The hedge fund industry seems primed for the pump as we settle into the beginnings of what looks to be a great summer. It's clear that many folks both in and out of the industry are waiting with baited breath for the news out of the SEC on how funds can or cannot advertise in the wake of the passage of the JOBS act.

Our research shows that going forward investors, regardless of the amount of capital that they plan on putting to work, are focused now more than ever on dotting I’s and crossing T’s before they invest dollar one with a fund.

To this end, one topic on everyone’s mind continues to be risk management. It seems that this is the story that just will not go away. Yesterday, Jamie Dimon, the Chairman and CEO of J.P. Morgan testified before the Senate Banking Committee. It was his first appearance on the Hill since the bank revealed massive trading losses in May. To read excerpts from his testimony, click here.

Later this month, the first Investor Ops program will take in New York City. During this investor only program, delegates will learn from and meet with peers to discuss the best practices in operational due diligence. Investor Ops is a new series we created to help investors learn the tools of the trade to make better decisions.
