Want more profits? Get ready to take more risks

Investors looking to keep the good returns rolling in will have to take more risk than they've had to in some time.

That's the investment outlook from Troy Gayeski, senior portfolio manager at SkyBridge Capital, a hedge fund that manages $10.3 billion for clients.

"You've got to be more realistic in what you can make," he said during the SALT 2014 conference in Las Vegas, an event his firm sponsors and which plays host to more than 2,000 hedge fund managers and investment professionals each year. "You have to take a little more risk to make it."

Gayeski talked about his outlook for the broader market, his views on how monetary policy will affect investment choices, and on how SkyBridge has managed to keep its clients satisfied.
