Many resources are available that will help you to learn more about hedge funds and careers in compliance. First, check out The Economist’s article “How Hedge Funds Work” (http://www.economist.com/blogs/economist-explains/2015/03/economist-explains-16), which provides a brief history of the field, a summary of hedge fund strategies, and an explanation of how regulation is changing the industry. Next, familiarize yourself with the lingo of hedge funds by checking out the glossary section of the Alternative Investment Management Association’s Web site, http://www.aima.org/en/education/glossary.cfm. Finally, talk to compliance professionals about their careers. Your business teacher or counselor can help arrange an information interview.
