Investors Passport to Hedge Fund Profits

It’s time for a book on international investing that’s dedicated to enlightening traders on international portfolio alternatives and the sound strategies that can be used to best negotiate them. To that end, we present Investor’s Passport to Hedge Fund Profits, which delivers the “straight story” on looking elsewhere for the next portfolio addition. Rather than trot out a re-treaded version of “International Investing for Everyone,” the book demonstrates how the active, cutting-edge trading strategies that have become de rigeur for use in the domestic markets can be applied as effectively to overseas markets. The book de-mystifies international investing for the active trader, giving him the tools by which to effectively profit from the remaining two-thirds of the world’s “blue chip” companies, as well as from a wide variety of other stock types and asset classes.

Throughout these pages, we skillfully demonstrate how active, cutting-edge trading strategies used in domestic markets can be applied effectively overseas. Opening with discussions of the importance of international investing in today’s turbulent markets, this reliable resource quickly moves on to examine the macro relationships between the different asset classes within a given country and shows you how to view those asset classes-stocks, bonds, currencies, and commodities-as a complete picture of what is happening in the investing world.

- Addresses the application of strategies to international portfolio development and management
- Clearly defines different financial markets and reveals how they can best be accessed and traded
- Features information on currency trading and investing in foreign real estate as well as insights on swaps, futures trading, and risk management

Praise For Investor’s Passport to Hedge Fund Profits

Investor’s Passport to Hedge Fund Profits is a well written book that should be in the personal library of those investors seriously interested in gaining “Global Market” investment expertise. In many respects this is the most insightful, effective and comprehensive book on International Investing that I have ever read.

Investor’s Passport to Hedge Fund Profits demystifies global access for the investor who has always felt that he is on the outside, looking in at the opportunities presented by foreign markets. Starting with a compelling illustration of the basis for going overseas, the book does a great job of educating the reader on the successful management of both individual asset classes as well as the entire portfolio that is comprised when those asset classes are assembled in concert with one another. This book is especially timely, as investors will have to look farther, literally, than they’ve ever had to before in order to realize competitive returns
