Hedge Fund Handbook Released: ‘A Guide to Fund Management’ News – There is a new book on the market for those who are planning to set up their own hedge fund. Daniel Broby’s ‘A Guide to Fund Management’ is published by Risk Books, a specialist in hedge fund and risk related publication.

“I wanted to capture all aspects of running a firm in one book.” Daniel Broby, Chief Investment Officer at Silk Invest, said, “I have spent far too much of my career reading industry white papers and compliance manuals. I wrote the sort of book that I wanted to buy when I first became a Chief Investment Officer over ten years ago.”

The book’s text is complimented by diagrams and bullet points that simplify the vast array of information.

Broby has had a long and successful career in both fund management and the hedge fund industry. He set up the first regulated and listed hedge fund in the Danish market for Bankinvest and launched a number of alternative funds for the investment arm of the Russian giant Renaissance Capital. After that that he branched out on his own.

“The advice is equally applicable for hedge funds as it is for established fund managers, especially as relates to the client centric firm. Essentially, it is a ‘how to do it’ manual that covers everything from the industry, investment process, through the front, middle and back office.” Broby said.
