"The entry of opportunistic hedge funds into the energy sector is creating a sea of change for the industry. Fueled by pension funds and institutional investors, hedge funds are attracted to the petroleum industry because the current price volatility provides generous returns for their investors. However, these investments are not without risk. Gary Vasey and Peter Fusaro explain the ins and outs of it all in their insightful narrative."
Don Stowers, Editor, Oil & Gas Financial Journal
"Peter Fusaro and Gary Vasey write about energy and environmental hedge fund markets with greater style, aplomb, and insight that any other observers of financial high streets worldwide.... Outlining some of the early and provocative details of an industry′s youthful achievement and potential, it is likely that this exposition by two of the energy and financial world′s most credible experts will become a seminal work."
Ethan L. Cohen, Director, Utility and Energy Technology, UtiliPoint International, Inc.
