Ms. Ahuja, author of recently published The Alpha Masters, will bring the secretive world of hedge funds into the light of day. As the authority that the biggest names in the business, including John Paulson, David Tepper, and Bill Ackman, go to before breaking major news, Ahuja has access to the innermost workings of the hedge fund industry.
For the first time, Ms. Ahuja will provide you with tangible, analytical insight into the psychology of the trade, the strategies and investment criteria serious money managers use to determine and evaluate their positions, and special guidance on how the reader can replicate this success themselves.
There are few people with access to the inner chambers of the hedge fund industry, and as a result it remains practically uncharted financial territory. Ms. Ahuja's presentation will change all that, shedding light on star fund managers like Ray Dalio, Marc Lasry, Jim Chanos, Sonia Gardner, Pierre Lagrange, and Tim Wong, and how exactly they consistently outperform the market.
Maneet Ahuja is CNBC's hedge fund specialist and a producer on Squawk Box. In 2011, she co-created and developed the network's "Delivering Alpha" hedge fund summit in conjunction with Institutional Investor and was awarded CNBC's prestigious Enterprise Award in 2009 for her groundbreaking coverage of the industry. She has covered the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and produces quarterly shows at the Department of Labor with former Federal Reserve Board chairman Alan Greenspan as well as U.S. Competitiveness Summits at Harvard Business School. Prior to joining CNBC in 2008, she was a part of the Wall Street Journal's Money & Investing team. She began her career on Wall Street in 2002 at age 17 in Citigroup's Corporate & Investment Banking division as a credit risk analyst.
Ms. Ahuja is one of Forbes magazine's 30 Under 30 (Jan. 2012), has been featured in Elle magazine's annual Genius issue (April 2011), and in 2010 was nominated for Crain's New York Business Forty Under 40 Rising Stars. Follow Maneet on twitter @WallStManeet.
Why are hedge funds such a mystery?
"There are a few key reasons, but foremost, the general public doesn't have the ability to invest in hedge funds because they are restricted to "accredited investors" under Regulation D of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
This usually means an individual with net worth of at least $1 million or annual income over $200,000.Also, hedge funds have only been around for less than a century. While there are a lot of mixed opinions--even among the investors profiled in the book--about what actually constitutes a hedge fund, the investment strategies are complex and believed by many to contain marks of genius.
Thus, hedge fund managers have historically shied away from publicly explaining their methods, not only because they are difficult to understand, but from fear of giving away the secret sauce."
