Since 1998, hedge funds returns have beaten the S&P 500 by an impressive 7% per year. The hedge fund industry is now a $675 billion behemoth, but that’s no guarantee of success. A hedge fund is only as good as the person who runs it.

To succeed over the long haul, it is essential to understand the differences among various hedge fund strategies, because investment returns, volatility and risk vary enormously among the different strategies. Furthermore, the optimal entry and exit points for various strategies vary widely based on business cycles and economic conditions.

To assist you in understanding these differences, and teach you how to blend the various strategies, styles, and asset classes together to create more stable and higher long-term returns, Financial Research Associates is proud to present The Hedge Fund Styles and Strategies Symposium, scheduled for November 17-18, 2003 at the Hotel InterContinental—The Barclay in New York City. At this cutting edge conference, over two dozen industry leaders will teach you:

• The latest strategy trends and their long-term outlook
• When and how you can effectively forecast successful investment strategies
• A strategy-by-strategy investigation of what works and what doesn’t during various market conditions and business cycles
• How risks differ for each hedge fund investment strategy
• Why “pure” fixed income arbitrage should work in any market environment
• The pros and cons of global macro in today’s economic conditions
• The long-term outlook for recently successful CTAs
• How to achieve optimal portfolio diversification and how exposure should be allocated among various styles
• How fund of funds select their styles and what goes into manager selection
