Hedge Funds

Hedge funds are portfolios of investments that utilize complex investment strategies to maximize returns of investment whilst reducing risk through the use of numerous financial instruments. Hedge funds are typically established as private investment partnerships that incorporate small numbers of investors who present significant sums of money as an initial investment. Hedge funds are thus run and managed by highly specialist investment professionals.

Created by industry professionals with a wealth of experience, Fitzwilliam Institute’s online Postgraduate Diploma in Hedge Funds course features case studies and real life hedge funds briefs, to hone best skills and practices. Our practical skills approach model provides you with hands-on experience from key industry figures and all the skills you need for a successful career.
