International Hedge funds

International hedge funds

What are hedge funds?
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) gives this description:

Like mutual funds, hedge funds pool investors' money and invest those funds in financial instruments in an effort to make a positive return. However, unlike mutual funds, hedge funds are not registered with the SEC. This means that hedge funds are subject to very few regulatory controls. In addition, many hedge fund managers are not required to register with the SEC and therefore are not subject to regular SEC oversight. Because of this lack of regulatory oversight, hedge funds historically have been available to accredited investors and large institutions, and have limited their investors through high investment minimums (e.g., $1 million).

Many hedge funds seek to profit in all kinds of markets by pursuing leveraging and other speculative investment practices that may increase the risk of investment loss.

What are "funds of hedge funds?"
A fund of hedge funds is a relatively new fund product. Rather than investing in individual securities, a fund of hedge funds invests in several hedge funds. Some funds of hedge funds register their securities with the SEC. These funds of hedge funds must provide investors with a prospectus and must file semi-annual reports with the SEC.
