  • We take this approach for empirical reasons. We interpret the large asset pricing literature as suggesting that the Fama-French factor model is a robust specification of the systematic risk in equity returns. It can explain the cross- sectional variations in stock returns quite well.

  • They say what doesn’t break you makes you stronger. For hedge funds, 2012 was a backbreaking year to put it mildly.

Add the extra weight of an increasing regulatory burden, and many fund leaders might have been forgiven for packing it in.
