I didn’t know hedge fund managers ever had a reputation higher than a snakes belly
Most people are not allowed to invest in hedge funds which is why most people are OK with hedge funds going bankrupt.
It took a minute to understand the metaphor.
My first thought was: “Wear a French T-shirt”.
Hmm… A red power tie, blames the media and thinks he should be thanked for gaming the system. Who does that remind me of?
Bernie Madoff. Nothing more needs to be said.
Am I the only one who laughed at the way the bear lapped up his beer?
Anthropomorphic means applying human qualities to animals – This seems to (also) do/imply the reverse – it seems to be applying animal qualities to humans.
Hedge fund managers have a reputation from making a lot of money. For themselves.Their clients? Not so much.
Welcome to Gatorland!
Today’s drawing is wonderful. I don’t think I’ve seen Wiley gators before, but I always enjoy the bear!
Why not a hedge hog, too cute?
WILEY BEAR!!! YAY!!! (And in a floral shirt, Too!!!)
I just love seeing the Wiley bears faces… So cute and expressive!
…and, back to the swamp!
Weird. I thought hedge fund manglers were all Fat Cats.
We have laws against many things, creating a hedge fund should be one of them. Could be if all the people who are tired of a minority (the rich who think the world revolves around themselves and everything should go their way) voted for people who wouldn’t be influenced by money.
Nothing says hedge fund manager better than a swamp-dwelling, opportunistic predator who will devour almost any creature it can get its jaws on!
Thanks Wiley, for your very funny satire and excellent art work.
Love the bear’s over-the-shoulder facial expression in panel 3 1/2.
The martini was shaken, not stirred. All operations are top secret.
Maybe if they changed the name…
There’s something prickly and vacillating about “hedge”.
Vampires are never admired. Except in bad movies where they just Sparkle.
Who needs a reputation when you have a hot car, a gorgeous wife, and a huge mansion? Of course, I’m an attorney and not a hedge fund manager.
In case you missed it, Bernie Madoff finally went to that big hedge fund cesspool recently. I only hope that they flushed him twice – its a long way down to there.
As he goes back to the swamp
Wiley’s bears are always a tonic—definitely enjoying his drink in panel 2!
They promise the customer fast liquidity of their assets. For a modest fee, they can put you below the poverty line faster than a rigged slot machine.
