Money Mavericks — Confessions of a Hedge Fund Manager
Kaye Scholer was pleased to welcome guest speaker Lars Kroijer, the author of the recently published Money Mavericks — Confessions of a Hedge Fund Manager.
Mr. Kroijer was the CIO of Holte Capital Ltd, a London-based market neutral special situations hedge fund, which he founded in 2002, before returning external capital in the spring of 2008.
Mr. Kroijer spoke informally on:
- The hedge fund industry and hedge funds as an asset class. What was the past like and what may the future hold, including regulation?
- Starting a hedge fund business and scaling it, including critical success factors and facing the unexpected.
- Examples of good and bad trades.
- Motivations in writing the book, and the experience since publication.
The Investment Funds Group of Kaye Scholer LLP holds regular breakfast seminars in our London office usually on the first Tuesday of every month. These seminars address current topics of interest to private equity and venture capital firms, hedge fund managers, fund-of-funds and traditional investment management firms.
