Opalesque Campus: Top Hedge Fund Academic – Operational Due Diligence as a Source of Alpha in quant analytics

Stephen J. Brown is David S. Loeb Professor of Finance at the Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University. Professor Stephen Brown describes how his recent research reports into operational due diligence have shown that operational risk is the “disease” that plagues hedge funds and funds of funds, and accounts for low market-adjusted returns along with many of the fund failures that occurred in 2008. While financial risk is a “symptom” of the disease, operational risk is more predictive of fund failure than is financial risk.

Prof. Brown’s research proves that managers and investors did not take due diligence processes very seriously leading up to 2008. Focusing on the central role of funds of funds as the primary conduit for institutional investing into the hedge fund space, Stephen argues that the traditional question of how much diversification a fund of funds should utilize is the wrong question.
