Each participant at this conference also received a copy of Grahall’s Michael Dennis Graham’s latest book Hedge Fund People Strategy: Human Capital that Supports Investment Excellence, Sustainability, and Growth. This important book provides readers with a perspective on the key dimensions of hedge fund people strategy and the organizational, talent management, compensation and employee relations practices in the hedge fund industry. More than just describing these practices, this book outlines why the practices need to be unique to each firm, and how firms can ensure that human capital is working as hard as the financial, intellectual, information, and other capital components demonstrated in today’s most successful firms. This book offers an unrivaled look at one of the little discussed but critical success factors in the hedge fund industry, its people.
