  • The use of hedge funds in financial portfolios has grown dramatically since the start of the 21st century. 
  • It has freer rein to invest aggressively and in a wider variety of financial products than most mutual funds. 
  • It is an official partnership of investors who pool money together to be guided by professional management firms
  • A hedge fund is generally only accessible to accredited investors
  • Hedge fund investors require a net worth that exceeds $1 million. For this reason, Hedge funds have earned the dubious reputation of being a speculative luxury for the rich.
  • Hedge fund strategies include long-short equity, market neutral, volatility arbitrage, and merger arbitrage.
  • Hedge funds charge both an expense ratio and a performance fee. The common fee structure is known as two and twenty (2 and 20)—a 2% asset management fee and a 20% cut of generated gains.
