« Back to Glossary Index

A hedge fund is an alternative investment vehicle available primarily to sophisticated investors, such as institutions and individuals with significant assets. Unlike mutual funds, hedge funds are not subject to some of the regulations that are designed to protect investors and typically have more leeway in their investment strategies, including short selling, leveraging, and using derivatives. Hedge funds aim for high returns and can be riskier than traditional investment funds.
