When this video was made needs to be marked.

The accuracy of the video depends on when it was made. For example, the video says Hedge Funds are unregulated, but Dodd-Frank (July 21, 2010) brought hedge funds under regulation for the first time.

Hedge funds are great vehicles for their managers to

enrich themselves while leaving little alpha for their investors. Of course

there are some exceptions but most hedge funds lost money last year.

A good movie! It grasps the concept of hedge funds in a clear cut way. However there are two important issues:

1. Guaranteed return: Hedge funds do not often offer a guaranteed return but they strive towards an absolute return (for instance 15% return per annum, regardless of market conditions).

2. Unregulated. It is not true that Hedge Funds are often unregulated. A lot of hedge funds are regulated with the SEC for instance.
