Hedge funds the invsetment alternative for institutional

  1. 1. “HEDGE FUNDS- THE INVSETMENT ALTERNATIVE FOR INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS AND THE ADVENT ON THE RETAIL MARKET” BY: RIYA JAIN A1802012348
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION • Hedge funds are pooled investment scheme subject to less regulatory restriction on the use of leverage, short selling and derivatives than the other regulated investment vehicles • In particular, the investment vehicles accessible to retail investor are permitted to invest in hedge fund. Institutional investors are just what the name implies: large institutions, such as banks, insurance companies, pension funds, mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs),that buy and sell securities for their investment portfolios.
  3. 3. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY: • Understanding Hedge funds conceptually. • Studying the various types of hedge funds. • To make a depth study of the hedge funds indices. • Studying the difference between Mutual Funds and Hedge Funds. • Understanding the effect on the retail market.
  4. 4. RESEARCH METHODOLOGY RESEARCH OBJECTIVES: • To study the investment alternative via hedge funds. • Comparative study of hedge funds i.e Global funds and Equity hedge funds. • Understanding the effect on retail market. DATA COLLECTION: • In this study, majorly secondary sources will be used to collect data and establish the points of concern (Secondary sources: internet, research papers, news articles etc.).
  5. 5. RESEARCH DESIGN: • The research is going to be descriptive, as it will explain the Hedge Funds- The Investment Alternative For Institutional Investors And The Advent On The Retail Market. TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES: • Tabulation of Hedge Funds on the basis of daily, monthly and historical performances.
  6. 6. RECOMMENDATIONS • Hedge Funds allow the investors to establish investment strategies that are dramatically different from the traditional long-only strategy used by the traditional vehicles like mutual funds. • The retail investors are now able, in some case to access in the alternative asset. In many jurisdiction, where the direct retail participation in a hedge fund is prohibited, there are not rule about the indirect participation. • In particular, the investment vehicles accessible to retail investor are permitted to invest in hedge fund. Institutional investors are just what the name implies: large institutions, such as banks, insurance companies, pension funds, mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that buy and sell securities for their investment portfolios.
  7. 7. CONCLUSION • The Hedge Fund Index is a measure of the average return of all hedge funds (excepting Funds of Funds) in the database. • Thus we conclude that the retail investors are now able, in some case to access in the alternative asset. In many jurisdiction, where the direct retail participation in a hedge fund is prohibited, there are not rule about the indirect participation. In particular, the investment vehicles accessible to retail investor are permitted to invest in hedge fund. • By 2015, retail alternative investments are expected to account for one-quarter of revenues and a majority of revenue growth.
