Global macro is a hedge fund strategy that bases its holdings - such as long and short positions in various equity, fixed income, currency, and commodities markets - primarily on top-down macroeconomic and political views of individual countries and asset classes. In the aftermath of the global financial crisis of 2007-09, global macro was one of the few investment strategies that delivered positive returns. Since then global markets have been driven almost solely by macroeconomic decision making; more so than at any time in recent years. Global Macro: Theory and Practice, edited by industry expert Andrew Rozanov, is the first comprehensive handbook and authoritative guide focusing exclusively on global macro strategies, designed for use by investment professionals involved in constructing and managing institutional portfolios. The book examines different strategies within the global macro sector, focusing on their unique risk-return characteristics and their role and place in an institutional portfolio. With contributions from a cross section of leading industry practitioners, chapters include:The Role of a Global Macro Strategist Emerging Markets in Global Macro Investing A Prime Broker s Perspective Systematic Strategies: A Quantitative Approach to Global Macro A Fund of Hedge Fund s Perspective The authoritative guide and reference tool for global macro investing, this book is essential for anyone who wants to be better informed when they make their asset allocation, portfolio construction and hedge fund selection decisions.

Review:

'Global Macro: Theory and Practice is an important primer for institutions seeking to understand macro from two sides of the looking glass: the view of practitioners like myself and the view of investors.
