A hedge fund is a private investment fund that implements a variety of investment strategies designed to protect investors from market downturns or maximize returns during market upswings. Participation in a hedge fund is limited to accredited or qualified individual investors and certain institutional investors. Hedge fund managers often contract for substantial 'performance fees' whereby the manager receives a sizable portion of the fund's returns (say, 20% of any gains), but does not share in any of the downside risk. A hedge fund investment may include restrictions on an investor's ability to withdraw money before a specified time.
