Alternative Investments Launch of A Practitioner's Guide to Alternative Investment Funds Edhec Research Associate Timothy Spangler's new book, A Practitioner's Guide to Alternative Investment Funds, will be launched on Tuesday, March 15th in London.

Alternative investment funds come in many shapes and sizes. They invest in a diverse range of asset classes and pursue a myriad of different investment strategies. However, sufficient structural similarities exist between the different types of alternative investment funds (hedge funds, venture capital funds, buy-out funds, real estate funds and ever more esoteric vehicles) that a general description can be given of how they are established and operated. As a result of these similarities, regulatory responses to these vehicles tend to be similar in certain fundamental respects as well.

A Practitioner's Guide to Alternative Investment Funds offers, in an "asset class neutral" way, an examination of the fundamental structuring and operational issues that arise. The book addresses the range of structuring and investment issues that are associated with these funds in a jargon-free manner, and is illustrated with examples to enhance the practicality of the work.

The book launch will involve a short informal talk from Timothy Spangler on "Alternative investment funds - a brave new world?".

The book launch is being held at St Magnus House, 3 Lower Thames Street, London EC3R 6HA on Tuesday 15 March 2005. Registration will be from 6.00pm, and the talks will run from 6.30pm - 7.20pm, including panel questions. The seminar will be followed by drinks and canapés and there will be the opportunity to buy the book at a substantial discount.
