    What's haunting hedge funds?

    Managing Partner / Spotlight Group
    United Kingdom
    The once-glamorous world of hedge fund investing is under pressure like never before, as the first quarter of 2016 brought dismal for returns and major investors are pulling out in protest at high fees and low returns. Furthermore, many asset managers are now replicating what hedge funds have done and keeping their money in house rather than placing it in the hands of hedge funds.

    US students need better finance education: Guardian

    The Guardian
    A new report by the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers shows that US citizens do not know much about finance. That is endangering people's financial well-being, according to the Guardian. "The alarmingly wide wealth gap in the US has no simple fix, but knowing the difference between a stock and a bond, whether a mortgage is a good deal or toxic, and the calculus of repaying a loan are small, significant steps toward bringing 90% of Americans closer to their wealthy fellows," writes Suzanne McGee. In particular, young people urgently need proper financial educations in order to be able to secure a safe future despite student loans and savings plans. Only those having basic financial knowledge have a good chance of coping with these challenges.

    In search of the perfectly correlated trade

    In search of the perfectly correlated trade
    The adage ''keeping up with the Joneses'' refers to neighbours trying to match each other in their display of wealth. This is just a minor correlation. Cash and future markets are just the same: both aim to settle at the same cash value. But are they perfectly correlated?

    Only real rates are the real thing

    Only real rates are the real thing
    Saving for the future (such as for the time you're on the pension) is often done with a certain purchasing power in mind. When anticipating it, not only the nominal rate of return of an investment is important, but also inflation. Both are uncertain and impossible to accurately predict. Here we take a look at past inflation rates and what real rates of return occurred.

    This is what you really get for your money

    This is what you really get for your money
    Interest rates remain low, but that does not mean saving isn't worth it. It’s a matter of strategy. And of course one has to take into account that low interest rates are often accompanied by low inflation. Hence, the real yield compared to previously is higher than it appears. Let’s have a look at how real rates developed over the past. In a later article we will shed light on the fact that in the long run, historically, shares still showed extraordinary returns.

    Time to fill gaps in Asian financial literacy

    Nikkei Asian Review
    The current state of financial literacy in Asia is unclear. Only some Asian economies and target groups within them have been surveyed, and the results vary widely. Asia is only sparsely represented in international surveys. But it is clear that poor financial literacy contributed to the severity of the 2008 crisis in Asia, and Asian nations would benefit from better financial education. Greater financial literacy would improve access to financial services, for households and small and medium-sized enterprises. Also, financially literate people would be likely to save more, reducing reliance on foreign capital, and boosting GDP growth. And better education should reduce risks such as loan defaults. Finally, wider financial literacy would improve retirement planning and preparation for old age.
