Professor Stephen Brown discusses hedge funds as an investment at the Centre for International Finance and Regulation seminar in Sydney, Australia
Excerpt from Investment Magazine -- "According to Brown, a perfect storm which started in the GFC led to a misunderstanding of the value proposition of hedge funds. Returns in recent years in hedge fund strategies have been poor compared to the market, but he emphasised they are meant to be uncorrelated, and a diversified hedge fund strategy still made sense for intuitional investors. 'People worry about fees, people worry about expenses, but after all that, after they are all accounted for, they remain a value proposition. This was true before the crisis and they remain a value proposition after,' Brown said."
