Hedge Funds
About

Hedge funds are a type of investment vehicle that pools funds and employs several strategies to earn an active return for its investors. Hedge funds may be aggressively managed or use derivatives as leverage in both the domestic and international markets with the goal of generating high returns. Because hedge funds often have low correlations to traditional portfolios of stocks and bonds, allocating an exposure to hedge funds can add diversity to your portfolio.

TipRanks & Hedge Funds
Performance & Ranking

TipRanks measures the performance of hedge funds based on information submitted to the SEC. Any hedge fund managing over $100M is required to submit a 13F form to the SEC which lists their current holdings at the end of each fiscal quarter. TipRanks uses this information to determine how each hedge fund performed in comparison to other hedge funds and to the S&P 500. Top hedge funds are determined by those that generate the highest return based on their stock portfolio.
