When sharemarkets are performing poorly, hedge funds are often touted as the one form of investment which can still generate strong positive returns. Extracting hard facts from between the lines of the promotional hype, however, can be quite a job! What exactly are hedge funds? And how do they operate? How can you invest in them? Should they be included in your portfolio? There are many questions for investors to consider.

  The term 'hedge fund' has no legal definition, or even any commonly agreed upon meaning, and it can be misleading at times. It is therefore essential for investors to be fully informed before entering such a fund. In this comprehensive guide, Charles Beelaerts looks in detail at:

the types of funds available;

what to look for when selecting a fund;

the benefits and risks of hedge funds;

hedge fund strategies and performance;

the role of hedge funds in a portfolio;

fees and taxation issues.
