Why Do Hedge Funds Go Bump?

Recommended Posts

When they are one such a one side "2 and 20" package, what is the downside?

I met a drunk middle-classed 20-something who surprised me by volunteering that he had a trust fund - and that he'd like to double his money.

Somewhat taken aback (as I'd only met him that evening) I exclaimed "trivial" - he looked shocked... I said "we take your money to the casino, put it all on red and spin the roulette wheel. I'll only charge you 10% for my expert advice."

He seemed serious - so, it just goes to show, there is one born every minute.

I must admit that i don't really know much about the hedge fund industry except the obvious.What surprised me most was the amount of leverage used by those like peleton-32 times :o:o:o:o

I mean,it's not gonna take much of a wind to blow that baby out of the pram.

'When they are one such a one side "2 and 20" package, what is the downside? Take one of the original BSDs' what on earth does this mean noel.

"What surprised me most was the amount of leverage used by those like peleton-32 "

And that was partly what bought about the downfall of LTCM
