Hedge fund

A fund, usually used by wealthy individuals and institutions, which is allowed to use 

Aggressive

 strategies that are unavailable to mutual 

Fund

, including 

Selling short

, leverage, 

Program

 trading, 

Swap

Arbitrage

, and 

Derivative

Hedge

 funds are 

Exempt

 from many of the rules and regulations governing other mutual 

Fund

, which allows them to accomplish 

Aggressive

 investing goals. They are restricted by law to no more than 100 investors per fund, and as a result most 

Hedge

 funds set extremely 

High

 minimum investment amounts, ranging anywhere from $250,000 to over $1 million. As with traditional mutual 

Fund

, investors in 

Hedge

 funds pay a management fee; however, 

Hedge

 funds also collect a percentage of the profits (usually 20%).
