How does a Hedge Fund really work?

Many courses exist to help you understand hedge fund strategies, portfolio management, trading techniques etc.  But what they don’t cover is how a hedge fund actually works.

In this course, we help you to understand how hedge funds are structured, some popular strategies, who invests in them, who does what both internally and externally, technology aspects of running a fund, and lastly, what can go wrong.


The course will give you insights into the infrastructure, functions and roles in a fund and its interaction with its service providers. The estimated completion time is 90 minutes including 40 minutes of videos.
