AIMA (the Alternative Investment Management Association) published ‘Apples and Apples – How to better understand hedge fund performance’ to help investors better understand hedge fund returns. The paper was written to address persistent media reports that publish headlines based on a simple comparison of returns, without giving consideration to risk. In reality, the majority of hedge funds, including all of Spartan’s funds, are managed to mitigate risk and to offer returns that are uncorrelated to the equity markets.

You’ll find it to be an interesting read – it’s short and to the point.
