Summary
"Investors beware" is good advice in any situation, especially when dealing with the control of risk and alternative investments. Often well-known banks selling an instrument whose performance is not correlated with the equity markets can seem risk free. In this book, Chorafas has uncovered the hidden risks behind alternative investments through extensive research in the US, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Scandinavia and Switzerland. He also provides solutions to the problems identified. This book is particularly relevant in light of scandals such as Enron and WorldCom
