The June edition of Modern Trader, our second annual hedge fund issue, takes a broad measure of the hedge fund space, including recent trends and key players. In “Hedge funds under siege,” analysts from Preqin examine recent money flows and opportunities in private debt. In “Beyond the tear sheet,” EMM’s research team dives deep into the due diligence process of allocating to managers and provides valuable red flags to watch for that every investor should know.
We also highlight trends in data collection and research that offer efficiencies to the hedge fund world (see “Woozle’s research: Systematic scuttlebutt & human intelligence,” and “AlphaSense: Making sense in a sea of noise,” pages 26 and 27).
We also go back and catch up with a couple of high-profile hedge fund managers we spoke to a year ago. In “Scaramucci’s 10-Q,” we talk with Skybridge Capital’s Anthony Scaramucci about the new administration and his potential role in it and in “Malachite: Next stop, $1 billion AUM we reacquaint ourselves with this innovative hedge fund.
Finally, we lie down on the couch with Decision Coach Denise Shull (see “Decision neuroscience”) who discusses how traders can use their emotions to make better trading decisions rather than attempt to ignore them.
Our market focus is energy: Our contributors provide a broad view of the fundamentals of the sector in addition to our deep dive into crude oil analysis in “Crude’s new normal.”
