This book was intense. Non-stop action and a thrill to read. I was skeptical at first because this is not my usual genre, but I found this book very entertaining and a definite page-turner. I would definitely recommend this to the ones that enjoy this genre, you should definitely read this book!

After managing a friends and family portfolio for several years, handling the ups and downs of the market and attracting more accredited investors, the fledging hedge fund firm has grown to the point where it is ready to make the bid to attract institutional investment.
But it’s a tough and competitive world out there. New hedge fund launches are up to the highest levels since before the financial crisis.
George Lucaci, senior managing director at brokerage firm Direct Access Partners, says that the preparation for a hedge fund’s first visit to an institutional investor has to start well in advance of the meeting.
“You get one chance,” Lucaci tells HedgeFund.net. That impression is critical because you have to get to the next meeting.”
A small fund has to commit to infrastructure, Lucaci says, “meaning all the operational integrity that an institutional investor needs.”
What’s more, he says, institutional investors want to see that founders have significant skin in the game; as much as 50% might be needed to make the investor feel comfortable with the new firm.
Pedigree is also key and, in that area, the competition is looking more daunting than ever.
Not only are there are a plethora of new launches, but many of those who are starting up these days have worthy pedigrees as the biggest Wall Street firms close down their proprietary trading desks in anticipation of new regulations.
“I think it’s more important who the manager is than if you have $30 million to $40 million. If the pedigree is right and you have the right background for the strategy, then you can’t say ‘you’re too small,’” Lucaci says.
But above all else, Lucaci wants to see hedge fund managers be able to articulate what it is that truly differentiates their strategy from all the other funds out there.
“Be able to say, almost professorially,” he says, “exactly how you create your alpha and how you manage your alpha. And do it in a way that you’re actually teaching your investor enough so that he can, in turn articulate, it to his or her investment committee.”
