There has been a tremendous growth in the Hedge Fund industry in recent years. It is estimated that there are more than 8000 Hedge Funds in the US alone. They have grown in popularity since the bear market of the early 2000s which convinced many people that they cannot just own stocks outright or inside mutual funds. Most investors understand mutual funds. They understand that the manager selects stocks and buys them. They also understand why they made (or lost) money in their mutual fund investments. The same thing cannot be said about Hedge Funds which come in a variety of flavors. Even savvy investors are often hard pressed to explain the sources of return on their Hedge Funds. This book should be read by anyone who has invested in, or is considering an investment in, a Hedge Fund and also by anyone who is considering starting one. The book explains the different types of funds as well as covering the key issues in every type of Hedge Fund. This book covers the entire gamut of the Hedge Fund industry. The authors explain the different styles of Hedge Funds (e.g. market neutral, convertible bond arbitrage, fixed income arbitrage and many more) and include a summary for each style of fund. The book also explains what a “fund of funds is, and covers the recently introduced capital guarantees and describes the capital preservation concerns that are faced by investors.

Accounting For Mismatch In Low And Middle Income Countries

To stimulate economic advancement, low- and middle-income countries need well-educated and trained workforces to fill the types of skilled jobs that drive economic growth. Improving educational quality and attainment and providing better training are all rightly put forth as policy recommendations to leverage economic growth and job creation. However, new findings based on large scale surveys of adult skills from the World Bank Group’s STEP (Skills toward Employment and Productivity) Skills Measurement Program suggest that many workers are overqualified for their current jobs (based on the education those jobs require). The results of this study suggest that countries may not reap as much benefit from their investments in quality education and training if weak job creation leaves workers’ skills underutilized. Most of the literature on mismatch focuses on higher-income countries and rates of over-education among college graduates. Accounting for Mismatch in Low- and Middle-Income Countries uses new STEP Skills Survey data from 12 low- and middle-income countries, representing a range of economic and educational and training climates, to better understand the scope and patterns of education and skills mismatch. STEP collects information not only on workers’ level of education and employment status, but also on the types, frequency, and durations of tasks they carry out at their jobs as well as some of the cognitive skills they use. The study also explores additional factors such as gender, health, career stage, and participation in the informal labor sector that may help explain the degree of mismatch rates. The study’s findings indicate that over-education is common in low and middle income countries with both lower and higher rates of educational attainment. There is also evidence that over-educated tertiary workers do not use all of their skills, potentially wasting valuable human capital and educational resources. Aimed at policy makers, business and education leaders, and employers, Accounting for Mismatch in Low- and Middle-Income Countries suggests that job growth must go hand-in-hand with investments in education and training.

Have you ever thought about what it would really be like to be an accountant? What kind of training do you need? What will it be like on the job? What kind of jobs can you get? Is accounting the right career for you? This book is intended to answer those questions and many more. Many people go into the field of accounting without fully understanding the demands of the career. Many also spend four or more years studying accounting, only to find that it is not the career for them, or that the field will not fully accept them due to elements in their previous life. There is nothing worse than watching someone complete a full accounting course of study, only to find out that the DUI that they got as an 18-year old prevents them from getting the job they just spent 6 years training for! Accounting is a highly competitive field. The decisions you make before you begin your career can be just as important, if not more so, than the decisions you make at the beginning of your career. The school you study at, the courses you take, your grades, and even your extra-curricular activities can determine whether you start your career at a top agency or at a smaller firm. The larger and more prestigious the firm you begin your career at, the greater your opportunities, and your salary, can be for the remainder of your accounting career. Before you consider an accounting career, read the FAQs in this book, and their answers. This book can help you decide if an accounting career is right for you, and if so, how to best prepare yourself for success.
