You can be a hedge fund investor But why would you

first_imgNo related posts. Earlier this year, Goldman Sachs Asset Management announced that it would launch a new mutual fund that — apparently — will bring the joy of hedge fund investing to the masses. For as little as $1,000, the Multi-Manager Alternatives Fund (GMAMX) allows mom-and-pop investors to put their life savings into some of Wall Street’s riskiest and most expensive products. This “fund of funds” will, according to its prospectus, let investors gain exposure to the trading strategies of hedge funds.The obvious question is: “Why would investors want that?”Despite all the media coverage, glitz and glam of hedge funds, they have not done well for their investors. They have high — some say excessively high — fees; their short- and long-term performance has been poor.Before delving into the details, let’s define exactly what we are discussing: Hedge funds are private investment partnerships. The general partner is typically the fund manager (on occasion it includes his financial backers). The investors in the fund are the limited partners, normally institutions and accredited investors. This partnership structure typically has a max of 99 limited partners. Unlike mutual funds or brokerages, hedge funds are mostly unregulated.The global hedge fund industry manages $2.13 trillion, or about 1.1 percent of all assets held by financial institutions, according to the Coalition of Private Investment Companies. Given what a relatively small asset class this is, hedge funds certainly receive an excess of media attention. Many hedge fund managers have become billionaires; perhaps this — plus their reputations as the smartest guys in the room — is why they have captured the investing public’s imagination.Most hedge funds are “go anywhere” funds — they can own derivatives, mortgage-backed securities, credit-default swaps, structured products and illiquid assets. They also can use nearly unlimited leverage.Gee, that sounds kinda hazardous. Why would anyone want to assume all of that risk? Originally, hedge funds earned their outsize compensation by, well, hedging their investments. This is a risk-mitigation strategy that can reduce the gains investors reap when markets are up but avoids much of the losses when markets are down.That no longer seems to be the case with modern hedge funds. They have morphed into “absolute return” funds — more aggressive, greater leverage, more speculative, all in an attempt to generate returns that outperform their benchmarks. Not surprisingly, they have become riskier than the overall market.Given these increased risks (and higher fees), how have hedge funds performed?By most measures, not well. They have failed to keep up with major averages when markets were up — and they got mangled (like nearly everyone else) during the 2008-09 downturn. It turns out, most hedge funds are not very hedged.The latest performance data (via the HFRX Global Hedge Fund Index) reveal that hedge funds haven’t fared well at all: They returned a mere 3.5 percent in 2012, while the S&P 500-stock index gained 16 percent. Over the past five years, and the hedge fund index lost 13.6 percent, while the indices added 8.6 percent. That’s as of the end of 2012; it has only gotten worse in 2013. Most hedge funds have fallen even further behind their benchmarks this year, gaining 5.4 percent vs. the market’s rally of 15.4 percent. As a source of comparison, the average mutual fund is up 14.8 percent.Which brings us to fees. Most hedge funds charge an industry standard “2 and 20.” This is a 2 percent annual management fee against the original investment, plus 20 percent of the investment profits. Compare this with annual mutual fund fees, which average about 1.44 percent. Fees for an index ETF are typically under 0.25 percent.Those outsize hedge fund fees are an enormous drag on performance. But they do create wealth — for the managers. “Two and twenty” as the industry calls it, is why even middling hedge fund managers can become billionaires. According to Simon Lack, author of “The Hedge Fund Mirage,” this fee arrangement is effectively a wealth transference mechanism, moving dollars from investors to managers. As he puts it: “While the hedge fund industry has generated fabulous wealth and created many fortunes, it has largely done so for itself.”Lack is no ordinary critic — he spent his career at JPMorgan Chase, where he allocated more than $1 billion to emerging hedge fund managers. Some of the statistics he amassed in the process are nothing short of astonishing:— From 1998 to 2010, hedge fund managers earned $379 billion in fees. The investors of their funds earned only $70 billion in investing gains.— Managers kept 84 percent of investment profits, while investors netted only 16 percent.