2 and 20
2 and 20? A friend ate at a top restaurant. As she related the gourmet experience, I wondered if economists might claim she was ripped off. Nearby was a more famous restaurant which served more clients and had a longer track record. Eating there cost a few dollars compared to hundreds where she ate. I asked about her irrational decision avoiding “cheaper” food but she said while aware of “lower” fees, differences in SKILL and VALUE were accurate in comparing three star Michelin restaurants with McDonalds. Incentives work. I avoid funds that don’t charge...

Hedge Fund Test
Do you have what it takes to run a quality hedge fund? The Hedge Fund Aptitude Test: 1) Portfolio strategy: Today your ten biggest long positions all went bankrupt and the ten largest shorts were bought out at enormous premiums by overcapitalized private equity funds. You i) smash your phone, trash the Bloomberg and jump out of the window ii) write an op-ed for the WSJ on “broken markets”, appear on CNBC and line up several conference keynote gigs iii) bit of noise in the markets today – good thing my diversified hedge fund actually is diversified iv) move the...

Hedge fund pay
Good hedge funds provide major economic benefits to society. High net worth individuals gain more capital for philanthropy. Foundations committed to alternatives have more for worthy charitable causes. Pensions 100% invested in quality hedge funds have better funded liabilities so avoid the need for benefit reductions, raised retirement ages and capital contributions. $5 chalkboard = index fund: $500 Apple iPad = hedge fund. The value, skill, functionality and consistency of performance makes hedge funds MUCH CHEAPER than passive investments on a long term value added comparison. University...

Smart beta
Alternative beta? I invest in good hedge funds. 90% of hedge fund managers are NOT good so I put client capital in the 10% of hedge funds that are good. The average is no indication of the manager universe since the data set mixes hoards of fools with a few geniuses. Why would anyone invest in products that purport to deliver the returns of the “average” hedge fund when the average manager is useless? Portable alpha is so five minutes ago. The “new” solution is alternative beta. Conferences are being organized, presentations prepared and white papers published so...

Sports hedge fund
Sports hedge fund? Unlike stocks, bonds, real estate and commodities, sports results do not depend on the economy. Sports bets offer arbitrages and mispricings like “efficient” financial markets. Diversify PROPERLY with uncorrelated performance. Focus on building return streams. Find alpha in sports. Financial experts say skill doesn’t exist. Maybe PelĂ©, Jack Nicklaus, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Babe Ruth and the greatest sportsperson ever, Donald Bradman, were just lucky flukes like hedge fund managers Jim Simons, George Soros, Warren Buffett, Benjamin Graham, Jesse...

Pension underfunding
Pension fund absolute liabilities require absolute performance. Most pensions take too much market risk. Why let funded status and income streams be affected by volatile stocks and interest rates? If you invest prudently with the world’s BEST managers there is no need to reduce benefits or increase capital contributions. Great absolute return managers deliver what every pension needs. +8% each and every year to meet actuarial assumptions. Expected asset class returns have nothing to do with funding liabilities. What the economy does should NOT effect portfolio growth. Manager due...

Active versus passive
Active versus passive is skill versus non-skill. Index funds are just low frequency trading strategies with horrific drawdowns and abysmal risk adjusted returns. Name any business where passive wins over time. Do you really believe NO-ONE has investment skill? Should you risk your wealth in cheap trash or expensive quality? Active is the only choice in the REAL world because “passive” funds track ACTIVE decisions by index construction firms. THERE IS NO LAZY ROUTE TO WEALTH. True buy and hold? The original components of the S&P in 1957 outperformed the actively managed...

Best hedge fund
Best hedge fund? Most investors have never heard of the greatest hedge fund manager ever. Clients’ performance needs require me to conduct onsite due diligence on the world’s top investors. It’s my job to find the top funds. I just visited the offices of the best ever hedge fund. When is PAST performance indicative of FUTURE returns? When the manager is skilled and that CAN be determined with proper analysis. For naive asset classes history provides zero forward looking evidence. Skill persists but luck runs out. Don’t let the stock or bond market wreck your...

High frequency trading
High frequency investor? The highest LONG TERM returns come from SHORT TERM strategies. My clients’ preferred holding period is forever but it’s rarely feasible and never optimal. A substantial allocation to HFT is essential for all investors’ portfolios including yours. People fear what they don’t understand so they fear HFT. I fear losing money so made time to understand a NEW source of return for my clients. Is that wrong? Invest across the holding period continuum. We live in a high frequency world. Low frequency trader Warren Buffett massively...
