Hedge Fund Strategies

The term “hedge fund strategies” describes the specific method the fund manager uses to earn profit.  Whether the hedge fund strategy is focused on short selling equities, or buying options in managed futures, it all can be effective if done right.  The truth is, every hedge fund has their own strategy, making each unique from the rest. Sure, there are hedge funds with similar strategies, but every fund manager has their own “secret sauce”.   This is what attracts their investors, and more importantly, decides the fate of their hedge fund.

With today’s market volatility, good hedge fund investments can be very hard to find. Though many hedge fund managers have focused on equity markets, in recent years, other types of hedge funds have come onto the scene.  Whether it’s forex, futures, or options, the new wave of hedge funds is here, and it’s only getting bigger. Let’s face it, fixed equities are a thing of the past, and with alternative investments doing so well, it is hard to invest anywhere else.

As you can see, hedge funds are a great method of building wealth whether you’re investing or brokering. The point to remember is, hedge funds are nothing more than a corporate investment structure, and no two funds are identical.  Just like any other market, some hedge funds did very well in recent years, and others simply flopped. The difference always lies within the strategy, market, and discretion of the hedge fund manager.  In short, the term hedge fund doesn’t represent a market, it represents a corporate structure. Don’t get caught up in all of the hedge fund media hype, or you’ll be like most of the public, blinded by ignorance.
