Hedge Fund Risk Assessment

Risk assessment and valuation of hedge funds are challenging tasks because of the unique hedge fund problems deriving from the lack of transparency, numerous biases and vague regulations. Most of conventional valuation frameworks used by traditional managers for ages become hardly applicable when it comes to hedge funds. Not surprisingly, investment vehicles built on such valuation techniques lead to a weak performance and unpredictable risks.

Hedge Fund Valuation Challenges

  • Inapplicability of the mean-variance methodology because of non-normal return distributions of hedge funds
  • Inapplicability of the CAPM because of the non-convexity of the Efficient Frontier
  • Low or even negative correlations with the corresponding strategy indices
  • Non-transparency of hedge fund holdings
  • Biases in hedge fund data
  • Short return series
