Hedge fund managers or portfolio managers as they are often referred to, have great latitude in the investment direction of the assets. For this reason, managers must be highly-skilled in buying and shorting across multiple asset classes. The educational background of investment portfolio managers varies, but it is common to see managers with CFA designations or MBA degrees from well-respected universities. The portfolio manager is essentially the captain of the investment ship and must understand all the particulars that operate under his or her command. A well-educated, experienced portfolio manager still needs marketing skills in order to raise capital for a hedge fund.
