Alternative Investment Management Association Representing alternative asset managers globally
AIMA's Glossary has been developed for all those with an interest in the alternative investment industry - from the beginner to the advanced practitioner.
You will find a considerable overlap of content with the traditional fund management industry - the instruments used, the service providers employed, etc. However, the hedge fund industry is individual in the way in which it uses these resources.
For reasons of law and accuracy, this is not a wiki. It is a work-in-progress, however, and we invite you to submit new items for inclusion below (including the proposed definition).
