Gray Fox AMAI've posted here for about five years, but with much less frequency the past year and a half. @xqtrack" @Kenny_Powers_CFA" @BlackHat" and others did similar threads. Earnings season is over and it is relatively quiet, I figured I would do something similar. I've been an analyst at fundamental l/... 2 weeks 12 hours
Tiger CubsI wanted to ping the WSO community and see if there are any users here that are analysts in the Tiger Cub network and would offer some insights. I work for a L/S fund with a value focus and our analysts have very little interaction with other funds. We spend essentially all of our time in SEC... 2 years 2 months
Baupost LetterDoes anybody have a copy? I'm sure this has been brought up before, but thought I would bring it back up. I'm willing to trade a copy of all my notes from Ira Sohn (fair warning they are hand written). 2 years 6 months
Back Office CFA???I saw this headline on the bottom of my bloomberg today in the area that just keeps scrolling news, and I thought it was a spoof from some website like Dealbreaker, but its real. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324081704578231453741714208.html?mod=googlenews_wsj http://www.... 2 years 7 months

I'm a late 20's CFA charterholder who works in a FO job in Asset Management (global shop that manages >$100bn) and would like to have a go at HF.

Are they the big names that we would all be aware of, or are there some mid-sized under the radar funds that do things really well in terms of the soundness of... 1 week 1 day

Activists are $150bn of $3 trillion in hedge fund AUM. They get 50%+ of the media exposure and are 5% of the assets. In terms of... 1 week 1 day

I was wondering whether you have ever had to negotiate or push for more comp at your fund than the partners were offering and if so, how you approached those discussions. In theory, an analyst has some leverage if the shop is lean (either naturally or due... 2 weeks 16 hours

Do you think it is a good platform (rivalling BB IBD) and how is GLG viewed by the industry?[/quote] Sorry, not really familiar with GLG and can't comment/offer any advice. 2 weeks 1 day

HF's have never been for me (I'm a deal-junkie), but always had some curiosity.. What's the size of your fund? How responsible are you for sourcing ideas? How do you come up with potential... 2 weeks 1 day
