I'm starting a boutique hedge fund. Anyhow, my mother told a certain big wig in the fund management industry...we're talking the Warren Buffet of Canada, you can probably figure it out. Anyhow, without even hearing about my fund, he said I'm greedy and have no morals, and that I should work in real industry. He said hedge funds provide nothing. My fund is small, trades in relatively illiquid securities, and provides real value to an individual's (not an institution) portfolio. This guy is 80, famous, and hates hedge funds. Any thoughts why he is so critical? I see myself as making markets more efficient, and helping make friends and family rich.
