Hedge Fund

A risky investment pool, generally open only to well-heeled investors, that seeks very high returns by taking very great risks. Hedge funds typically are free to engage in all sorts of investment gymnastics in pursuit of returns that should (but don't always) dwarf those available simply by investing in stocks. Hedge funds will short stock, use leverage, options, futures, etc. Hedge funds are usually partnerships whose general partner, sometimes a famous money-manager or wheeler-dealer, gets a bigger cut of the profits as incentive and reward.
