It will be interesting to see whether more fundamental funds (long-short equity, special situations, distressed debt) will start ...

Hi Monkeys, I will be an Investment Banking Summer Analyst at BX/LAZ/HLHZ this summer in the Restructuring group.

Disappointing that pump & dumping microcap stocks is still very unregulated but I was curious how common it is for international hedge funds? I've heard stories of HF managers using it to their advantage when a client asks to be out of the fund and receives it all in securities. ...
