"In his book, Jason Scharfman identifies these operational risks and recommends a strong and innovative "operational" due diligence review program as the best defense against them. His book outlines a step-by-step guide that shows investors how to effectively detect and evaluate often-overlooked operational risk factors in hedge funds and other investments in order to provide hedge funds and their investors with the skills to understand and hopefully mitigate these risks."

Hedge Fund Operational Due Diligence
Understanding the Risks
One need only glance at the cover of the Wall Street Journal or turn on CNBC to learn about the latest debacle befalling hedge funds, due to poor operational oversight and controls. Long viewed by many hedge fund investment professionals as one of life's necessary evils and a distraction from the "real" business of investing, the field of operational due diligence has finally caught on today as an essential area of hedge fund risk management.
Filled with real-world examples drawn from the author's experiences dealing with the operational risks of a global hedge fund platform, Hedge Fund Operational Due Diligence: Understanding the Risks clearly outlines a flexible framework to enable you to diagnose a hedge fund's operational risks. This user-friendly, step-by-step guide shows you how to effectively detect and evaluate often-overlooked operational risk factors in hedge funds, such as multijurisdictional regulatory coordination, silo creation, operational drag, organizational nesting, and vaporware, to equip you with a complete understanding of the importance and benefits of a comprehensive operational due diligence program.
