Chapter 2: Major Hedge Fund Strategies

2

Major Hedge Fund Strategies

Hedge funds can be classified in a number of different ways, e.g. by particular asset, geographical location of strategy or industrial sector. The most common hedge fund classification is by strategy and then by style within that strategy. There are three major hedge fund strategies, namely relative value, event-driven and tactical, each with its own individual strategy styles.

This chapter introduces the most common investment strategies within each of the major hedge fund strategy styles. Emphasis is placed on equity related strategies since these will be the focus of more detailed quantitative modelling and analysis in later chapters.
