The Managed Funds Association (MFA) has launched an online hedge fund glossary in collaboration with Latham & Watkins through its Book of Jargon – Hedge Funds.
This resource, available on MFA’s website www.managedfunds.org, provides users with a complete set of key terms, phrases, and definitions specific to all aspects of the global hedge fund industry.
The hedge fund glossary offers users access to an interactive library of more than 900 terms, including acronyms regularly used to describe key industry terms, as well as jargon adopted by professionals in the hedge fund industry.
The Book of Jargon – Hedge Funds is also available as a free app that allows users to access the information on Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices.
“The launch of the hedge fund glossary further exemplifies MFA’s commitment to educational offerings for hedge fund professionals and serves as another helpful resource for those looking to learn more about how our industry functions,” says Richard Baker, president and CEO of the Managed Funds Association. “These global businesses can be complex, but we believe our glossary allows those who are curious and interested in hedge funds to gain clarity on the basic elements, strategies, and terms that govern the day-to-day operations of the industry.”
“We are pleased to collaborate with the MFA on this project to make our Book of Jargon – Hedge Funds available on the MFA website. We are delighted to support the MFA’s endeavour to provide the hedge fund community with educational resources,” says Steve Wink, corporate partner and co-chair of Latham & Watkins’ hedge fund task force.
Content in the glossary will be regularly updated by Latham & Watkins to reflect changes in legislation, terminology, and definitions that are relevant to the global hedge fund community.
