Hedge Funds: Investment Pools, Advisers, Trading Practices, Monitoring, Regulation (2006)

A hedge fund is a pooled investment vehicle administered by a professional management firm, and often structured as a limited partnership, limited liability company, or similar vehicle. They are usually distinguished from private equity funds, which use the more illiquid investment strategies associated with private equity. Hedge funds invest in a diverse range of markets and use a wide variety of investment styles and financial instruments. The name "hedge fund" refers to the hedging techniques traditionally used by hedge funds, but hedge funds today do not necessarily hedge. Hedge funds are made available only to certain sophisticated or accredited investors and cannot be offered or sold to the general public. As such, they generally avoid direct regulatory oversight, bypass licensing requirements applicable to investment companies, and operate with greater flexibility than mutual funds and other investment funds.


Hedge funds are most often open-ended and allow additions or withdrawals by their investors. A hedge fund's value is calculated as a share of the fund's net asset value, meaning that increases and decreases in the value of the fund's investment assets (and fund expenses) are directly reflected in the amount an investor can later withdraw.
Many hedge fund investment strategies aim to achieve a positive return on investment regardless of whether markets are rising or falling ("absolute return"). Hedge fund managers often invest money of their own in the fund they manage, which serves to align their own interests with those of the investors in the fund.[5][6] A hedge fund typically pays its investment manager an annual management fee, which is a percentage of the assets of the fund, and a performance fee if the fund's net asset value increases during the year. Some hedge funds have several billion dollars of assets under management (AUM). As of 2009, hedge funds represented 1.1% of the total funds and assets held by financial institutions.[7] As of June 2013, the estimated size of the global hedge fund industry was US$2.4 trillion.
Because hedge funds are not sold to the general public or retail investors, the funds and their managers have historically been exempt from some of the regulation that governs other funds and investment managers with regard to how the fund may be structured and how strategies and techniques are employed. Regulations passed in the United States and Europe after the 2008 credit crisis were intended to increase government oversight of hedge funds and eliminate certain regulatory gaps.

Petrodollar Scam Breaking Down ~ Brother Nathanael

Petrodollar Scam Breaking Down ~ Brother Nathanael






The Petrodollar & War machine.
Ever wondered what the Petrodollar is?
Ever wondered why we invaded Iraq?
Ever wondered why we 'helped' the people in Libya but not Syria?
Ever wondered why we are building up to a war in Iran?

Most people would answer "oil" to the last 3 questions.
But why invade their countries for oil if they where/are selling the oil to us in the first place at standard market rates?

Brother Nathanael goes into detail of why the petrodollar is so important to the USA and why a war with Iran is a foregone conclusion.
Iran also has had it's nuclear program running from the 1950's,only now does the USA see it as a 'problem'.Why is that?

ANY gold backed currency anywhere on Earth would be both a threat to the Euro and US Dollar.

Mike Rivero ~ America Becoming a Repressive Police State worse than Nazi Germany




What Really Happened Radio Show: Michael Rivero Friday January 3 2014: (Commercial Free Video) Michael Rivero is the webmaster of http://whatreallyhappened.com/ and host of the What Really Happened radio shows on the Republic Broadcasting Network. Formerly with NASA, Michael transitioned his image processing skills (along with a brief stint as an actor) into the then-new motion picture computer animation field and has worked on films such as "Star Trek", "The Day After Tomorrow", and has supervised visual effects on "Brainscan," "LOST", and "Hawaii Five-0." Michael has taken a sabbatical from film work to focus all his efforts on peace activism. Michaels foray into blogging began before the word was even invented, and happened almost by accident when he spotted a suspicious photograph being broadcast on ABC news in 1994 related to the death of White House deputy Council Vincent Foster. Since that sudden beginning, Michaels website has expanded to cover diverse topics including the JFK assassination, the accidental shoot-down of TWA 800, election fraud, health issues, Saddams non-existent nuclear weapons, 9-11, the economy, and of course, the lies used to trick the United States into wars of conquest on Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Iran. Michael resides in Hawaii with his wife Claire, who is a composer and creates much of theme music used on the What Really Happened radio show.

Nordstrom testified to Congress that Benghazi ranked "HIGH or CRITICAL in threat categories related to political violence, terrorism . . ."

Obama Adds 2 New Executive Actions On Guns!

While the MSM on TV Is staying away from this topic , The Truth Is , They are constantly looking for ways to steal Your Rights!
http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/20...




White House announces two new 'executive actions' on guns
The Obama administration is proposing two more executive actions that it says will help prevent individuals who are prohibited from having a gun for mental health reasons from obtaining a firearm.
The Department of Justice, arguing that current federal law contains terminology about mental health issues that is too vague, proposed a regulation that would clarify who is ineligible to possess a firearm for specific situations related to mental health, like commitment to a mental institution. “In addition to providing general guidance on federal law, these clarifications will help states determine what information should be made accessible to the federal background check system, which will, in turn, strengthen the system's reliability and effectiveness,” the administration said in a fact sheet distributed to reporters.

