Can the returns posted on HedgeCo differ from the actual returns of the fund?

Possibly, HedgeCo relies on managers to input their own data into our website. If there is an error in the posting, or a manager simply posts an erroneous return, we will do our best to revise them in a timely fashion.

Do I still pay fees even if the fund loses money?

This is dependent on the fund’s policy. Some funds have a "high water mark." This means that if you lose more than your initial investment, the fund will not charge you their incentive fee until you at regain the initial investment back. You WILL however, pay a management fee on your assets that remain in the fund. This management fee is typically 1-2%, but can go as high as the manager deems appropriate.

Top

What are hurdle rates?

The minimum investment return a fund must exceed before a performance allocation/incentive fee can be taken.

What are lock-up periods?
