What is a Hedge Fund?


Simply put, hedge fund is a fancy name. And you don’t need to worry about the name if you can understand the inherent meaning within it.

Hedge fund includes two sorts of partners. One partner is called general partner and other partners are called limited partners. In lucid way, the general partner of a hedge fund is the fund manager who manages the money. Then what the limited partners do? They invest money into the fund.

But you may wonder why the limited partners invest money into a fund? They invest fund to maximize the return on investment, of course, that is given. But there is another part to this equation and that’s why this fund is called hedge. The limited partners expect the general partner (fund manager) to eliminate risk altogether from the investment.

There may be another question lurking in your mind – why they invest into hedge fund and not any other fund! The basic answer is hedge fund promises to maximize their return irrespective of market performance.

Here are some of the features of hedge fund. Let’s have a look –

  • Only qualified investors are eligible for investing into hedge funds: Yes, not all investors are qualified for investing into hedge funds. And your net worth has a lot to do in this case. Usually, you need to have a net worth of US $1 million excluding your residence to be qualified to invest into hedge funds.
  • Wider investment arena: Hedge fund can invest on anything to make money. It can be stocks, real estates, land, derivatives or currencies. It depends on the decision taken by the particular hedge fund.
  • Leverage is often applied in hedge funds: To maximize the return of hedge funds, the idea is to always borrow money and apply leverage.
  • Fee: If you want to invest in hedge fund or want to learn the nitty-gritty of it, you need to have knowledge about the fee. Usually, hedge funds charge in both ways – a management fee of 2% and a 20% cut on any gains generated.
