An Evening with Professor John Cochrane


Chicago GSB PhD Alumni Club


Big points: hedge fund returns look like options, hedge fund betas are a lot bigger than you think, the effects of the option-like nature of hedge fund compensiation, and how do you form a portfolio of hedge funds. (Is fund A shorting something that fund B is going long, and that you already have in your portfolio? If so, what a great way to lose money fast!)
