A study by Mark Shore, Chief Operating Officer, VK Capital Inc. (GSB 1998)

Mark will discuss how alternative asset allocations within a traditional asset portfolio using hedge funds and futures can improve risk-adjusted returns. He will also discuss the proper metrics to measure risk-adjusted returns so that you are in fact benefiting from the diversification.
If you are a portfolio manager or hedge fund manager, this lecture will provide you with the leading thoughts on risk analysis. Mark's recent article is included in Wiley & Sons Publication: Hedge Funds: Insights in Performance Measurement, Risk Analysis, and Portfolio Allocation (2005).
