Hedge Funds

Hedge funds are alternative investments that use pooled funds to employ different strategies to earn active returns for their investors. Hedge funds may be aggressively managed or make use of derivatives and leverage in both domestic and international markets with the goal of generating high returns.

Hedge funds face less regulation than mutual funds and other investment vehicles. These funds are more expensive compared to conventional investment funds and are generally only offered to accredited investors, high net worth individuals or sophisticated investors.
