It has been a while since the last time we published an ebook, this one is special just like every ebook we post. The Hedge Fund Edge is an ebook written for investors and traders alike. A smart man once said “Investment in knowledge pays the best interest”, this ebook has interesting topics and if you read it whole, It’s guaranteed your life will never be the same.
“Move fast and break things, unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enogh.“MARK ZUCKERBERG
We have the ebook at the bottom for free download. But continue reading so that you can see some of the topics contained in the ebook, perhaps that will help you in deciding whether you get interested or not.
The hedge fund edge looks just like an ancient book, the wisdom in it is similar to that of Ti Chi scroll all the way from China! It was written by Mark Boucher and published by Wiley & Sons.
John Wiley & Sons have a long history of publishing books for investors and traders. The hedge fund edge is one of Wiley’s best sellers.
Excerpts from the introduction, ” This book is written for every investor or trader—large or small— who wants a methodology to consistently profit from the markets without incurring huge risks.
In this era of exploding U.S. and global stock markets, many investors are focusing most of their attention on returns, not on risk.
I can safely say that the methodologies advocated in this book offer highly pleasing potential returns.
Our newsletter to clients has shown average annual returns of over 32 percent per year since 1992, without a losing year and, more significantly, without a drawdown of over 10 percent (this has more than doubled this period).
During this same period, the funds I have consulted for have done even better in terms of both risk and return, with real money, investing millions of dollars globally.
And in researching the concepts on which these methodologies are based, my colleagues and I have gone back to the early 1900s to verify their rigor.
Thus while I am confident that the methodologies described here can enable you to pull consistently large profits from the markets, I also hope that the book sharpens your focus on two equally important factors of investment—risk and market understanding.”
