HEDGE FUND INVESTMENT STRATEGIES

Hedge funds differ in the amount of investment risk they are willing to undertake. Investment strategies vary enormously, some use ***leverage*** and derivatives while others are more conservative and employ little or no leverage. Hedge funds are typically highly specialised and trade within their area of expertise. Strategies may be designed to be directional (which try to anticipate market movements) or market-neutral (which have low correlation to the overall market movement). Due to an increase in institutional demand, some hedge funds restrict their investments to long positions in stocks like ordinary mutual funds.

Explanation:
The use of borrowed capital to enlarge the size of the business to a size greater than would be possible using only equity capital. Because the return to borrowed capital is fixed (interest rate), the rate of return (profit or loss) to equity capital is magnified. It is used when the returns from using additional capital is expected to be greater than the cost of borrowing it.
