About:

AllAboutAlpha.com is an online strategic information service for the asset management and hedge fund industries.  Like a research firm, we immerse ourselves in the latest academic research, scan the headlines and provide subscribers with what we think they need to know as the asset management industry enters a period of rapid evolution.  Like a “blog,” we deliver those insights in a manner that is easy to digest, frequent and tempered by our own unique view of the world.

AllAboutAlpha.com is not a media firm or general hedge fund portal.  Instead, we partner with these companies to shine a focused light on issues of a strategic importance to asset managers.  We do not cover hedge fund launches, “people-moves,” or the performance or profiles of specific funds.   We do not provide information on how to launch a hedge fund, legal or operational issues, or the investment outlook for particular strategies.  We focus solely on uncovering the common denominators that tie together seemingly disparate developments to help our subscribers anticipate and manage change.

With nearly 1,000 archived articles and entries, and new material added daily, AllAboutAlpha.com is research tool designed to be an “early warning” system for asset managers, service providers, and investors.  Whether you simply visit on a daily basis to read our latest thoughts, or whether you subscribe to our Knowledge Base of archives and “research dossiers” as you create reports, pitches, internal research materials or publications, we hope you find AllAboutAlpha.com a valuable addition to your other research sources.
