We live in a knowledge-based economy. Our programs are geared toward very specific fields and skill sets to help you gain specialized knowledge within areas most critical to your success. Completing a certification program allows you to show others on your resume and bio that you are more well-trained and credible than other professionals in the industry. A recent study by Gartner also showed that certification programs increased compensation by 5-11% on average, and can boost your income by as much as 30-40% annually. When an employer or potential client is choosing between you and someone with very similar work experience and education, being certified is one more thing that will make you stand out from the crowd.

Choose from One of Three Concentrations

CHP Level 2 allows participants to specialize in one of the following concentrations: due diligence, marketing & sales, portfolio analytics.  This allows you to spend 100% of your time learning about areas that are directly relevant to your position or a job to which you are transitioning.  In the space below you will find an overview of each concentration option:

Become an Asset to Your Hedge Fund at a Time When Due Diligence Has Never Been More Important

CHP Level 2 Option on Due Diligence helps hedge fund professionals learn about hedge fund due diligence fundamentals and best practices. The CHP Level 2 program on due diligence requires three texts, each one focuses on different aspects of due diligence and are crucial to a well-rounded understanding.

One text will provide an overall basic level of knowledge of due diligence, some techniques and key terms to focus on, and thus should be read first (Hedges on Hedge Funds).  One book will provide candidates with some of the current models and techniques being used in the hedge fund industry to uncover operational risk and trends that may lead the way within the industry going forward (Hedge Fund Operational Due Diligence).  The final book is meant to be the capstone of the entire due diligence section and links many of the previously explored ideas together in a meaningful way while explaining some of the most crucial elements of a hedge fund and their overall relation to risk (Hedge Fund Risk Fundamentals).

Gain valuable specialized knowledge to help raise capital for hedge funds

The CHP Level 2 Option on Marketing & Capital Raising combines hedge fund marketing and sales training with sales best practices to create a platform where third party marketers, capital introduction professionals, investor relations, and in-house marketers can gain credibility and certify their knowledge within this space.

Level 2 builds on CHP Level 1 by referring to investment strategies, terms, and trends discussed within the Level 1 reading materials.

Marketing & Sales Learning Modules

•  Hedge Fund Capital Raising Distribution Channels
•  Sales Fundamentals
•  Influence & Persuasion
•  Capital Introduction
•  Hedge Fund Marketing Best Practices
•  Third Party Marketing

The required readings and resources for CHP Level 2 in Marketing & Sales can be seen in the study guide.  The materials used to train participants include three books and exclusive video content. The video content includes lectures on hedge fund marketing and sales best practices, as well as short hedge fund marketing tips and techniques.

The video content within this portion of the program is worth far more than the CHP tuition since this material can normally only be received by retaining $200+/hour consultants or attending expensive industry conferences charging over $1,000 for admission. All of these resources have been put together by professionals who have raised capital for hedge funds in the past, and each is made to be as practical and actionable as possible.

Gain valuable specialized knowledge on Portfolio Risk Management & Analytics

The CHP Level 2 Option on Hedge Fund Portfolio Analytics provides an overview of hedge fund portfolio analytics and risk management best practices.  This program was primarily designed by the Chief Investment Officer (CIO) of a U.S.-based long-short equity hedge fund and is intended for hedge fund portfolio managers, analysts, wealth managers, asset allocators, traders, and those professionals looking to enter the industry into one of these roles. Please see below for the learning modules and study guide for this program.

Learning Modules

•  Portfolio Characteristics of Various Hedge Fund Investment Strategies
•  Asset Allocation
•  Investment Risk Management
•  Risk-Adjusted Performance Measures

The required readings and resources for the CHP Level 2 on Portfolio Analytics program can be found in the study guide.
