About this title


This ground-breaking executive report provides you with a complete operational risk methodology specifically tailored to hedge fund management. Stay ahead of the anticipated requirements on systemic risks, operational systems and potential capital adequacy by applying the principles and recommendations presented in this accessible report.

Capital adequacy allocation is not yet a legal requirement for hedge funds, but given the increase in global investigations, the high failure rate and lack of consistent benchmarking standards, the idea of financial reserves and enforced operational risk management are appealing prospects for the hedge fund investment community.

Most hedge funds have superficial risk management but very few apply a thorough operational risk methodology. Independent consulting risk manager, Armelle Guizot, presents in-depth classifications of the range of operational and systemic risks and provides you with a benchmark to allocate capital reserves to support them.

Based on Guizot’s operational and market risk experience gained through working with high profile clients such as JP Morgan, Sumitomo Mitsui and Merrill Lynch, you will find that this report:

  • covers all the major operational and regulatory risks associated with hedge funds;
  • provides infrastructural risk maps;
  • introduces a simple methodology to calculate capital adequacy;
  • incorporates industry risk management surveys to benchmark against peers;
  • encourages fund managers to think ahead.

This essential report provides hedge fund managers with a complete set of risk principles and standards to avoid operational risks and potential financial losses. At the same time it proves a valuable resource for those without advanced quantitative knowledge, allowing you to quickly grasp the hidden risks of hedge funds.
