Due Diligence Forum summary

The funds industry is in the middle of a quiet revolution in the way that investments are structured and managed. The traditional battle lines of relative return versus absolute return are being eroded daily and the players are reinventing themselves with new offerings for the more dynamic world we live in.

It also looks to the future, examining the role of synthetic hedge fund of funds and what portable alpha may look like.
