Hedge funds are a vehicle to siphon wealth from the many who are middle income workers (i.e. government employees) to the class of people that wish to destroy such middling peons.

Fund of funds=fad. ya think? Paying 2 & 20 not once but several times can’t look good for long, even to a wine-and-supermodel-addled public pension trustee.

But they will be back under another name. It’s all about “choices.”

Maybe “precisely the kind of investors that built up the asset class in the first place” invests, but, finding itself unable to meet a capital call or more desiring of liquidity than anticipated, it transfers its interest (at some kind of loss) to an investor who wants in and has more liquidity than it needs. Does that happen?
