Helping Institutions and Ordinary People Invest Better by Focusing on Risk Control. David J. Merkel, CFA, FSA writes: My objectives in this blog are relatively simple: To further flesh out my thoughts from RealMoney, and provide for a greater degree of interaction with readers there. To interact more broadly with the blogosphere, adding my own distinct ideas to the mix. To develop an investment management shop. Initially, this would be institutional money management on a “long only” and hedged basis. Eventually, I would create a mutual fund so that smaller retail investors can invest with me. I would try to buy up a failed mutual fund shell, allowing a way in that is cheaper, and providing tax-sheltered gains to early investors. But all of this is a dream that might not be realized. Until then, I can tell you about managers who manage money in a way similar to mine. Visit his Blog here.
