The old lawyer caressed his smoothly shaven chin and gazed out at Joyce Lavillotte from under his shaggy eyebrows, as from the port-holes of a castle, impressing her as being quite as inscrutable of aspect and almost as belligerent. She, flushed and bright-eyed, leaned forward with an appealing air, opposing the resistless vigor of youth to the impassiveness of age."It is not the crazy scheme you think it, Mr. Barrington," she said in that liquid voice which was an inheritance from her creole ancestry, "and I do not mean to risk my last dollar. You know I have means that cannot be touched. Why should you be so sure I cannot manage the Works-especially when Mr. Dalton is so capable and--"The lawyer uttered something between a grunt and a laugh."It's Mr. Dalton who will manage it all. What do you know of the Works?""No, he will not, Mr. Barrington. The factory, of course, is his province, but the village shall be mine. You think, because I am not yet twenty-two, that I do not know my own mind, but you forget how long I have been motherless; and a girl has to think for herself when her mother goes."
A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO MANAGED INVESTMENTS is an essential reference for those acting as existing responsible entities of managed investments, their advisers and their investors or those considering embarking on a career in funds management. Those involved in such schemes will find this third edition vital to their understanding of how managed investment schemes are formed and how those schemes raise capital, operate, interact with members and ASIC and ultimately wind up. The book explores the licensing requirements and duties of a responsible entity, registration and fundraising, compliance systems and disclosure obligations, and the types of arrangements regulated by the Corporations Act. In doing so, the text comments on the legislation, ASIC regulatory guides, class orders, practice notes and the case law that govern managed investment schemes in Australia. Further features of this new edition include a new chapter concerning member meetings, assistance in tackling problems that may arise in relation to managed investment schemes, practical suggestions on dealing with ASIC and discussion of future developments in this evolving area of the law.

The purpose of this book is to present the principles of alternative investments in management. The individual chapters provide a detailed analysis of various classes of alternative investments on the financial market. Despite many different definitions of alternative investments, it can be assumed that a classical approach to alternative investments includes hedge funds, fund of funds (FOF), managed accounts, structured products and private equity/venture capital. Alternative investment in keeping with this broad definition is the subject of consideration here. The theoretical part of each chapter is meant to collect, systematize and deepen readers' understanding of a given investment category, while the practical part of each focuses on an analysis of the current state of development of alternative investments on the global market and outlines the prospects of future market development. This book will be a valuable tool for scholars, practitioners and policy-makers alike.
