Frank Curzio's WALL STREET UNPLUGGED Podcast

The Risks Vs. Rewards of Hedge Funds

Welcome back to Frankly Speaking.

There are a lot of myths surrounding hedge funds, particularly how much yield they create vs. how much it costs you to invest in them. Today I debunk some of those myths, and remind you of the risks vs. rewards of hedge funds. Remember, the better they do, the more risk they take with your money.

I also discuss some big changes coming to Curzio Research. We’re getting ready to unveil some exciting new products… and share some special offers with our subscribers.
