The article focuses on the growing popularity of hedge funds in securities markets. Although analysts predict that the number of new launches of hedge funds could double in 2005, there are concerns that the majority of these are likely to offer high returns with correspondingly high risk while few will be talented enough to deliver high alpha at a minimal peril to the investor. Vasey and Peter Fusaro, chairmen of Global Change Associates Inc. have authored a report on the hedge fund stampede into energy in which they predict at least a doubling in 2005 over the number of funds launched and assets raised in 2004.
