The Financial Crisis Killed Hedge-Fund Performance

I have long been interested in hedge funds and their managers. We have regularly looked at issues such as changing fee structures, higher-than-rational expected returns, general cost and performance issues, and why investors keep shoveling money to the funds. My Bloomberg News colleagues Katherine Burton, Melissa Karsh and Sam Dodge published an article last week, “The Incredible Shrinking Hedge Fund,” that is chock-full of […]

Notice periods: Dos and don’ts

As an for audit into practice recruiter of several years, I’ve noticed how companies are increasingly reticent to part with staff.

Améliorer La Gestion Des Ressources Humaines Grâce Aux Incitations Positives

Les ressources humaines n’y échappent pas : l’ère actuelle est celle de la volatilité et de la mutation constante. Devant l’ubérisation de l’économie, il n’a jamais été aussi impérieux pour l’employeur de développer l’incentive – anglicisme qui désigne les techniques destinées à améliorer la motivation et les performances du personnel d’une entreprise – de la petite PME à la grande […]
