When you hear the term “hedge,” you might immediately think of your well-manicured, Florida yard. But, Alpha Advantage’s John Bolos is here to help Tampa, Florida establish itself as a financial hub. While he’s busy making that happen, we need to make sure we understand just what hedge funds are.
First, hedge funds are an alternative type of investment. That might be why many people are unfamiliar with them. Traditional investments include stocks and bonds. Because of hedge funds’ complexities, they are held by accredited investors. Also differentiating hedge funds from more conventional investments is the fact that they are not as heavily regulated. Bolos is able to say that he offers the Alpha Advantage because, in finance, “alpha” is used to indicate performance. More specifically, the surplus return of a particular investment as it relates to a benchmark index’s return is the investment’s alpha. No doubt Bolos is focused on generating high returns to give his clients the advantage when it comes to their hedge funds.
At Alpha Advantage Capital, Bolos works with qualified and accredited investors because hedge funds require a significant initial investment. Read, it typically takes millions of dollars to start one. Traditional hedge funds continue to be reserved for high net worth individuals. Since hedge funds are not as limited by regulations as other investments, Bolos and the hedge funds that he works with have a lot of latitude in what they do to increase returns as long as they are forthcoming about their strategies to investors. Hedge funds can carry a great amount of risk, but they can also lead to substantial long-term returns. In order to garner long-term value, Bolos knows that, as a boutique third-party marketer, Alpha Advantage must maintain high expectations for its partners. With the right investors, he helps ensure that clients hit funding goals.
