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.
