Hedge funds have attracted lots of interest recently by investors,
the press and regulators, in that order. We introduce and define hedge funds, dispel some commonly held misconceptions, explain why they have outperformed especially in a difficult market environment, discuss their characteristics and strategies, present an overview of the hedge fund industry today, and introduce funds of hedge funds. We will focus on roles and strategies that are particularly geared to individuals with engineering