— As many as one-third of hedge funds are funded through feeder funds and/or fund of funds, which tack on yet another layer of fees. This brings the industry fee total to $440 billion — that’s 98 percent of all the investing gains, leaving the people whose capital is at risk with only 2 percent, or $9 billion.What other concerns should investors have? Hedge funds are not especially liquid. Many are “gated” — meaning there are only small windows when you can withdraw your money. They typically have a high minimum investment and often require investors keep their money in the fund for at least one year.Why would anyone in their right mind invest in these funds?So many kids dream of becoming LeBron James, but most will never play in the NBA (to say nothing of amassing championship rings). So it also goes with hedge fund investors. Most of the more than 10,000 hedge funds out in the wild are not big moneymakers for their investors. Investors tend to discover “hot” mutual fund managers just after a successful run and just before the inescapable force of mean reversion is about to kick in. Similarly, hedge fund darlings are born at exactly the same moment in their trajectory.John Paulson is a classic example. The bet against subprime mortgages that he and Paolo Pellegrini created in 2005-06 put them on the map and turned Paulson into a billionaire. He became widely known, and the money flowed in. Within a few years, Paulson was managing a slew of hedge funds, and his assets under management had swelled to $36 billion. Soon after, he hit the skids, with losses of 52 percent in one fund and 35 percent in another.But the lure of the superstar manager — the guy who can make you fabulously wealthy – continues to attract capital. In 1997, $118 billion was managed by hedgies; as of the first quarter of 2012, that had grown to $2.04 trillion.Investors have also embraced other non-financial remunerations: Client-only market commentary, access to star managers, attendance at exclusive conferences. These perks generate cocktail party bragging rights, despite the poor performance.But what about the top-performing funds, such as Jim Simon’s Renaissance Technologies or Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater? Sure, give them a call.The Lebron James of hedge fund managers are few and far between. This is the crux of the issue with hedge funds. A small percentage have significantly outperformed the markets; an even smaller percentage have done so after fees are taken into account. While we all know which ones have outperformed over the past few decades, no one has even the slightest clue which ones will outperform over the next one. It is akin to picking out from the ranks of high school sophomores who will be the next NBA superstar. Best of luck with that.Every fund in the world warns that past performance is no guarantee of future results. It is too bad that investors refuse to believe it.Barry Ritholtz is CEO of FusionIQ, a quantitative research firm.

She began making it years before publicly accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape, and in the movie, a girl is raped by a butcher who then cuts off her feet. But the rape scene isn’t about the media mogul, De la Huerta said, nor does it depict the assaults she said took place in 2010. (Paz De La Huerta Inc. via AP) center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Actress Paz de la Huerta has started a crowdfunding campaign to finish a movie she began making years before she publicly accused Harvey Weinstein of rape.The movie “Valley of Tears” is her take on the Hans Christian Andersen story “The Red Shoes,” about a little girl with a pair of enchanted shoes. The story is tragic; the shoes force the girl to dance until she asks an executioner to cut off her feet. A 1948 film set the story in the world of dance; a ballerina seeks to be the best by wearing the shoes and faces the same fate.De la Huerta told The Associated Press that she took her version of the story even further. The girl is raped by a butcher who then cuts off her feet.But the rape scene is not about the media mogul, she said, nor does it depict the assaults she said took place in 2010. De la Huerta said she wanted to include the scene, in part, because she had an experience on another film where she felt a sexual assault scene was not shown from victim’s perspective.“I wanted to show the rape scene from the point of view of a woman that had actually been raped,” she said in an interview.Prosecutors and police in New York are investigating de la Huerta’s accusations that Weinstein raped her twice in her apartment. The “Boardwalk Empire” actress said she could not comment on the investigation.Weinstein has denied any nonconsensual sex with the actress or other women who have accused him of assault.De la Huerta said she began making the movie 12 years ago. She said she has one scene left to shoot and then must edit the film. She hopes to raise as much as $500,000.De la Huerta said in making the film, she drew on both the emotional trauma of her encounters with Weinstein and her struggle with physical pain after she fractured her tailbone during an on-set accident in 2011 where she was struck by an ambulance. In some of the scenes in her movie, she said she had to dance while in extreme pain.