Abstract

By dynamically trading futures in very much the same way as investment banks hedge their OTC option positions it is possible to generate returns that are statistically very similar to the returns generated by hedge funds but without any of the usual drawbacks surrounding alternative investments, i.e. without liquidity, capacity, transparency or style drift problems and without paying over-the-top management fees. Hedge fund returns may be different, but they are certainly not unique.

Keywords: hedge fund, replication
