Hedge Funds: Are Negative Fees in the Horizon? An Option Pricing Perspective

A Talk By Luis Seco

5:45 PM Registration
6:00 PM Seminar Begins

NYU Kimmel Center
Room 914

New York, New York 10012


Abstract
The growth of the hedge fund sector is creating a difficult environment for start-ups, which is creating a climate that favors innovative fee structures. In this talk we will review some of them, and will propose a cost/benefit analysis using Black-Scholes option pricing which will show that in some situations, the manager will pay the investor.

Luis Seco is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Toronto, where he also directs the Mathematical Finance Program and the RiskLab, a research laboratory that specializes in risk management research. He is the President and CEO of Sigma Analysis & Management, an asset management firm that provides hedge fund investment products that employ managed account structures to obtain unique transparency, analytics and liquidity services.
