Question: How do I find performance, evaluation and rankings info on hedge funds?

Answer


SEC's Investor.gov defines a Hedge Fund as funds that “pool money from investors and invest in securities or other types of investments with a goal of getting positive returns. Hedge funds are not regulated as heavily as mutual funds and generally have more leeway than mutual funds to pursue investments and strategies that may increase the risk of investment losses.”  The SEC’s Investor page provides additional information on Hedge Funds in their  Hedge Funds Investor Bulletin.

Go to the Virtual Business Library's Journals/Newspapers section.  In addition to full text searching in the various resources listed, the following suggested titles:
