The Fund of Hedge Funds is … Back? (Barrons)
The surprising argument by colleague Lawrence C. Strauss is that the expensive, complicated approach to investing known as the “fund of hedge funds” is making a comeback. Actually, that’s not quite his argument. Funds of hedge funds give access to sought-after managers, freeing institutions and wealthy families from doing their own manager homework, and the industry has never quite recovered from the suckering administered by Bernie Madoff to some high-profile funds which invested with the disgraced former head of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities.

Deutsche Bank Hires Morgan Stanley’s Yoshida (Finalternatives)
Deutsche Bank AG (USA) (NYSE:DB) has snagged Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS)’s former point man for hedge fund coverage of interest rates. Chris Yoshida will join the bank in September as global head of rates sales, based in New York. “His significant global experience in rates products and deep client relationships further strengthens our ability to meet and exceed client needs across the rates business.” Yoshida was most recently head of interest rate distribution in Europe, the Middle East and Africa at Morgan Stanley. Formerly, he lead European global macro distribution at the firm, after beginning his career at Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS).

Why This Hedge Fund Sold Its Huge Groupon Stake (DailyFinance)
There are stocks that struggle after their IPOs, and there are stocks that crash. None in recent memory has caused as much investor pain as Groupon Inc (NASDAQ:GRPN). After hitting a record high the first day shares were on the market, the company’s stock sank 91% over the next 12 months. Not coincidentally, it was right around the time Groupon shares were hitting their all-time low that Tiger Global Management announced that it had established a 10% stake in the Daily Deals and e-commerce company. Over the years, Tiger has made a name for itself by investing in out-of-favor technology stocks. Usually, these plays have worked out in the organization’s favor. That has helped the hedge fund grow its total value to about $7.5 billion.
