  • A comparison with mutual funds;
  • The framework for using hedge funds;
  • Benefits and risks of hedge funds;
  • Hedge-fund strategies;
  • Performance analysis.

An understanding of hedge funds allows you to increase your value to your clients by offering them advice about this investment product.
