“History and Future of the Hedge Fund Industry” is the most entertaining class I have taken at Hopkins. Mr. Heerdt draws upon years of industry experience and a deep knowledge base to introduce financial instruments and numerous investing strategies in the context of gripping stories from history. From the very first “hedged fund,” to the macro-traders of the 1980s and ’90s, to the modern quantitative and systematic strategies employed today, the material covered in this course is engaging and exciting. If you are interested in finance, especially in investing, this course is a must-take.
