Hedge Fund

Family Office Definition: Hedge Fund

Hedge Fund definition:  A hedge fund employs various hedging techniques to reduce exposure to market risk. A hedge fund manager’s goal is to not be bound by the traditional stock and bond markets and instead perform independent of market fluctuations.  Access to hedge funds is often limited to accredited investors, require high investment minimums, and offer low liquidity with withdrawal restrictions.  Hedge funds are not as transparent or highly regulated as public securities (mutual funds and stocks).  The tax treatment of hedge fund investments can be complex with significant short-term gain tax liability.
