Praise for How to Create & Manage a Hedge Fund

A Professional′s Guide

"True to its title, McCrary provides a clearly written and complete overview of the issues associated with starting and running a hedge fund. And for those outside the hedge fund world, the book′s successful marriage of finance theory and market practice with the author′s own vast experience makes for an enjoyable and thoroughly informative read."

–Christopher L. Culp, Managing Director, CP Risk Management LLC, and Adjunct Associate Professor of Finance, Graduate School of Business, The University of Chicago

"McCrary has drawn from his experience on Wall Street, LaSalle Street, and at the academy in crafting this encyclopedia for hedge fund managers and advisors. Covering the field in plainspoken business prose, he demystifies the secretive world of collective private investment. Whether you earn your living in finance or law, in accounting or marketing, if the subject is hedge funds, you must read this book."

–Patrick Daugherty, Partner, Foley & Lardner

"Building on his broad experience in the securities and derivatives markets, McCrary offers a well–researched guide to starting and running a hedge fund business . . . he tackles everything from the mundane, like regulations and accounting, to the complex, like investment techniques and risk management, in an articulate and insightful manner . . . a necessary handbook for money managers and investors alike."
