returned 1.19%, and Europe based hedge funds reported a loss of 0.11%.  The historical superior performance of Asia Pacific hedge funds certainly necessitates a shift of hedge funds to this region.

How Many Hedge Funds Will Die Next Year? / Stock-Markets / Hedge Funds

By: John_Rubino

For those who keep hearing about hedge funds but aren’t quite sure what they are: Think mutual fund with no rules. A hedge fund is an investment company that can do pretty much anything, from shorting currencies to betting on biotech takeovers to writing credit default swaps.

This kind of freedom, as you can imagine, requires a fair degree of creativity, if not genius, on the part of fund managers. And therein lies the problem. As the concept has gotten popular the number of hedge funds and the money they manage have soared. There are now 11,000 of them running about $3 trillion.

The Only Public Hedge Fund You Should Own / Companies / Hedge Funds

By: Money_Morning

Hedge fund managers who offer shares to the general public have lost investors billions. Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC (NYSE: OZM) has lost over half of its value since its debut during the financial crisis. Fortress Investment Group LLC (NYSE: FIG) has lost three quarters over the same time period. But there is one hedge fund that just might live up to the hype. I'm going to tell you about it here.

Mind you, if you have $10,000 or more to invest, you can skip the whole hedge fund hoopla and invest in so called "liquidity products." These are hybrids between hedge funds and mutual funds – essentially, hedge funds that are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Blackrock, Deutsche Asset Management, PIMCO and a host of others have been pumping these out in recent years.