US Consulate Whistleblower: '9/11 Hijackers Passports were issued by the CIA'

CBC News transcript- Michael Springman
"this operation in Jeddah was so peculiar, so strange, and it went against anything I had ever seen or heard in my 20 years in government, that I thought that what these people were telling me about CIA involvement with Osama, and with Afghanistan had to be true because nothing else would fit. By the attempts to cover me up and shut me down, this convinced me more and more that this was not a pipe-dream, this was not a machination, this was not a conspiracy theory."



Breaking News the stage set for Global Economic Collapse 2014 , enforcing one world currency


“Banking was conceived in iniquity and born in sin. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money to buy it back again... Take this great power away from them and all great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for then this world would be a better and happier world to live in. But if you want to continue to be slaves to the banks and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit.” ~ Sir Josiah Stamp, Director, Bank of England 1928-1941 (rerputed to be the second richest man in England at the time).



I'm expecting 2014 to be the year the dollar collapses, quickly followed by the fall of the U.S. government. I'm expecting massive famine and a big die off as we enter the 2nd Great Dark Ages. This may or may not be precipitated by a 3rd World War started by O'Bozo over Syria. If the 21st century is going to mimick the 20th century, then 2014 will be the year another Great World War is started.

Alex Jones Show: Friday (1-3-13) Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt & Reverend Clenard Childress

On the Friday, January 3 transmission of the Alex Jones Show, Alex breaks down how, despite temperatures hitting new record lows, global warming alarmists will try to spin the cold weather into an omen indicative of human induced climate change. Alex also addresses the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' lack of transparency regarding the federal government's purchase of 14 million doses of potassium iodide, a buy which many speculate was due to the volatile nature of Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant. On today's show, Alex welcomes Reverend Clenard Childress of blackgenocide.org to examine how abortion is still the preferred eugenics method, used to cull the masses, as well as "purify" different races and social classes. Alex also invites former Senior Policy Advisor for the U.S. Department of Education, Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, to analyze how socialism is subtly promoted in American schools and textbooks. She'll also divulge who is actually behind the complete internationalization of education. We'll also cover the Obamacare meltdown and take your calls on this worldwide broadcast.

The Grey Aliens Sinister Plans for Mankind

This Show looks into the Grey aliens, the most iconic Aliens in popular culture -- and if in fact they exist, what their plan could be for mankind and the future of our planet.

Grey aliens (also referred to as "Roswell Greys", "Greys" or "Grays") are alleged extraterrestrial beings whose existence is promoted in ufological, paranormal, and New Age communities, and who are named for their skin color.



Around half of all reported alien encounters in the United States describe Grey aliens. Such claims vary in every respect including their nature (ETs, extradimensionals, demons, or machines), origins, moral dispositions, intentions, and physical appearances (even varying in their eponymous skin color). A composite description derived from overlap in claims would have Greys as small-bodied sexless beings with smooth grey-colored skin, enlarged head and large black eyes. The origin of the idea of the Grey is commonly associated with the Betty and Barney Hill abduction claim, although skeptics see precursors in science fiction and earlier paranormal claims.

Greys are typically depicted as dark grey-skinned diminutive humanoid beings that possess reduced forms of, or completely lack, external human organs such as noses, ears or sex organs. Their bodies are usually depicted as being elongated, having a small chest, and lacking in muscular definition and visible skeletal structure. Their legs are shorter and jointed differently from what one would expect in a human. Their limbs are often depicted as proportionally different from a human's; their humerus and thighs are the same lengths as their forearms and shins, respectively.

Greys are depicted as having unusually large heads in proportion to their bodies. They are depicted as having no hair anywhere on the body, including the face, and no noticeable outer ears or noses, but only small openings or orifices for ears and nostrils. They are depicted as having very small mouths, and very large opaque black eyes with no discernible iris or pupil. Sometimes Greys are depicted as having no noticeable nostrils or mouths. Also reports of alleged encounters state their height to be 2--4 ft tall

Greys are commonly included in alien abduction claims. Among reports of supposed alien encounters, Greys make up approximately 50 percent in Australia, 43 percent in the United States, 90 percent in Canada, 67 percent in Brazil, 20 percent in Continental Europe, and around 12 percent in the United Kingdom. These reports include two distinct groups of Greys that differ in height. Abductees say that they recognize the leader of their abductors by its "demeanor." Some ufologists and abduction researchers believe that taller Greys, with their reported increased authority and apparently more complex psychology, may be the only Grey type to be biologically alive and that the shorter form could be their artificially constructed robot or cyborg servants
