Highlights week #39


September is a busy month for webinar-watchers! A lot of subjects are discussed, for example “Modern Monetary Theory” or “Small Caps“. A lot of research was posted last week and in this blogpost we will highlight a few we think are must-reads. 

Refining alpha in the hedge fund world


“The current challenging market environment suggests a greater need than ever for alternatives. Hedge funds, which target differentiated, positive absolute returns, provide clear potential benefits. However, institutional investors have historically been, on average, disappointed. The main frustrations have been threefold:

▪ Returns with limited upside capture of equity markets but which still participate in the downside;
▪ Limited transparency and liquidity;
▪ Relatively high fees.

However, we believe hedge funds can play an important role.”

Making Hard Choices in Extraordinary Times

Renewed equity market volatility highlights the need for portfolio breadth.

“U.S. markets have sold off sharply after reaching record highs, driven by a correction in large‑cap technology stocks. With equity markets showing resilience throughout the summer, investors have raised concerns about market valuations, with some believing equities are priced for perfection. Given the weakness has centered on the FAANG1 complex, we address whether the recent market sell‑off implies the end of growth leadership.”
