  • The Complete Guide to Hedge Funds and Hedge Fund Strategies HEDGE FUNDS – background Although they have existed for decades, hedge funds really burst on to the investment scene a little over a decade ago, where they were seen as opaque and mysterious but over the past decade the industry has changed and evolved. Hedge funds are now within reach of “almost” every investor, and their strategies and operations are far more transparent. However they are investment funds that apply original investment strategies that cannot be applied by classic managers and such investment products need to be understood. Hedge funds offer superior returns for investors, with varying risk profiles, and remain a core part of the modern investment landscape. View slide
