Why invest in hedge funds? Put simply, hedge funds seek better-than-market returns.

Hedge funds provide unique portfolio strategies for investors seeking non-correlated returns. What many have in common: high initial minimum requirements. We provide qualified retail investors to enter the hedge fund space for a substantially smaller commitment.

What are hedge funds?

Hedge funds subscribe to non-traditional portfolio management strategies. The goal: earn market-beating returns. A hedge fund manager creates a prospectus, and individuals and businesses who believe in their philosophy buy in. It’s important to note that, unlike mutual funds or ETFs, hedge fund managers have complete freedom in their investment strategy.

That’s why hedge funds are so unique, even for an alternative investment. They explore different markets and find patterns and trends.

Some hedge funds invest in traditional assets in a unique way (portfolio allocation, sector specification, etc.).

One of the best examples of this is the equity long-short strategy. In essence, they go long on stocks set to rise in value and short on stocks set to decrease in value. The goal of this strategy is to mitigate your risk, as you minimize your stock market exposure. The benefit, as well, is that as long as one strategy is “more right” than another (i.e. the longs gain more than the shorts lose, or vice versa), you come out on top. This means that, even in a severe market downturn, it’s possible to make money.

Other hedge funds get very creative with their tactics. Strategies range from purchasing water rights to buying catastrophe bonds to investing in single malt scotch. Some even more unique policies involving longing/shorting commodities based on how many ships enter and leave ports globally or longing/shorting the economy based on how full parking lots are outside malls.

Why invest in hedge funds?

Put simply, hedge funds seek better-than-market returns.

How much better? By the close of 2019, the 20 highest-performing hedge funds managers collectively reaped in $59.3 billion just over the course of 2019. Leading the pack was $8.4 billion from TCI’s manager Christopher Hohn, followed by $7.3 billion from Lone Pine’s Steve Mandel.

The upside is high, but the reality is that hedge funds are high-risk ventures, with between 10-20% of them failing in their first year. But after crossing that one-year hurdle, their odds of success increase.

What are the world’s biggest hedge funds?

The top ten hedge funds in the world have over $538 billion in assets under management (AUM):

  1. Bridgewater Associates: $130 billion hedge fund AUM
  2. Renaissance Technologies: $68 billion hedge fund AUM
  3. Man Group: $62 billion hedge fund AUM
  4. AQR Capital Management: $61 billion hedge fund AUM

How do you access hedge funds?

Most people think they can’t access hedge funds. That’s because hedge funds require investors to be qualified purchasers, meaning they’re either a high net worth company or individual.

Some hedge funds require investors to have a minimum of $5 million in investable assets at their disposal. That’s not surprising when you realize that minimum investments for many hedge funds are $1,000,000 and can go as high as $10,000,000 or more.

But at HUDSONPOINT, we can help you access the world of hedge funds with a substantially smaller commitment.

Our platform pools together the combined capital of our clients, giving us the buying power to participate in attractive hedge funds while keeping your minimum investment as low as $100,000.
