Oxford University Press

An example of a hedge fund illustrates a long-short strategy that maximises expected returns subject to a Value-at-Risk strategy. Balance sheet capacity depends on the measured volatility of asset returns and the book equity of the long-short hedge fund. The principles are illustrated by the case of Long Term Capital Management (LTCM).

Keywords:   Margin spirals, book equity, leverage, long-short strategy hedge funds, Long Term Capital Management (LTCM)