“I shot while I was in horrific pain, and you can see it on my face — those scenes I’m in tremendous pain myself. They really reflect where I was at the time.”She had a surgery a few years later that she said “saved her life,” and she also wanted to reflect the feeling of redemption in the film — so she is adding a twist that will make the movie a bit more positive than its artistic predecessors.“I really believe this film is about the end of suffering,” she said.last_img read more

politically incorrect thing to sayhe is the first performing chief minister Kerala has seen in several decades with all his inherent Congressman-like faults His style of work as a chief minister who is on his toes and ready to meet people face to face has set alarm bells ringing amongst the political class as a wholebecause he is setting a dangerous precedent The bureaucracy is equally upset

mysterious coincidences it happens that even as the Supreme Court was ruling last week that it was constitutionally valid to force private schools to reserve 25 per cent of their seats for poor childrenI was trying to exercise this right This was on behalf of someone who is illiterate and poor and in desperate need to get his son into a Delhi school He sought my help because the government school in his neighbourhood had promised to admit his son if he could make a donation of Rs 25000 The story he told me was that the school official who asked him for this donation said he could bring it down to Rs 13000 if he could not pay the full amount When I heard about this bargainingI got suspicious and offered to go to the school with him It was a largefine looking school in the heart of the city filled with the din of children making merry during a midday break Outside the Principals officea small army of anxious parents waited but we managed to fight our way through and I was introduced to the man who had asked for the donation He looked uneasy when I brought up the subject of the bargaining and said nervously that there had been some misunderstanding This was a government schoolhe pointed outso the question of donations did not arise Butthere was a long list of children waiting to be admitted so if there was still a vacancy in the middle of Mayhe would try and do something to help No donation needed My reason for recounting this story is to make the point that the Supreme Courts endorsement of the right to education law will make absolutely no difference Both government and private schools will find ways of admitting only those children whose parents can afford the donations that the law technically makes illegal The children of the poor will continue to be deprived of a good education and it goes without saying that their parents will be too poor to go to court to fight long legal battles for their rights The Right to Education Act is a bad law It was described by Lant Pritchett of Harvards Kennedy School as massively ill-conceived in an interview to this newspaper and Professor Pritchett was not exaggerating The singular achievement of this law will be to increase the powers of petty officials to meddle in the handful of private schools that offeralbeit at a pricea relatively high standard of education What we need is not more official meddling but lessexcept in government schools in which a great deal more meddling is needed to ensure that abysmal standards improve Butthe clever little officials who man the bastions of government in our sadly illiterate land confine their attentions to private schools for reasons that should be obvious So the Indian school system is defined by two characteristics that are probably unique to it Private schools are constantly under siege from inspectors of the most needless kind who can often only be satisfied if a hefty bribe comes their way Andgovernment schools are left to provide standards of education so appalling that most children leave school without being able to read a book I know this from empirical research as I make it a point on my travels to visit as many schools as I can The truth is that even if every private school in this country was diligent about filling its 25 per cent quota for destitute childrenit will make no difference The only way to bring about revolutionary changes in Indian education is if government schools improve in a revolutionary way There is nothing in the RTE that provides for this to happen which is why I agree with Professor Pritchett when he describes the new law as massively ill-conceived.

