Timely investment advice from the investors who survived—and thrived—during the economic crisis
In light of the colossal losses and ongoing difficulties caused by the financial crisis, it's obvious that the time has come to rethink money management in the broadest of terms. Drastic changes are clearly in order, but no new model has yet been implemented. Steven Drobny explores a new model from a simple starting point—by consulting the traders and managers who actually made money during this profoundly difficult period. In The Invisible Hands, top global macro managers reveal their own (clearly successful) approaches to markets and risk, suggesting important tenets for money management in a future, precarious world.
Providing money managers and investors with the proven expertise of the best and most successful players in money management and detailing many specific elements of their risk management processes, The Invisible Hands:
The book highlights the similarities among successful traders, showing that the investment process should be anchored in understanding the true risk-adjusted returns in your portfolio.

The crash of 2008 crushed "real money" investors (endowments, pensions, foundations, and family offices). World markets—from real estate and equities to commodities and credit—collapsed. Some of the world's most venerable financial institutions disappeared, while many hedge fund, private equity, venture capital, and real asset managers suffered immense losses. Yet, the world has not ended, and now, all investors must adapt to the new reality.
Analyzing money managers who fared well in 2008—either by posting strong performance or by preserving capital—is a logical starting point. Global macro hedge funds are those money managers. Risk management is a key differentiator during crises, and global macro hedge fund managers anchor their investment processes in risk, rather than targeting outsized returns.
In The Invisible Hands, Steven Drobny—cofounder of Drobny Global Advisors and author of Inside the House of Money—again reaches out to his professional network of leading global macro hedge fund managers to better understand how their risk management, investment, and portfolio construction process enabled them to effectively navigate the crash of '08. With this book as your guide, you'll glean valuable insights from unparalleled access to these winners in order to adapt to the new financial reality we all now face.
The Invisible Hands begins by addressing the importance of "real money" management, examining its evolution and raising important questions about how portfolios are constructed. In Part Two, the experts or "Invisible Hands"—ten anonymous global macro hedge fund managers—discuss how they approach money management, revealing how they made money or avoided large losses during the crisis of 2008, and detailing how they would address some of the challenges faced by real money managers. Part Three introduces the invisible hand known as "The Pensioner," who provides an inside look at the real money world.
Along the way, The Invisible Hands also:
Examines some of the fundamental questions currently being asked by all investors as they struggle to understand the new paradigm of the post-crisis world
Questions some core tenets of asset allocation and portfolio construction as these concepts are applied by real money investors
Reveals how some of the best in the hedge fund business are positioning themselves for the uncertain road ahead
And much more
Page by page, The Invisible Hands provides investors and traders with the latest thinking from some of the best players in money management, highlighting the specific risk and return objectives of each, and discussing the evolution of certain styles and beliefs in money management. This book will allow you to discover how successful global macro hedge fund managers navigated the most significant financial crisis of our lifetime and learn how to incorporate certain elements of their approach into your own investment endeavors.From the Back Cover:
