What is a hedge fund?
In this article we will consider what is a hedge fund and its benefits.
Hedge Funds (English Hedge Funds) – a type of investment funds. Hedge funds use the most effective money management strategies. “Traditional” funds do not apply such strategies.
The concept of “hedge fund” comes from the word “hedge”, which means insuring investment, price or currency risks.
Hedge funds are a versatile, flexible and dynamic financial instrument. In most cases, the strategies they use are based on the simultaneous opening of “long” and “short” positions in different markets. Hedge funds also use strategies that derive income from an inefficient market, as well as futures and options.