of music reality show Indian Idol the country had found its new sweetheart He was destined for bigger things in Bollywood and beyond we were told and next year onwards the audition queues only got longer More music reality shows sprouted such as X Factor Fame Gurukul and more recently The Stage; forgotten singers and actors became judges; production budgets increased and the audience was delivered a sob story a day And then one day we had had enough and the TRPs dipped Indian Idol too packed up its bags as reality TV suffered a blow According to data collected by BARC India from December 31 2016 to January 6 2017 not a single reality show made it to the top five list Fiction dominated the small screen At a time when reality shows are stooping to new lows with saffron-clad godmen allegedly throwing their pee at contestants Indian Idol has made a comeback Thankfully More from the world of Entertainment: Aired on weekends over two hours on Sony Indian Idol in 2017 has managed to balance talent excellent production and human interest stories in a way it didn’t earlier From LV Revanth who lent his voice to a song in Baahubali to Carnatic singer Maalavika Sundar to Jeli Kayi a singer from Arunachal Pradesh who can sing in male and female voice to the untrained raw voice of Khuda Baksh from Muktsar Punjab – this season can easily thrive on the strength of its contestants This edition also sees the return of the original judges – music director Anu Malik playback singer Sonu Nigam and filmmaker-choreographer Farah Khan Surprisingly they are tamer in approach never nasty less dramatic and with real feedback – none of that abstract vague conversation about taking “it to another level” In the “Grand Premier” round last weekend the production quality was outstanding with each performance – good bad and average – standing out for the sets and the lights Even Nigam pointed out how live shows of established musicians lack such shine Also read:Shah

get an inch back is to make people believe there is no difference between it and Modi What better way to achieve similarity than to get the BJP to enforce the very policy that brought it down Related News There is a restructuring of the economy underway by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and this is not just short-term cyclical stuff The restructuring involves a change in the socialist mindset and despite all the faults of this government Modi’s first year has been remarkably good You may not know it or believe it but the revolution being ushered in while not quite here will get there Labour laws are being reformed in a major way Once the land acquisition bill is passed India will finally begin to be competitive Even if the Congress’s obstinacy prevents the passage of the land bill there are encouraging signs that “land reform” maygo the labour reform way That is it willbe implemented on a state-by-state basis That is to be preferred Let the Congress-ruled states fall even further behind in termsof growth for the aam aurat Apne aapsamajh aa jayegi (they’ll learn) The biggest fault of the UPA government was high inflation Starting in 2007 andcontinuing for the next six years seven-year CPI inflation averaged the second-highest ever — 102 per cent almost equalto the highest 103 per cent in 1996 Compared to that inflation in April 2015 was a low 49 per cent At first glance this might indicate the influence of declining oil food and commodity prices However that interpretation is not entirely correct Seasonally adjusted six-month inflation was 5 per cent in June 2014 62 per cent in September 2014 and 43 per cent in October 2014 Brent oil was $103 in August 2014 and $95 in September 2014 It is another story as to whether the Modi government has been able to get the message of its success across This may have to do with some of its self-induced failures One failure I want to discuss in detail is retrospective tax or tax terrorism (TT) The “structural change” election result of May 2014 can be viewed partly as a protest against TT It was widely predicted and recommended that repeal of the retrospective tax would be the first and lowest hanging fruit of economic reform After all the BJP had invented the phrase “tax terrorism” and included it in its 2014 manifesto Hence it was surprising when the government shied away from making any effort to dismantle the dreaded retrospective tax legislation in the July 2014 interim budget But hope still remained Therefore when Finance Minister Arun Jaitley presented the budget in February this year while he explicitly ruled out retrospective taxes in future hope sprang eternal that at worst there would be a benign neglect of past cases This was more reasonable because the government had also not pursued the TT cases it had lost The nation wants to know why the BJP allowed big-time TT to creep in when it instigated retrospective MAT taxes against FIIs I have asked many individuals about their best interpretation of why the BJP indulged in “apne pair pe kulhadi (hit your own foot with an axe)” No one has provided an answer So was it just a case of legacy of continuing with the past because that is how we are and always have been Yes that is the best answer I can come up with and it is not as “un-sinister” as it sounds The Congress has ruled India for nearly 60 of the last 68 years That is legacy What that means is most if not all Indian industrialists are beholden to it What that means is most if not all of the senior Indian bureaucracy is obligated to the Congress for its career The Congress with dynasty but rudderless and leaderless is desperate for a change in its fortunes The best and only way for the Congress to get an inch back is to make people believe there is no difference between it and Modi “The more things change the more they remain the same” is the repetitive mantra you hear from the ConBhakts What better way to achieve similarity than to get the BJP to enforce the very policy that brought it down So the cabal gets together and drafts the policy Start with the MAT continue with land acquisition who knows soon the bureaucracy will be recommending reinforcing NREGA and an even more enhanced “food security” bill Assume I am right about there being Congress moles in various layers of the system Assume they did bring to Jaitley and Modi’s attention the “legacy” needs of the retrospective tax Why did the BJP have to accept this Trojan horse One doesn’t need to be a lawyer or even an economist to recognise that a retrospective tax is terrorism And certainly Modi and the BJP benefited enormously from the Congress’s operation of this terror But continuing to do the same — is that logical or beyond stupid Some say we have to treat FIIs with kid gloves because they finance our deficits?
