Book - An American Hedge Fund - Timothy Sykes

Book – An American Hedge Fund


UPDATE: Now available in audiobook format on iTunes & other formats like Audible & Playaway!

$2 trillion is invested in the hedge fund industry, and yet, due to industry regulations, the general public knows little about them. Hedge funds are prohibited from advertising, talking to the press and detailing their businesses to anybody worth less than $1 million. This goes against everything America stands for. Wealthy and
non-wealthy investors alike should be allowed to learn about hedge funds and the strategies they employ for safer and more profitable investing. This is the story of one hedge fund’s wild ride.

Timothy turned $12,000 of Bar Mitzvah gift money into $2 million trading thousands of stocks from 1999-2002, managed the #1 Short Bias Hedge Fund from 2003-2006, starred in the television documentary Wall Street Warriors, and appeared regularly on CNBC all before the age of 26. This is no BS “Get-Rich-Quick” book; it’s the first realistic look at the world of stock trading and startup hedge funds. This ‘Rocky’ – like story will educate and inspire everyone.
