 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

While some sorry hedge fund tales abound, the following provides an entertaining “top ten” list of hedge fund manager quotes (some perhaps apocryphal), courtesy of Hermes, a London-based fund manager.

10. “If we don’t charge 2 and 20, no one will take us seriously.”

9. “We are 75% cash because we cannot find sufficient investments.”

8. “We charge 3 and 30 because that is the only way we can keep assets
     under several billion.”

7. “We don’t invest in crowded shorts.”

6. “I haven’t shorted before, but I do have my CFA.”

5. “Managed futures are a better investment than hedge funds because
     hedge funds are a zero-sum game.”

4. “What’s a Master Trust?”

3. “Your Head of Equity doesn’t understand our hedge fund strategy.”

2. “Basically, I look at the trading screens all day and go with my gut.”

1. “He will be with you in a minute sir, he’s still meeting with his architect.”

Which one are you?
