This is an effort to create a forum for the Seeking Alpha community of readers and writers to discuss hedge funds. Earlier on this blog, I asked myself the question, "what do hedge funds do?". Now, I am interested in opening up for Q&A on the topic of hedge funds.
- What specific experiences do you have investing in hedge funds?
- How has that worked out relative to your expectations on the way in?
- What, if anything, are they good for and how do you assess them?
- Any particular opportunities that you see in limited partnerships in hedge funds?
- What strategies will perform best in the future and why?
Please ask or answer anything of interest to you on this topic. Personally, I am interested in understanding hedge funds' strengths and weaknesses, learning about how they impact the broader market, and in the secondary market for limited partnerships.
