In 2015 the FSCA  (then the FSB) approved the regulation 300+ hedge funds as collective investment schemes (CIS).

Many experienced investors are unaware of these mature, tried and tested investment strategies that have been delivering greater returns than most general equities and with significantly less risk than most balanced funds* for 18 years in South Africa.

This 2-hour read sheds light on hedge funds, the alternative investments that are not necessarily an asset class as much as they are a wealth of investment strategies operating together to generate equity-like returns while yielding considerably less downside risk than the equity markets.

  • Basic Introduction and history
  • Strategies and Themes
  • Macro-Economics and Volatility
  • Risks Associated with Hedge Funds
  • Picking the Right Manager
