Description - Market Neutral Strategies by Bruce I. Jacobs
An inside view of what makes market neutral strategies tick and how they can be implemented Market neutral strategies have gained attention for their potential to deliver positive returns regardless of the direction of underlying markets. As these strategies have built a record of good performance in recent years, their benefits have become apparent. Market Neutral Strategies draws on the wisdom and experience of professional practitioners to describe strategies that are being utilized by some of today's leading institutional investors. This book provides readers with an insider's view of what makes these strategies work and how they can be implemented successfully. Topics covered include long--short equity and convertibles, fixed income and merger arbitrage; the tax and ERISA implications of market neutral investing; and the failure of two notorious "market neutral" ventures, Askin Capital Management and Long--Term Capital Management.
