A comprehensive guide to international investing

Opportunities to tap into foreign markets and, in turn, entirely new investment universes-that have traditionally been accessible only to hedge fund managers-are at hand, and this book offers you the straight story on how to look abroad for the next addition to your portfolio.

Throughout these pages, the authors skillfully demonstrate how active, cutting-edge trading strategies used in domestic markets can be applied effectively overseas. Opening with discussions of the importance of international investing in today's turbulent markets, this reliable resource quickly moves on to examine the macro relationships between the different asset classes within a given country and shows you how to view those asset classes-stocks, bonds, currencies, and commodities-as a complete picture of what is happening in the investing world.

  • Addresses the application of strategies to international portfolio development and management
  • Clearly defines different financial markets and reveals how they can best be accessed and traded
  • Features information on currency trading and investing in foreign real estate as well as insights on swaps, futures trading, and risk management

The Investor's Passport to Hedge Fund Profits demystifies international investing and gives you the tools by which to effectively profit from a wide array of asset classes.
