I took the Henley Hedge Fund course in preparation of my desire to become a COO in the future. The class gave me a practical overview on each function of the Hegde Fund business across strategies. Combined with my hands on experience, I am now the COO of an equity L/S fund!

I joined the program to better understand the needs, challenges and requirements faced by fund managers in a fast moving and ever changing alternative asset industry. The insights from leading specialists and experts gathered by the program were very valuable, providing both theoretical but also real life experiences. We were also able to forge meaningful relationships with other fellow students, by sharing each other’s views and exposure from different backgrounds.

While exploring my next career challenge, curious about how hedge fund clients operate their business after over 10 years working on the service provider side, I took the course. I’ve not just gained a holistic hands-on real-practice understanding of hedge funds from setup to management, but also met amazing people in the industry. The program provides networking opportunities to connect with global alumni and instructors, very fortunate to be part of it!

After 10 years in financial industry, I took the program to brush up my knowledge.  The course demonstrates how much the market has shifted with all the new asset classes to trade, provides in-depth views on Japanese regulation, taxation and legal matters which were all scattered dots in my mind before. The program is truly market-oriented and delivers practical knowledge. I have to say this is the strength of this unique program.

Taking the Henley Executive Hedge Fund Program was the perfect decision for my mid-career break. Having spent 16 years in the travel analytics space, I was keen to apply my skillset to a new industry. Not only did I gain a broad understanding of the Asian hedge funds, I benefited from excellent guest speakers and built wonderful long-term relationships.

As an IT professional becoming more involved in the business side of Hedge Funds, this course was extremely valuable.  The modules on every aspect of a Hedge Fund (including IT) were tremendous.  You also have access to industry leaders not only in a teaching setting, but in social situations giving you access to their wisdom in an amazing way.  I am very grateful Henley provided this opportunity.

Facing unemployment I took this course looking to add to my financial industry knowledge, network and hopefully find a lead into a new job. I was successful at all three. This course puts all the pieces of the hedge fund puzzle together in a clean and concise way, while giving students the opportunity to interact with professionals from around the industry. Put in the work and you could find yourself on the path to the buy side.
