BBC Insiders Debate - Hedge Fund managers

Hedge-fund managers typically have a reputation for arrogance, secrecy and an instinct for the main chance - seizing opportunities where the rewards are vast, but the losses can be catastrophic.

Partly blamed for the current credit crunch, hedge fund managers operate in a virtually unregulated domain - but is that about to change?

Hedge fund managers Jim Crayton, Tim Frost and Dan Brownstein along with banker Edward Charles discuss the ins and outs of their high-octane world. They talk about the current global economic crisis and the role of the hedge fund manager in finding solutions.

Owen Bennett-Jones chairs this interesting debate.
