Job Description for Hedge Fund Manager

Hedge funds are a special type of pooled investment fund. They are funds that generally avoid a great deal of government regulation by being only available to certain licensed or established investors or investment companies. They are not generally offered to the public at large. A hedge fund manager is the person who is responsible for the investment strategies of the fund. He or she decides which investments to pursue and how actively to pursue them. Hedge fund managers typically pursue high risk, high capital investments for their respective funds, as they operate with much more leniency than other investment vehicles.
