All the Benefits of the Market

Topic: Hedge Funds

Synopsis: “What’s been holding the Canadian market back? One reason may be that investors don’t fully understand the varying investment styles and mandates of the different funds, which can be complicated. Hedge fund managers can employ one of the widest range of investment strategies out there, including hedging against market downturns, investing in asset classes such as currencies or distressed securities, and utilizing return-enhancing tools such as leverage, derivatives, and arbitrage. A hedge fund can take both long and short positions, use arbitrage, buy and sell undervalued securities, trade options or bonds, and invest in almost any opportunity in any market where it foresees impressive gains at reduced risk.”
