Hedge Funds, Risk Management Jobs
Those interested in making a career in hedge funds or risk management can easily navigate through our dedicated section on efinancialcareers.com. Hedge funds are alternative investment methods for large capped individual players. Hedge funds deploy sophisticated strategies such as long-short, derivative positions, global macro, leverage etc. to generate high returns. Currently hedge funds do not come under the purview of SEC regulations and hence they have more autonomy in investment. But as per the US laws, hedge fund investors should be accredited-net worth of at least $1 million, earn a minimum annual income and significant amount of investment knowledge.
Since the Hedge Fund Mangers indulge in speculative investment, beta of most hedge funds is very high. Risk management is therefore a central function in hedge funds.
The market for hedge funds has steadily picked up since 2008 and made a positive come-back. 2013 witnessed the estimated size of the global hedge fund industry at $2.4 trillion.
A hedge fund job is self remunerating and provides you with fast paced, high risk role. Jobs are available in either sector in the UK, China, Ireland, Germany and other countries. The U.S., however, remains the most impressive market with job opportunities in reputed firms such as Synechrone Inc., Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank.
