About to write a paper on hedge funds?

It seems to be very difficult for students to write a decent paper on hedge funds. This is probably because the industry tries to obscure itself by not submitting too much offical information and also by a lack of understanding by many journalists. This includes Wikipedia, which features only a warning about systemic risk by the ECB.

The Banque de France has dedicated its recent Financial Stability Review to hedge funds. This should be a better source than those mentioned above. The Special Issue can be downloaded on the website for free.
