Tip: Some Hope at Hedge Funds

MF Global and UBS sounded a warning call for hedge funds: Make sure your risk management people are up to speed. That call has translated into demand for operational risk management experts for buy-side institutions. Hedge funds are looking for chief risk officers as well as risk staffers with three to 10 years of experience working in financial services on the operations management or risk side.
