The author suggests an empirical model to analyze the investment style of individual hedge funds and fund of funds. This approach is based on a mixture of the style analysis approach suggested by Sharpe , the factor push approach used in stress testing, and historical simulation. The parameter estimates from this model are inputs in the Value‐at‐Risk analysis for a sample of 2,934 funds over the 1994–2000 period. The in‐sample and out‐of‐sample results suggest that the proposed approach is useful and may constitute a valuable tool for assessing the investment style and risk of hedge funds.
