Below is a chapter excerpt from a draft of FPM's "NSWF: Of Reputation Risk". The research chronicles Alternative Investment Management industry's misnomers and myths through the case study of Blackstone Group's Fund of Funds unit 'BAAM' and reputational relationship with Steven A. Cohen's eponymous SAC Capital. The demystification we focus on is in-depth systemic analysis of corporate and personnel reputation or headline risk. We critically ask why reputation of corporate culture should matter in context of insider trading and other frauds in the pursuit of alpha performance AIM.
It embodies FPM's commercial manifesto motto of:
“Industry Intelligence into Due Diligence for Enterprising Execution”
