About This Class

I used to work and started a hedge fund. This is a short and entertaining course on what it is like working at a hedge fund. I hope you enjoy it : ) 

Quick disclosure: the comments in the video about Apple, Google and GoPro are all hypothetical (ficticious statements for this exercise). Thanks!
