Hedge Fund Manager.

    Hedge/Portfolio/Pension Fund Manager
    A hedge fund manager is in charge of making investment decisions for a pool of capital commonly provided by investors that meet designated requirements for net worth or investment sophistication. Since a hedge fund manager is responsible for handling a portfolio of investments, his position is somewhat similar to that of a mutual fund or exchange-traded fund (ETF) manager. However, because hedge funds are typically much higher-risk portfolios that are more actively traded, they require close monitoring and a greater amount of day-to-day hands-on management and decision-making regarding investments. The hedge fund manager is the person ultimately responsible for conducting the hedge fund's everyday affairs, such as raising investment capital and rebalancing investments to maintain a given risk/reward ratio. He is usually supported by a team of analysts and traders who conduct much of the necessary research and are in charge of actual trade execution.

    Lads, let's say for arguments sake, you are in control of a relatively small fund of One Billion (Dollar, Euro and Euro Asia amongst others). As most here know - One would have to communicate clearly what one will buy and what Ones rules are for selling(rebalancing) on a Quarterly basis.

    So as a small group, where would you fit in on the team or as a Manger - how best would you allocate monies in the present climate?
